I set to work this afternoon, needing something 'quick' and tasty. I found it! I found it super easy (I used the microwave - just a couple minutes at a time made it "easy as pie"!) I did make 1 change - since I had little milk on hand, I used a can of coconut milk then topped it off with regular milk to the 3 cup mark. It was just as easy to prepare as a pudding mix and much tastier!!! My husband was full of compliments on this one. Thanks for a terrific recipe Marg!
