This will prevent the pudding from turning soupy in texture. Ideally, the pudding should set up very soon after removed from the stove even without putting it in the fridge. Adding cornstarch to pudding can also help in getting the rich, thick texture. If you’re lactose intolerant, try substituting the regular milk either with coconut or almond milk.
