Quick dark chocolate pudding
Some days you find yourself running around nonstop-- class, gym, research, meetings-- for 14 hours.
Those are the days that you come home and immediately start looking for chocolate.
This pudding is dark, chocolatey, and comes together quickly. More importantly, it sets while warm and tastes better warm... which means you can put it in your face faster.
Oh, and it's fat free. No biggie.
Adapted from Moosewood Restaurant Low-fat Favorites
3 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 cups skim milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine dry ingredients with milk in a deep saucepan. Cook over medium heat on the stovetop, stirring constantly until boiling. Lower heat and continue to cook, stirring constantly for an additional three to five minutes. Pour into serving cups, top with fresh berries, and eat immediately.
Or, you know, be civilized and let it chill in the fridge.
