I am saddened by the comments on this blog that often take a judgmental turn. The information is intended to be just that -- information. You need to make your own decisions for your life and be accountable for your actions. I debated closing the blog, but feel there are many valuable items listed for families struggling with food allergies, especially early on.

If you need further information please contact a doctor. If you need to verify a product's ingredients, please look at current labels and contact the company yourself. Note many posts are several years old. Use your best judgment and do not make up comments to scare people.

Recipe for Soy Pudding

Wouldn't it be nice if you could just take the Jell-O pudding mix and add soy milk or rice milk? Hasn't worked for me. I found this great recipe on Silk's website and made it today. We rarely have dessert with dinner so it was a real treat!

Chocolate Soy Pudding
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
3 cups soy milk (vanilla or chocolate)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbsp dairy-free margarine (I used Blue Bonnet Light)

1. Mix sugar, cornstarch, cocoa and salt together in saucpan on stove.
2. Slowly add soy milk and stir constantly with whisk. Bring to boil.
3. Let simmer covered on low for 8 to 10 minutes to thicken. (I actually kept stirring and didn't cover or let sit simmering-- misread directions and turned out fine).
4. Take off heat. Stir in margarine and vanilla.
5. Refrigerate for an hour.

**One item we found that our daughter can tolerate that has milk is Cool Whip. My guess is that it is processed or some part of the milk protein is changed enough that she doesn't react. So we added that to the pudding with some sprinkes and she loved it. She actually ate more of the Cool Whip than the chocolate pudding. Beware of the dairy-free cool whip because it may not be milk free. Always check labels.**
