Why Organic Milk Is Worth the Extra Cost & How to Make Chocolate Pudding

I am so thrilled to partner with Horizon Organic tell you why it’s good to buy Organic Milk and create a delicious dessert made with organic ingredients that will satisfy your chocolate cravings!

Buying organic milk is worth the extra cost as it’s better for your health and the environment.

Organic milk comes from cows that aren’t treated with antibiotics or given growth hormones. Not only that, organic rules prohibit the use of certain harmful pesticides on crops and promote environmental care.

This recipe has been created using Horizon Organic milk.  Choosing organic milk while shopping is one place where it is worth it to spend a little bit extra as buying organic milk is for better for yourself, your family and our environment.

Organic milk is worth the extra cost because of its health and environmental benefits, I’ve created an organic chocolate pudding recipe so those who choose to live a more organic lifestyle have the ability to enjoy a decadent (and easy) dessert  without preservatives. You can feel better knowing exactly what you’re eating while still enjoying your favorite desserts!

Chocolate Pudding is an easy recipe to make, it really doesn’t take much to prepare from scratch. I know you can get chocolate pudding in a jar or a box but there are a lot of ingredients (and preservatives) that I can’t even pronounce.  So I prefer to make my own!

Depending on the time of year, we love to have fresh berries in desserts like Blueberry Cobbler or Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Crisps. This delicious homemade pudding is perfect to top with raspberries and strawberries from the garden.

How To Make Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate pudding is as quick to whip up as it is to devour. Start by mixing the dry ingredients in a saucepan – the cane sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk in Horizon Organic Reduced Fat Milk, and increase the heat to medium, stirring constantly.

Make sure you don’t stop stirring while the chocolate pudding thickens. This helps to avoid a lumpy chocolate pudding. Once the chocolate pudding reaches a boil, allow it to boil for about a minute. Don’t stop stirring!

Remove it from the heat, and stir in the Horizon Organic butter. Butter helps to give the pudding a velvety texture and a richer flavor. Cool it completely before you serve it!

  1. Hello!

    I made the chocolate pudding today and it came out great. Thank you! One question, vanilla is not listed in the ingredients but is included in the instructions to be added along with the butter. Do you have a suggested amount or is this ingredient optional?
    Thanks again.
