I wonder if I could use Almond milk instead of rice milk, ?? just dyeing to give this a try, it sounds so very good.....And I do appreciate the dietitians that work so very hard for all of us that with out them,, all of us suffering with kidney failure would not be able to enjoy so many things we love and it is hard enough dealing with this, so please just let me say thank you, truly we do appreciate all of you..... :)....Thank's. Dietitian comment: Thank you! I have not tried the almond milk but think it will work. Some milk substitutes prevent the pudding from setting so it will be an experiment if you make the change.

We recently found out my husband has stage 4 ckd. When I found this website I was thrilled. All the recipes I have tried have been great. This desert is fantastic, especially if you are wanting bananas and can't eat them. I was afraid to try it because of some of the comments. I had no problem at all it is delicious. The pudding thickened just like it was supposed to. I will continue to make this. Love it!

I very recently found this website because my husband just started dialysis. He loves this recipe! I've made it several times and the whole family loves it. The first time it was a little runny but all the other times it turned out great. Every time it tasted great though. We have tried several recipes on your site and I'm very happy with the results! This is our favorite though. Thank you!

I made this recipe and it turned out pretty well. I was a little skeptical because of the previous comments. But it turned out good. My boyfriend loved it and he doesn't really like pudding much.

I called the company that makes rice dream rice milk to ask if pudding of any kind, jello or home made can be made with rice milk and was told that rice milk lacks the enzyms found in dairy milk and it is those enzyms that cause the pudding to thicken in others words it wont work well if at all

Was this recipe tested before it was posted? Because this one is a mess! I used every ingredient exactly as stated and couldn't get the pudding to thicken with the rice milk. The vanilla wafers were floating in the pudding. Maybe it would have worked better with non-dairy creamer. Don't waste the ingredients on this one. Moderator comment: Our dietitians who submit the recipes do kitchen test them. I went to my own kitchen with this one and made 4 versions--2 instant pudding with rice milk or nondairy creamer and 2 stovetop cooked pudding mix with rice milk or nondairy creamer. It took longer than 1 hour for the instant pudding (it wasn't set at all after 1 hour)to set but by the next day all 4 versions had a pudding-like consistency. Taste-wise though the cooked pudding mix was superior to the instant. I have revised this recipe to reflect the best version from my kitchen testing.
