|Prep time||15 minutes|
Spicy creamy pudding
|1⁄2||ct||instant vanilla pudding mix|
|2||T||chai drink mix|
We used Trader Joe's all natural instant pudding mix (see here: http://blog.trailcooking.com/2009/09/11/trail-pudding-pies/ ), feel free to use whatever brand you prefer. You will want 1/2 of a 4 serving box, usually around 3 to 4 ounces in size.
We used un-crystallized candied ginger, another Trader Joe's find. You can of course use any version. Candied ginger is expensive if you buy it in the spice aisle, look with the dried fruit or in bulk sections of spices to get it cheaply!
For the chai mix we used http://www.bigtrain.com/ version. If you like it less spicy/sweet cut it back to 1 Tbsp mix.
Note: On the serving size - this serves 1 to 2 people.
Dice the ginger up finely. Add it, the pudding mix and dry milk to a pint freezer bag or sandwich bag.
Add a shy 1 cup cold water, seal tightly and shake for a couple minutes. Find a cold creek or snowbank to stash the pudding in. Let sit for 10 minutes or longer to finish setting up.
Top with more ginger and cinnamon if desired.
