"As hard as I tried I could not find a recipe for Vanilla Pudding mix that I could use as a base for other puddings or to add to other recipe's that I wanted to make, yet didn't want to buy a bunch of packages of pudding for. After 5 (yes I said 5) attempts I came up with one that was creamy enough, and tasty enough to call good. This can be made ahead...then just add a few ingredients and you have pudding. Great for gifting and camping...Higher in Calories yet low in sodium and potassium.*** NOTE*** for those missing the flavor of eggs or having problems with this setting up properly ... I found I liked it better when I added two egg yolks slightly beaten and put some of the hot mix in whipped it and added to the pudding mix as it cooked. You are right it adds to the flavor."

"This was very good and so easy. I substituted 4 cups splenda for the 4 cups of sugar. It worked great. Thanks"
"Your recipe has really saved me...I needed a pudding mix for another recipe as we do not get ready made ones here.....So I used this recipe and scaled it down to my requirments and it worked so Thank U."
"For what it is, this is a good recipe. I do miss the taste and texture of eggs, but as a recipe meant to meet a specific health need, it's very good indeed. It's rich, creamy, sweet, and more flavorful than I thought it would be. It's easy to put together and easy to cook. I love a recipe that allows for a lot of versatility and this is it. Instead of vanilla, I could use any extract and any complimentary fruit and get a completely different dessert from one mix. Next time I'll try coconut extract and some sliced bananas, or almond extract with some toasted sliced almonds."
"I followed the recipe but it took more than one hour to thicken on double boiler and then i put it on direct flame as i was tired whisking it but still it did not thicken and i added gelatin powder and whipped cream .The flavor was too good but it did not set in chocolate eclair dessert and remained flowy ..Can anyone tell where i made mistake ? i HAVE SAVED THE MIX IN TIGHT JAR FOR NEXT TIME .PLEASE HELP AND GUIDE ME ...THANX."
"I scaled this to one batch. Your recipe saved me from a "pie disaster" (see my pineapple pie review). Thanks so much Chabear01! Roxygirl"
"This is so simple and is a great thing to store in the cupboard for any time! I also used this in your delicous Mock Sour Cream Raisin Pie Recipe #164086! Thanks for the recipe!"
