VEGAN CUSTARD

Try this delicious custard rich in protein, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamin B6 and calcium. No one will know its vegan!

  

INGREDIENTS

500ml of soy or almond milk  

3 tbsp coconut sugar or rapadura ( important to give the custard a good colour)

Heat the milk and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Dont let it boil.  Mix the polenta with a little cold water to make a paste and add gradually to the milk mixture stirring constantly until it thickens. Finally add the vanilla.

  

NOTE: Unless you grind the polenta well the custard will be a bit grainy. 

  

I accidentally poured in too much coconut sugar a few weeks ago and everyone said it was the best ever custard!

Once the pudding has set put the berries, water and sweetener into a saucepan. Cover and cook over a low heat until the berries are soft but still retain their shape.   

  

NOTES

For breakfast mix the berries in with the chia and milk etc and use less sweetener. Make a large batch and be organised for the whole week!
