Rich and creamy, with an excellent, almost butterscotch-like flavor. Fairly healthy for a sweet treat. I make it gluten- and refined sugar-free, sweetening with coconut sugar.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix almond milk, egg yolks, coconut sugar, cornstarch, and salt together in a large saucepan and, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Cook and stir almond milk mixture until it thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir shredded coconut, butter, and vanilla extract into milk mixture. Remove saucepan from heat and allow pudding to cool to room temperature.

  • Divide sliced bananas between 8 serving bowls and pour pudding over top.

Cook's Notes:

If after cooking this pudding does not thicken to your liking, there's an easy fix. Simply stir in about 1/2 cup chia seeds. It will thicken fast, and continue to the longer it sits in the

Margarine can be substituted for butter if desired.

Try topping pudding with nutmeg, toasted coconut, crumbled graham crackers, or a non-dairy topping.

If desired, you can crumble graham crackers in bowls before serving.

Normally I wouldn't review my own dish but I see where the "notes" got cut off here some. I would like to mention a couple things cutting recipe in half is easy of course preferred first time possibly. Pretty much 1 egg per 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk. I find using a bit more corn starch insures the desired thickness. Some like sweeter so you can add a bit more coconut sugar also when cooking. Also if you feel to thin a pudding add a bit of CHIA seed to thicken. Remember it continues to thicken as it sets. So very little would be needed like 1 Tablespoon or less. Read More
