How to make vegan vanilla pudding from scratch
Add the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of the soy milk to a saucepan.
Whisk thoroughly until no lumps remain.
Gradually add the rest of the soy milk, whisking as you go.
Add the sugar and whisk again to combine.
Place the saucepan over a medium heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
Once boiling, let it cook for another 2 minutes, continuing to whisk.
At this point, the mixture will have thickened up.
Remove from the heat and mix in the vanilla extract.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to individual serving dishes and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
Enjoy as is or with your favorite toppings such as fresh berries or non-dairy whipped cream.
Be sure the pudding has thickened before removing it from the heat. If it has not thickened after 2 minutes of boiling and whisking, continue to cook for a little longer until it thickens up.
Store the pudding in the refrigerator, covered, for 3-5 days.
The pudding does not freeze well.
