This is the stuff Grandma made for you when you were a kid, if you're lucky. I subbed 1/2 cup half and half for equal part or the milk, and instead of using vanilla I mashed up a banana and ended up with the best ever banana pudding. I plan on trying this with pineapple juice for part of the milk as well.
