Note to self: Say no to silly challenges.
After giving up chocolate pudding for a week, I eased back into my habit with a single serving of pudding. How’s that for restraint?
Lite coconut milk works well for this easy microwave recipe. Keep in mind that cook time will vary depending on how powerful your microwave is, so you may need to adjust things a bit.

Pudding in a Mug
In a microwave safe cup, blend sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. Add coconut milk gradually, stirring to break up any clumps. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Cook for an additional 30 seconds (in a 1500 watt oven). Add vanilla extract. After stirring, let pudding chill in the fridge for an hour, or at least cool down a bit. Yield: 1 single serve chocolate pudding
