Vegan custard

Sometimes the veganized version of a well known food just isn’t good. But other times you strike gold, like with this vegan custard! It was adapted from a recipe found on good old Pinterest and it worked a treat…which is what it is! Try it with fresh fruit such as blueberries and bananas, or over your fave ice cream. It’s in the regular rotation over here! Print

  4. When the custard begins to thicken (approximately 4-5 mins), lower heat and continue to stir until it’s at your desired consistency. I like it thick!
