Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 2 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole milk, divided
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) chocolate instant pudding mix


  • Large Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Step 1

    In a large mixing bowl, pour 2 cups of whole milk. Add the chocolate pudding mix into the milk. Lightly whisk the mixture using a wire whisk until dissolved, approximately one minute. Do not over-mix or the mixture will thicken and not be easy to pour.

  • Step 2

    Pour the mixture into two standard ice cube trays, equally distributing between the two. 

  • Step 3

    Place the ice cube trays in the freezer and freeze for eight hours or overnight. 

  • Step 4

    In a Ninja® 60-ounce Food Processor Bowl fitted with the standard blade attachment, add the frozen chocolate ice cubes. Add the remaining 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of whole milk. Using the crush function, process for 35 to 40 seconds. 

  • Step 5

    Remove the lid, carefully remove the blades, and serve.
