Ingredients in Almond Milk Pudding
It's silky smooth and packed full of almond flavor. Instead of using regular milk, I used almondmilk. With the help of half of a teaspoon of almond extract and the Almond Breeze almondmilk, I'm happy to announce that the almond flavor definitely shows up to the party!
So, I toasted up some sliced almonds which only took about five minutes. I did that to add a pop of color to the photo and I wanted to sprinkle some on the top of my pudding. I know that the hubby and Lucian wouldn't be crazy for the addition so I didn't go too wild with them in the pudding cups. It's a nice crunchy addition if you're like me and love to add a slight crunch to anything with a smooth texture.
- 3 cups Almond Breeze almondmilk
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
- 3 T. cornstarch
- ¼ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. almond extract
- 2 T. cold butter
- In a large saucepan, add in the almondmilk and place over medium/high heat. Let it heat up until the edges form bubbles it almost boils. This took mine about 14 minutes.
- While the almondmilk is heating, add the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, add in the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Whisk to incorporate the cornstarch into the sugar.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the egg yolks and stir to combine.
- Once the almondmilk heats up, pour about 1 cup of it into the yolks and sugar. Whisk immediately until combined. This will temper the yolks and prevent the eggs from cooking when they're added to the remaining milk.
- Add the yolk mixture into the saucepan with the remaining almondmilk and whisk to combine.
- Let the mixture come up to a boil and begin bubbles and whisk constantly to prevent burning. It took mine 5 minutes to begin bubbling.
- Once bubbling, whisk quickly until the mixture becomes thick. This took 9 more minutes for me.
- Add in the almond extract and cold butter and whisk until butter is combined.
- Place a fine mesh strainer over a glass bowl, pour the pudding through the strainer to catch any bits of egg.
- Cover the pudding with plastic wrap. Place the plastic on top of the pudding to prevent a skin from forming. Let sit overnight to firm up.
- Spoon the pudding into dishes and serve!
What's your favorite pudding? Mine is chocolate because I love everything chocolate. Don't tell anyone but I love the fat free generic store bought pudding because it almost has a gritty texture. Weird, I know.
