Homemade Vanilla Dirt Pudding

Thursday’s have seemed to turn into my baking days. I try to usually bake something once a week and lately it has always been on a Thursday. Do you have a certain day you bake on or just whenever you get the urge?

Lately, we have been trying to be healthier, healthier snacks and treats with less sugar than normal. So I decided I wanted to make my own Vanilla pudding and whipped cream so I can control how much sugar would be added, but also homemade is just so much better! I cut back some sugar, but it is a dessert after all and what is a dessert without sugar.

For the Vanilla Pudding you will need: 

  • 1 block cream cheese 8oz
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 4tbsp softened butter (1/4) cup

In a mixer cream together the cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Then let it sit

On the stovetop bring to a boil: 

  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1tsp. Vanilla

Constantly stirring, once well combined and brought to a boil, remove from heat and let the mixture cool.

For the Whipped cream you will need:

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar

Add all ingredients to a mixer and beat until your desired consistency.

Once the Vanilla pudding mixture has cooled combine it with the Cream Cheese mixture. Then stir in the whipped cream with a spatula. Put the mixture into little bowls to serve then top with crushed Oreos! 

This is a fun treat that many kids have already come to love. I hope you enjoy it! If you decide to make this recipe we would love to see it! Tag us in your posts on Instagram @livesweet and use the hashtag #livesweetrecipes for a chance to be featured in our stories!
