Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder sifted
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 banana diced

Method

In medium-size heavy saucepan or double boiler over medium heat, combine 2 cups (500 mL) of the milk with sugar, stirring often, for about 5 minutes or just until bubbles form around edge of pan.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together remaining milk, egg whites, cocoa and cornstarch; gradually whisk in hot milk mixture. Pour into clean saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring with wooden spoon, for about 10 minutes or until consistency of melted chocolate. Let cool slightly; stir in vanilla.

Place plastic wrap directly on surface of pudding; refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until cold. (Pudding can be prepared to the point and refrigerated for up to 2 days.) Just before serving, dice banana and stir into pudding.
