What Is Custard?

According to Collins dictionary, custard is a baked dessert made of milk, eggs, and sugar.

Custard comes in a variety of flavors, but pumpkin seems fitting this time of the year.

Pumpkin Custard Is Sugar Free

Since the main ingredients in a custard are milk, sugar and eggs, we need to make a few changes to make this recipe Trim Healthy Mama-friendly!

Using a low carb sweetener, such as Swerve or Monkfruit, can take the place of white sugar in this recipe.

Can I Make Dairy Free Custard?

To make this recipe dairy free, simply switch out the heavy cream and use coconut cream.

You could also take a can of coconut milk and put it in your fridge overnight.  

Then just scoop out the hardened cream from the can.




Should I Use Canned Or Fresh Pumpkin Puree For This Custard Recipe?

Either one will be fine.

I have fresh pumpkin puree in my freezer, but chose to use canned pumpkin this time!

What Can I Do With Leftover Canned Pumpkin?

You can freeze leftover pumpkin puree in Tablespoon portions using an ice cube tray.

Several pumpkin spice latte recipes or smoothies call for a couple Tablespoons of pumpkin, so this works perfectly!
