Normally I'm not a big fan of making paleo-copy food.. if I'm craving something, a fake really isn't going to satisfy me! I also really don't want to advocate using any dietary guidelines as the excuse to just eat whatever and as much you want.. (can't say I don't ever do it though..)
This lovely pudding isn't for either category however. Instead, it's the perfect finish for when you have guests and want to show them "healthy tastes great" or you're having dinner with a loved one and want to do something special. The best bit about it, is that it's very, very satisfying. You really won't feel like having a second helping.
Ingredients (for two);
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 or 4 spoonfull's almond flour
- 1 spoonfull maple syrup
- 1 small can coconutmilk
Start with combining the first 3 ingredients until you get a mixture like in the topleft photo. (At this point it won't look very tasty.) Heat it up in a small pan, medium heat. Stir it for a minute, and then add the coconutmilk. Turn the heat higher, let it go to a boil. Keep stirring to get all the lumps out. Once you're fairly certain you've tackled them all, turn down the heat and serve promptly. You really want to eat this while it's hot! :)
For a nice finishing touch, serve it with some berries. I chose cherries simply because they were around, but taste-wise i'm going to go for raspberries next time. Don't take my word for it though, as I would eat raspberries with everything. Anytime, anywhere.
I'm considering trying it with some vanilla next time, curious what that would do to the taste. Or perhaps lot's of cinnamon?
