Whole Egg Almond Milk Custard (paleo, low FODMAP)

Print

This custard is my most popular recipe. It tastes like “real” custard but is 100% dairy and refined sugar free! Perfect for people with lactose intolerance, fructose malabsorption and those following a paleo diet.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Simple dessert recipes make everyone happy and this recipe not only will curb your sweet tooth but it will also provide protein to balance out the sugar and carbohydrate load. I would recommend making sure the almond milk is unsweetened as that is a way that sugar can sneak it’s way into your diet. If you are trying to stay away from any added sugar at all, a dash of vanilla and stevia would be a sweet substitute here.

    I just made this… I might have not used enough sugar, it also took on a texture I didn’t like, I think it was the almond milk. I make custard all the time and always have smooth results… My almond milk was made from powder… might that be it. The egg didn’t cook, Also the vanilla taste didn’t come through enough… Nevertheless, I am undeterred and will try again.

    I remember mom used to make the original recipe, she doubled hers & then would put it in small dishes & put it in the fridge for a few hrs. to thicken it. But she would always sprinkle it with nutmeg to spice it up a bit. It was always so good tho. But this recipe sounds really good too. When I make mine, I will put it in the fridge to see if it helps with thickening. Like I mentioned I think that cooling it that way helps out with the thickening.
    Thanks for the recipe. Cannot wait to try it.

    I used coconut milk instead of almond because thats all I had in the house and it tasted good, just wasn’t as creamy, I think if I were to do it again I would use a can of full fat coconut milk rather than the milk container style coconut milk

    I’m just wondering… do you think flavored Almond Milk would work here? I’m guessing Vanilla Almond Milk probably wouldn’t be as vanilla-y as an actual vanilla bean, though.
