I’ve had a box of vanilla pudding in my cupboard for what seems like ages, it never looks appealing however my b/f wont go near home made pudding because he doesn’t like the texture, was that how this ended up in my cupboard? Is this a hint? Well lets see what I have to fix this…
Whipped Vanilla Bean Pudding
1 box Instant Vanilla Pudding
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 vanilla bean
1-3 drops brandy or bourbon (optional)
In a small sauce pan gently heat 2% milk to a simmer, then remove from heat. Add Vanilla bean seeds and wisk, let it sit for 10 minutes before transferring to the freezer to chill.
In a separate bowl whip the heavy cream to a whipped cream consistency. Transfer to refrigerator to chill.
Add chilled 2% vanilla bean milk, Instant pudding, whipped heavy cream and brandy/bourbon to blender and mix until smooth and fluffy.
Transfer to serving dish, chill for another 10 minutes then enjoy.
