Ingredients: 
  • 2 1⁄3 c 2% milk, divided  
  • 1⁄2 c granulated sugar    
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄3 c unsweetened cocoa powder      
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 banana, sliced    
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract        
Directions: 
  1. In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups of the milk and all the sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar, until bubbles form around edge of pan.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together remaining milk, egg, cocoa powder and cornstarch until smooth. While whisking briskly, gradually add hot milk mixture. Pour back into saucepan and cook, stirring constantly, for 8 to 10 minutes or until thickened (do not let boil). Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in banana and vanilla. Serve warm or pour into a bowl, place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding to prevent skin from forming and refrigerate for about 2 hours, until chilled.
