There are so many ways to serve this pudding. In fact, you can even use it as a dip for cookies or pretzels. Chocolate cookies pair nicely with this peanut butter pudding. Alright, well, enough about that. Let’s get started on whipping and mixing this pudding. I am sure you will be happy to know that only four ingredients are needed to whip up this treat. The ingredients that you need to make this Peanut Butter Pudding are 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, 1 ¾ cup of cold milk, 3.4 ounces of instant vanilla pudding, and ¼ cup of whipped cream.

That’s it! Just four ingredients come together to create this masterpiece. Now, although this is called Peanut Butter Pudding, it is not overwhelmingly flavored with peanut butter. The vanilla instant pudding helps to mellow out the peanut butter taste. So, don’t worry! You won’t be overwhelmed by the taste of peanut butter. This recipe is a beautiful combination of just the right ingredients.

To make this Peanut Butter Pudding, first, grab out a medium-sized bowl. Then, mix together the peanut butter and cold milk until they are well combined. Next, add instant vanilla pudding (you will see it thicken up immediately) and whipped cream. Mix it well to get it nicely combined. And, that’s it! Then, you can finally enjoy your Peanut Butter Pudding! It’s as easy as… well, pudding! Serve this and Enjoy!

Come to think of it, this would actually make a delicious peanut butter pie filling. I have not tried that yet, but I just might try it. It would be good as pie filling inside of a chocolate cookie crust.

Once you try this Peanut Butter Pudding, you will notice that you don’t need a huge bowl of it to feel satisfied. It is light and fluffy in texture but is hearty in its flavor. Hopefully, you enjoy whipping up this pudding and dipping whatever cookies, pretzels, or snacks that you like to dip into it. Happy Mixing, Whipping, and Eating!
