Almond Milk Custard is a Healthy Paleo Dessert made Sweet with Honey

You’ll notice the words “simple” and “easy” a lot on Go Dairy Free, because that’s how we roll. I don’t believe good dairy-free food should be complicated or overly time consuming, and this almond milk custard is proof. It’s made with four basic ingredients for a sweet that’s not only delicious, but downright wholesome. We originally shared this recipe in 2007, but are giving the post an update!

Almond Milk Custard is a Healthy Paleo Dessert made Sweet with Honey

We originally shared this sample recipe from Sandra Ramacher’s book Healing Foods: Cooking for Celiacs, Colitis, Crohn’s and IBS back when it was first published. She has since released a second edition, so I’m updating this post, and the recipe. Her book is based on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, and there are some recipes that use dairy. But most are either dairy-free, like this almond milk custard, or the dairy is optional.

Sandra doesn’t add any salt to her almond milk custard, but we like to add a pinch. It’s up to you – I just think it helps bring the flavors together. But allowing the custard to chill in the refrigerator for a few hours also helps everything meld. Top it with fresh fruit to make the whole dessert pop!

Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 cups dairy-free almond milk
  • 5 eggs
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup raisins (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 300°F. Place 6 single-serve ramekins in a baking dish, and fill the baking dish with water reaching half way up the outside of the ramekins.
  2. In a medium pot, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, honey, and vanilla. Place over medium heat and cook for 1 minute, whisking, but do not boil.
  3. Remove from the heat and evenly divide the mixture between the ramekins.
  4. Carefully transfer the baking dish to your oven (you don't want to spill any water!), and bake for 45 minutes, or until the tops of the custards start to feel firm.
  5. Remove from the oven and place the custards into the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before serving.
