Jello Instant Pudding and Soy Milk

Total Time

I've read lots of accounts of how soy milk won't set in Jello Instant Pudding because of the lack of casein, lack of calcium, etc. Here's how I got it to work


  1. 1. Heat soy milk to about 160 to 170. Just under boiling is fine.
  2. 2. Follow directions on back of box.
  3. You should see your pudding start to thicken as soon as you add in the powder. I used Jello Sugar and fat free chocolate pudding mix and pistachio pudding mix.

This recipe worked perfectly!

I made one batch, using 1 1/2 cups soy milk (heated to 150F on the stove) and one 3.9 oz box of Jello brand chocolate pudding mix. It thickened in minutes!

I had previously tried to use soy milk per the box instructions & it never thickened, glad I found this recipe!
