Update: November 2012

It is now a year since I first started to make my eggnog puddings and I have discovered a few things. The eggnog I like to drink the best is the mildest tasting one and when I use that to make puddings, they turn out very bland almost just like vanilla puddings.

This recipe basically can be used for any liquid you want to turn into a pudding: milk, chocolate milk (to make it more chocolaty add 2 Tablespoons of cocoa or carob), eggnog, soy milk, almond milk or any other kind of milk. I also use fruit juices, especially the ones that have vegetable mixed in with them, for these only use 1 Tablespoon sweetener. They make delightful desserts.
