Chocolate and Malt Pudding

Randy Mayor
Yield 6 servings
Puddings are good sources of potassium because their main ingredient, milk, is potassium-rich. Both the malted milk powder and the chocolate add small amounts of the mineral to this creamy dessert, which has 539 milligrams of potassium in each serving. If you like strong malt flavor, you can increase the malt powder to one cup. This recipe earned our Test Kitchens' highest rating.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup malted milk powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
