Custard is a favourite accompaniment to dessert. This version is a gluten free and dairy free custard, but still as smooth and flavourful as the traditional version.
Making your own custard gives you the freedom to use quality ingredients, and use the type of sweetener, and the amount that is right for you and your family. For an easy dessert, whip up a batch of Hunter Gatherer Gourmet muffins and serve warm with custard.
Makes 2 cups
- 2 cups (500ml) almond milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 vanilla pod
- Stevia or your choice of sweetener
- 1 Tbsp tapioca flour/starch (add an extra ½ Tbsp if you like a thicker custard)
Putting It All Together
Add almond milk and vanilla pod to a saucepan.
Heat until almost boiling. Remove from heat, scrape seeds from vanilla pod and add to milk, remove seed pod.
Whisk eggs, sweetener and tapioca flour in a bowl.
Pour hot milk over the eggs while whisking.
Transfer back to the saucepan and heat until custard has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
Grate a little nutmeg over the top before serving.
