what's FYI? :)

QUESTION - could I use honey instead of maple syrup? and water instead of milk? what do you think? I can't get either of them in shop.

FYI means for your information.

honey isnt vegan to most vegans, but im sure that would work if thats what u want to use. and water probably wouldnt work aswell as soymilk because then it wont be creamy like pudding.

thanx for the recipe artichoke :D

basteq, please have a look at the honey (http://www.veganforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8&highlight=honey) thread. Honey isn't vegan.

Would have liked to try one of those ones on sale at BVF but I ran of pennies before I left they looked top notch ;-)

Either I jumped the gun or the recipe doesn't work. When it started to get thick, I put the pudding in cups and refrigerated it. Two hours later, it was still runny. This morning still, it was runny. So either I didn't wait for it to thicken long enough or the recipe doesn't work.

I will try Moonbeam's recipe next. I'm sorry for the problems this caused anyone.

I don't think honey would work, either, and definitely not water!

Artichoke :) s*** happens. btw when I was off my vegan diet I ate ARROZ CON LECHE (rice with milk). It was very good. I thought I might try some rice pudding. I guess that would be about the consistency I'd like. Tapioka looks very yummy although I've never tried it.

artichoke, try freezing it :D works wonders! u think it would freeze it or not work if left in too long but honestly, leave it in for twenty minutes and it will probably be the thickness u want. (i didnt try that for this recipe, i tried that for an icing recipe i used)

I tried the Great Good Desserts Naturally chocolate pudding today. It's cooling right now, but it tastes soooo good!

This stuff is rich. I don't think anyone could overeat. Man, I'm full from five bites.

Arrowroot does thicken but you have to reach that point right before boiling. Roughly speaking... I think I read that arrowroot looses its thickening abilities if boiled. But there are so many thickening agents I might be mixing things up. I think it is arrowroot though.

Re honey ... instead of honey try using Agave Nectar it's amazingly delicious:) Personally for a chocolate pudding maple syrup or sugar is more complimentary.
