Serves: 2 ½ cups
Cups of Fruits & Vegetables per Serving:
Think Variety; Think Color: Yellow/Orange


2 egg yolks

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 cup 2% milk

½ cup heavy cream

¼ cup sugar

2 tablespoon dark chocolate chips

1 tablespoon cocoa

1 tablespoon Valencia orange zest

1 teaspoon Valencia orange juice


In a small bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and cornstarch.


In a medium sauce pan, heat the milk, cream, and sugar over medium-low heat. Heat, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes, just until the top of the milk slightly begins to bubble and foam. Remove from the heat.


Temper the egg yolks by pouring ¼ cup of the warm milk into the eggs and cornstarch, whisking constantly. Add another ½ cup of the milk as you continue to whisk.


Pour the tempered egg yolks back into the saucepan with the remaining milk. Heat on medium-low, stirring constantly, until the pudding begins to thicken, about 4 to 5 minutes.


Remove the pan from heat, and stir in the chocolate chips, orange zest, and orange juice. Stir or whisk until the pudding is smooth


Strain the pudding through a fine mesh sieve to remove any solids. The pudding is ready to refrigerate or serve.
