***Updated to fix all the kinks, tastes much better now*** I expanded on a simple blancmange recipe and adapted it to make it a special strawberry creation...since I now have a ton of strawberry Nesquik and want to be creative with it. And it turned out very yummy. :D It looks like it took a lot of effort but it didn't. This would probably make an awesome kid pleaser as well. NOTE: Cooking time does not include cooling/setting time. Vegans and the lactose-intolerant-- if you use soymilk, rice milk, almond milk, etc. this will not set. You may want to try a tofu-and-blender approach instead.
- 1 3⁄4 cups milk
- 2 egg whites
- 5 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons strawberry-flavor Nestle Nesquik powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a medium saucepan, mix the milk together first with all the ingredients EXCEPT the egg whites and vanilla, with a wooden spoon or whisk. Don't turn on the heat yet.
- Whisk in the egg whites to the mixture, make sure there's no lumps.
- 3Carefully fold in the vanilla, making sure there's no lumpiness once again.
- Now turn on the heat to medium-high and whisk while it's heating, uncovered.
- Let stand for about a minute until it starts to boil. Keep mixing, and let the heat continue until the mixture thickens.
- When it thickens to a good pudding-like consistency, turn the heat off, and keep beating it with the wooden spoon or whisk to beat any lumps out and disperse the flavors properly.
- Pour into individual serving cups/ramekins/giant serving bowl whatever your choice is.
- Make sure you wrap the entire open area(s) with clingwrap! This is important to make sure an icky skin or gelatin-like consistency doesn't happen. (Props to Molly from Cooking Q&A for this tip, it really worked! :) ).
- Let set for at least 3 hours in the fridge prior to eating.
- Top with some whipped cream and enjoy! (Especially that Reddi Whip strawberry stuff for an intense berry overload.).
