Others may know this, but I made pudding last night for 1 point per serving. I used Jell-O Fat free pudding mix and instead of 2 cups milk I used 1 cup of vanilla almond milk (unsweetened) and 1/2 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt. Super creamy and yummy. Just thought I would share.

Thanks for sharing this. I had read that you cannot use almond (or soy or any other alternative milk) for instant pudding because it wouldn't firm up, but using the greek yogurt I guess does the trick. Good to know!

I had read the same thing. Someone said it came out like soup. I figured if you put Greek yogurt in soup it would thicken it, so I tried it out. It might work with plain almond milk too, but I did not have any in the house.

If you just use 1/2 as much almond milk as regular milk, it will solidfy. Doesn't make as much, but still tasty!

Also, I mix 1 cup almond milk, 1- 1/2 cups crushed ice, 2 tablespoons chocolate sugar free pudding mix and mix in blender for a shake. Somtimes I add vanilla extra and/or splenda.

Now everyone tells me after 4 cups of almond milk for 2 boxes of sugar free fat free for hubby.Rolling Eyes It was awful. And, of course, he wouldn't eat it.

There is a chemical called tetrasodium pyrophosphate which reacts with the milk to thicken. As soy or other plant based "milk" do not contain the key dairy ingredients instant pudding will not gel when they are used. This chemical is also used in soaps and detergents.

You can't make yogurt with almond milk. Yogurt is a dairy product. It would have to be labeled differently, for example Kroger Carb Smart Yogurt is labeled a dairy blend product, not yogurt.

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
