Go Bio Chocolate Pudding Mix

The girls have been nagging me to make jello again, but I won't buy the conventional crap at the grocery store and the past few times I've been to the health food store I forgot.  Fortunately, this week I finally got around to it and was very pleased to see that this time they had cherry flavour.  I love this brand: no sugar (you add your own sweetener so I use stevia) and no artificial colours or flavours!!

I also noticed they have pudding mix so I purchased the chocolate to give it a try.

Like the jello you add your own sweetener, so I used stevia again, and you use whatever milk you want (I used almond).  You just bring the milk to a boil and mix the package with some additional cold milk and then whisk it into the hot milk.  Unfortunately, it clumped up immediately.  It was actually a total lumpy mess.  I don't know if I did something wrong, but I did follow the instructions on the package.  In order to salvage it, I let it cool down and then scooped it into my Big Boss Blender along with another 1/4 cup of almond milk.  This successfully smoothed it out, however, I still found it too stiff.  I think next time I would add even more milk...or make some homemade instead.  The girls liked it but I definitely was disappointed with this product compared with their jelly powder, so I don't think I'll buy it again.
