Coconut milk is a great substitute.  Basic recipe is 1 egg yolk for every cup coconut milk.  Scald milk and pour into beaten yolks. Add a pinch of salt, stevia to taste, vanilla and cocoa powder. Mix well and bake at 350 until set.  You can also cook on the stove top until it sets up enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.

I guess this isn't really a custard but a pudding.  We love it with some fresh mixed berries on top!  So good! 

 

1 avacodo

cocoa powder to taste

honey to taste

1 ripe banana

small splash of vanilla

 

Use a food processor to mix everything and eat immedietly.  Yum!

In something like custard or pudding, coconut milk can be used instead of milk in your favorite recipe without any alterations. There are few places the substitution doesnt work well... Anywhere that involves culturing or whipping (as in whipped cream).

Chocolate "Custard" (Fast Recipe)

 

Melt one bag of dark chocolate chips (check the label to make sure they are DF) in a double boiler.

Place one container of silken tofu (cut into 1" chunks) in a blender and blend until smooth. Slowly pour melted chocolate over the top and blend until incorporated. Add 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract and blend until smooth.

 

Serve with fresh berries on top.

 

 

Traditional Baked Custard

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Mix 1/4 cup Coconut Milk with 2 Tablespoons of Custard Powder (like Bird's) and set aside. You can also use arrowroot.

In a saucepan, add 1 3/4 Coconut Milk - bring to boil over medium heat, as soon as it starts to boil, remove from heat.

Stir in the Coconut/Custard mixture that you had set aside, along with 3 ounces of shaved bittersweet chocolate and 3/4 cup natural sugar.

Return to heat (low) and stir until it thickens. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tsp. vanilla.

 

Divide custard into individual custard cups and place in a deep baking pan. Fill pan with hot water to just 1/2 way up the side of the cups and bake 30 minutes or until set.

I make two things, cold creamy or baked.

 

for me, I like 1 banana, 1 avacado, a little honey, a few dates, one ounce chopped chocolate bar (good 72% at least), pinch cinnamon/vanilla, about 1/4 cup coconut milk. Into the blender.  I love banana anything but you can leave it out.  I have a vitamix so it takes care of the solid chocolate, but you could melt it if you don't have a great blender.  It stays t hick in the fridge from the dates and chocolate bar. 

 

For the kids i just use any custard recipe and use coconut milk or other milk instead of dairy.
