I recently bought a whole bunch of boxed instant pudding, and I was so excited because there was no gluten or dairy listed in the ingredients. I planned on making my kids some yummy pudding for a treat, when I noticed another sentence on the box: “This product will not set with soy milk.” I use soy milk, and I assume the same thing is true with the other non-caseine milks. Feel free to leave a comment in the comment section if anyone has found an alternative to regular milk that works for setting pudding. I did solve this problem in an even tastier way, however. I made the pudding with the soy milk anyway, then used the plastic popsicle containers (can be found at Wal-mart and many dollar stores) to pour the pudding in. They took several hours to freeze, but once they did, they were a big hit. It felt almost like I was giving my kids icecream pops. What a hit, and such a great idea for a cold yummy treat in the summertime.
