Mint-Chocolate Chip Pudding

Soy milk serves as the base for this creamy treat that can be whipped up in no time.

The soy milk used in this recipe is the type most commonly found in supermarkets, and is slightly sweetened with malted corn and barley extract. If you use a completely unsweetened soy milk (such as the type often found in Chinese markets), increase the brown sugar to taste.
