Homemade Vanilla Cream Pudding

Homemade Vanilla Cream Pudding

This is a fairly healthy option for dessert when made with either palm sugar (this is the best option) or maple syrup. You could actually substitute a little stevia for some of the sugar and it would even be better. Of course the eggs are a great source of protein and the whole milk and butter provide healthy fat. Anyway, it is a heavenly dessert. If you've only eaten those powdered pudding mixes with chemical flavors, you will be quite delighted when this pudding lights on your taste buds for the first time.

3/4 cup palm sugar or 2/3 cup pure organic maple syrup
3 tablespoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch or 1 teaspoon glucomannan
1/4 teaspoon real sea salt or Redmond's Real Salt
3 cups whole milk (non-homogenized)
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions: Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Gradually stir at least half of hot mixture into egg yolks. Then blend into hot mixture in saucepan. Boil 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Blend in butter and vanilla. Pour immediately into single serving dishes. Let cool. Serve by itself or with a little whipped cream on top.  

Chocolate Pudding: Make above recipe, except increase palm sugar to 1 3/4 cups and add ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa, stirred into sugar, arrowroot powder (or cornstarch) and salt, then proceed with recipe as instructed.

Jesus Christ has been my Savior since 1975. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 48 of those years. We have five grown children, with children of their own. Of course, that means that we have grandchildren - ten to be exact, and nine great-grandchildren with another one on the way. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
