  1. Step 1

    Gather all of your ingredients. (Puddings cook quickly, so it's best to have everything you need measured and at hand.) You will also need a small saucepan and a wooden spoon or wire whisk for stirring.
  2. Step 2

    In a small saucepan off the heat, combine the cornstarch, sugar, and salt until well mixed. Add 1/4 cup of almond milk (or another dairy-free milk alternative) and place the saucepan over medium-low heat, mixing well to dissolve the cornstarch and sugar.
  3. Step 3

    Add the remaining two cups almond milk, stirring constantly until mixture thickens for about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in the soy margarine and vanilla until completely incorporated. Transfer pudding to a heatproof dish, place plastic wrap directly on the surface of the pudding (this will prevent a skin from forming) and chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving. Serve cold.
