    Better than I expected

    Vicki Ott from Edinburgh, IN

    I was doubtful at first that it would make this too rich, but I was wrong. I'll never go back to using plain milk in pudding again.

    If you really want to try something good. Pour chilled carnation milk on top of chocolate ice cream. UUUUMMMM!!!!!!

    rich and creamy

    Ann Leaver from WYOMING, MI

    My family loves pudding this way over using regular milk. It makes the pudding so rich and creamy using the evaporated milk. I make them in individual Gladware 1/2 cup round cups so that they can take them in their lunches. This is definitely the way to make pudding!!!

    Quick & Creamy Pudding

    Agnes Crutcher from Mason, OH

    Yes, I use Carnation when making pudding --- it makes it so creamy and delicious. It just seems to have a wonderful taste and flavor that milk does not give. It also has all the nutrition need, and this is important. I do use the Low Fat (most of the time).

    Quick @ Creamy Pudding

    M. Hoover from CHAMBERSBURG, PA

    My husband likes anything chocolate. Used this recipe for pudding and he couldn't tell the difference. It makes the pudding more creamy when the using canned milk. I use the fat free since we have to watch the fat in our diet. I will be using this recipe all the time.

    I never knew that you could use carnation evaporated milk in pudding. I just never thought about it. This is a great "emergency essential" item to have on hand to give the kids something fun to make.

    so very creamy

    Holly Charrier from CROWVILLE, LA

    I have used Carnation milk in my pudding for years, my mom taught me that secret along with using it in my creamed potatoes, mac and cheese, ranch dressing mixes, I even use it in my buttercream cake icing. It makes everything so much better.

    Sooooo Delectible!!!

    Martha Robertson from Mt. Jackson, VA

    This is so luscious, and you'd think it was made with fresh cream taken off top of fresh milk. I use Carnation for a number of things, but never pudding, but will use nothing else now.

    Reg milk verses Carnation

    R Raugust from Hemet, CA

    My nephews and I made pudding one with regular milk and one with Carnation. We agreed, we liked the one with the carnation better. It was more creamyer with the carnation milk. We still ate the one with regular milk too.

  •  Star(s)

    A great snack


    I like the idea of using low fat milk as a substitute makes dieting a lot more fun and I can still have my chocolate treat.

    So good Chocolate Pudding

    betty brooks from Manchester, TN

    I have a 2 year old grandson who quit drinking milk when he came off the bottle. He would touch no milk products, that is until I started making pudding with Carnation Evap. Milk. I use Carnation Evap. Milk in all my recipes, probably more than I use regular milk.

    Quick & Creamy Pudding

    PAMELA REYNOLDS from Port Athur, TX

    For a after meal treat I fixed the Quick & Creamy Pudding. I also topped it with whipped topping. My family really did enjoy it. The grandkid's were so excited about me letting them have seconds. I also put cherries on top of the whipped cream. This is a very good recipe and the Carnation milk makes it so rich and creamy.

    Evaporated Fat free milk

    Deborah Himes from Columbiana, OH

    I have used the Carnation evap. fat free milk with the cooked sugar free, fat free pudding. It worked very well. Kids couldn't tell the difference between whole milk and reg. pudding.

    pudding pie

    carmelita bruen from surprise, AZ

    I just started to use Carnation evapoated milk about 2and half weeks ago. My first recipe I ever tried it on was with chocolate frosting. I read I got the recipe out of family circle and from there on I switch out all my milk with evaporated milk. I wanted to try out the quick and creamy pudding recipe. I will forever keep doing it. My husbands mom was suprised as well as my husband before this I always tried to come up with my own pudding pie and I found it.

    I just made pudding with the evaporated milk for the first time and my family loved it. I will never use bottled milk again for this. There was such a difference in the taste and the text so smooth.

    Quick & Creamy Pudding

    KIMBERLY AGREN from Virginia Beach, VA

    I tried this recipe for the first time two days ago, and the taste was amazing. This has got to be the creamiest pudding recipe ever. I Loved it!! I will never go back to just adding regular milk again. As a young child I watch my Grandfather use Carnation Evaporated Milk as a creamer in his coffee and tea instead of regular milk, of course I followed in his foot steps and always have a ample supply of Carnations Evaporated Milk in my pantry.

    Evaporated milk makes the instant pudding so much better than with regular milk. Evaporated milk with cooked boxed pudding is also great.

    Using Carnation Milk

    Patricia Wilken from ORLAND HILLS, IL

    I never thought to use Carnation milk in place of regular until I read the recipe. I did not have enough "regular" milk and knew I could use Carnation milk and I'm so glad I tried! I recommend using it in place of regular milk in all recipes. I will use this recipe again and again!
