Found your recipe while looking for a way to use up a lot of skim milk. It was better than I expected! Of course it doesn't taste as rich as pudding made with higher-fat milk, but it tastes EXACTLY like those cups of pre-made fat-free pudding from the store, if not better. And it's so simple and quick to throw together. I tried a second batch with stevia (8 Truvia packets) as an experiment, and that came out with the same texture, so I bet any sugar substitute would work. (Made for Bargain Basement tag game.)
