Non-Dairy Chocolate Pudding

2 cups soy milk
1/4 cup unbleached cane sugar
3 T. cocoa powder or carob powder
2 T. cornstarch
2 t. vanilla

In a double boiler, place the soy milk, sugar, cocoa powder, and cornstarch, and whisk well to combine. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring constantly, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Transfer the pudding to a glass bowl, small individual glass bowls, or to small individual airtight containers. Allow the pudding to chill several hours before serving. The pudding can be topped with a tofu whipped topping, sliced fresh fruit, or nuts if desired.

*Variation - to make a fruit flavored pudding, prepare the pudding in the same manner as above but omit the cocoa powder. Stir in 1 cup of sliced fruit and add more sugar if needed to adjust the sweetness of the pudding. Other flavorings may also be used, such as almond, lemon, mint, or maple.
