Paleo Vanilla Pudding
Have you looked at some of the ingredients in store bough pudding? For such a simple delicious treat, they sure have figured out how to really botch it up and make it awful for you.
Plus if you have difficulty tolerating cow’s milk like I do (yes even raw), then making your own is really your best bet. Plus when you see how easy it is, why wouldn’t you? Now you can eat our heart out and know that this flax milk pudding is also full of nutrients! Ingredients:
- 2 cups flax milk (or other nondairy option)
- 2 tablespoons tapioca starch
- 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
- 4 tablespoons organic maple sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon paleo/vegan butter, ghee, or grassfed butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- combine tapioca starch, maple sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan
- slowly drizzle 1/4 cup of the milk while whisking constantly
- now whisk in egg yolks and the rest of the flax milk
- turn on medium heat and whisk often
- when it starts to bubble reduce heat and use rubber spatula to pull pudding away from sides
- continue to stir constantly and scrape sides for about 5 more minutes
- remove from heat, add vanilla and butter and incorporate well
- if lumpy you can give it a quick blend in a vitamix or blender
- divide into single servings and refrigerate a few hours to cool and set
- if desired, sprinkle nutmeg or cinnamon on top!
Finally!! A dairy free pudding worth eating! This is so good and I love the eggs for protein. I served it for breakfast with some soaked rice cooked in chicken broth. Yum! How do I make this chocolate? Just add a few Tbsps of cocoa powder? So happy I found your blog!
Cocoa powder should work or melt down a few soy/dairy free chocolate chips and stir them right in!!!

Do you think this would work well in a banana cream pie? Is it thick enough or is it on the runny side. The pics aren’t working to view the consistency.
It’s not runny but it may need a little extra starch!
