Any other milk should do the trick. What is the recipe?

Any other milk will do, 1%, 2%, whole milk.

Looks like you're making a small amount of chocolate pudding. Is this part of a published recipe? No change would be necessary because of the change in the type of milk.

I'd consider adding a pinch of salt.

AGreed on the soy milk. But really, you can substitute any other kind of milk and nothing else changes.

It will only be better with whole milk. Measurements are unchanged.

Absolutely.

If it calls for white water, subbing in actual milk will improve, not detract, at 1:1
