  • Pudding required - urgently!

    HI .. I have 2 friends coming for dinner Saturday. Now, my partner and I don"t eat wheat or sugar. And one of our guests doesn't eat any dairy. My "go to" is fruit salad with cream. Can fruit salad be eaten without cream?

    Has anyone any ideas? If so -- many thanks!

    Coconut milk mousse. Coconut milk with cocoa powder (a bit of honey if you'd like) and topped with berries. Fruit salad is good without topping, however. I'm sure you could mix in other fruit with the coconut milk if you'd like. I wonder if blending a banana in the coconut milk would be tasty (now I want to go home and try it)..... I think there was a thread in here with the recipe (for the mousse).

        Ooh, raw deal, dude. Was just going to say fruit + devon cream is pretty much the voice of God.
        sub coconut milk, best bet I think.
        Sixtoes is on to something though. Have you tried paleo pudding using avocado, banana, and cocoa powder?

          How about chocolate avocado pudding? (It does involve honey - don't know if you include raw honey in your "no sugar" restriction)

          (BTW, I've made the pudding with plain old unsweetened cocoa powder, so if you don't have the "natural raw cacao powder" it's a perfectly reasonable substitute).

            Banana icecream always blows people away, and you can make it in advance provided you take it out of the freezer to defrost for at least 15 minutes before serving.

              Banana in avocado pudding?! Thank you!! I love avocado pudding but adding banana sounds divine.

                Do you have a recipe for this? It sounds good!

                  Thanks for the link - this look VERY hopeful! Can I add banana to this? Sliced, perhaps??

                    Of course! (Not sure what any of this has to do with pudding, though.)

                    Fruit salad is basically just different fruits cut into pieces and put into a bowl. No reason you can't eat it "as is".

                      I bet that would be good, or you could blend it up w/all the other ingedients. If you don't tell anyone there's avocado, they'll never even know!

                        I tried this custard recipe a few days ago and it was great! Caveman Custard

                        It turns out like a creme brulee texture. I made it as the original recipe states, but it wasn't super sweet. You could always add honey or a sweetener of choice to make it sweeter. Next time I'm going to skip the banana and add melted chocolate + honey to the mixture instead to make a chocolate custard. mmmmm This was SO good.

                          Pudding is so easy.

                          2 cups water
                          1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I love Hershey's Special Dark)
                          1/2 tsp xanthan gum
                          Stevia
                          Vanilla extract

                          Heat the water on the stove over medium heat, add in cocoa powder and whisk together. When mixture begins to simmer, add in xanthan gum and whisk vigorously until a pudding-like texture is achieved. Do not heat too quickly or you'll burn the cocoa. Allow mixture to cool, add stevia to taste (it usually takes 1-2 Tbsp of stevia powder to get the right taste) and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. Don't add the extract to the pudding until it has cooled or you'll diminish the flavor.

                          This goes great topped with heavy cream whipped with stevia and a shot of Kahlua topped with berries. You can also use coconut cream if you don't do dairy. IMO, a 50/50 mix of heavy cream and coconut cream is really where it's at!
                          Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                            'pudding' is a term for dessert in the UK. So it doesn't refer to the actual dish named pudding.

                            What about an apple and pear torte using an almond flour crust? topped with custard (using coconut milk instead of cream).

                            Or a molten chocolate cake Bannana and Chocolate cake (or pudding) ourpaleokitchen

                            Or carrot cake with coconut frosting: Carrot Cake with Coconut Frosting ourpaleokitchen

                              Now, that last one looks awesome! except that about 2 weeks ago I gave ALL of my baking tins to a girl I know who is just becoming a professional cook! I might be able to borrow them back...??!!
