I wished to create a wholesome, sugar-free, vegetable-based pudding, and got here up with this creamy, filling dessert made with yams. I do know that sounds gross, however it tastes like candy potato pie, however with rather a lot much less energy, little or no fats, no sugar, no butter and never one drop of oil. The sweetness comes from the yams, cinnamon, and a bit of little bit of monk fruit from the coconut milk. Be sure to make use of the model of coconut milk I urged under, as a result of it gained’t come out fairly proper with one other model (I attempted just a few). In the event you can’t discover that model, use a plain coconut milk and add a bit of little bit of your favourite sweetener. Regardless that the instructions make it seem a prolonged course of, it’s truly very easy and I simply used one bowl to stir and cook dinner all of the elements.
Spiced Yam Pudding
- 31 ounces of yams, peeled and cubed (about 2 yams)
- 2 cups water, filtered
- 2 teaspoons every of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, alcohol-free vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups toasted coconut almond milk mix by Califia Farms
Place the yams in a big microwavable glass bowl and add the two cups of water. Place bowl in microwave and canopy with a paper towel. Prepare dinner yams in microwave for 15 minutes. Place a sizzling pad on the counter. After the yams are cooked, use two sizzling pads to take away bowl from microwave (as a result of the bowl shall be extraordinarily sizzling) and place on counter to chill. After 5 minutes, take away paper towel from bowl, throw paper towel away, and permit the yams to chill down.
After 20 minutes, the yams and the bowl ought to be cool sufficient to deal with, if not, let it sit longer. Pour yams fastidiously right into a colander to take away as a lot water as attainable. Wipe out any water and moisture from the glass bowl. Let the yams sit within the colander 5-10 minutes to empty utterly. Put the yams again within the glass bowl, and add the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Mash with a potato masher. To ensure there aren’t any vegetable chunks, with a mixer, mix yams on low pace whereas including the coconut milk slowly. Whereas it might seem a bit watery, it’s going to thicken up. Place bowl within the fridge in a single day, coated with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, ensuring the wrap/foil doesn’t contact the pudding. You need the pudding to chill utterly to thicken up.
When the pudding is cool after being within the fridge at the least 12 hours, use a spoon and blend gently. Pour into 4-6 small bowls, prime with dairy-free whipped cream (non-compulsory, however a lot better with it), chopped pecans, and toasted coconut chips.
