Move over chocolate and vanilla pudding, there’s a new flavour in town! That’s right, gingerbread pudding… ok minus the bread but the tasty flavours of a gingerbread cookie are all up in this pudding recipe!
It all started with a craving for something warm and cinnamony. Like many other winter-holiday flavour loving folk, I’m a sucker for pumpkin spice, all spice, cinnamon spice, apple spice, anything spice! The downside, a ton of store bought spiced flavoured treats are loaded with refined sugars and preservatives (yuk!). So why deprive myself when I can make a healthy, tasty, spice-flavoured treat at home?!
If you love spiced flavoured treats and enjoy ginger snaps/cookies, you’ll absolutely fall in love with this gingerbread pudding recipe. And yes, it took me less than ten minutes to make!
Here we go…
Caution: testing it to make sure it tastes good too many times will lead to an empty saucepan (#guiltyascharged).
Servings: 4 snack sized servings.
Prep Time: 2 minutes | Cook Time: 6-8 minutes
- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened organic almond milk or coconut milk
- 3 tbsp non-gmo corn starch
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground ginger or ¼ tsp freshly pressed ginger
- Tiny pinch of ground nutmeg, cloves, and sea salt
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp unrefined organic coconut oil
- 2 tbsp real-Canadian dark maple syrup
- Pour all dry ingredients to a small sauce pan, whisk to get lumps out.
- Add almond milk and set to medium-high heat and bring to boil.
- Turn down to a medium-low heat and whisk mixture continuously, breaking down any lumps formed by dry ingredients.
- Add in wet ingredients (maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil) and keep whisking.
- Mixture will start to thicken after about 5 minutes or so. It’s ready when pudding starts to form a layer on a spoon without being runny.
- Take off heat and pour immediately into small bowls. Serve warm.
Tip: Don’t let the pudding rest in the sauce pan or it’ll start to form a thick layer at the bottom as it continues to cook in the pans heat.
Note: It’ll continue to slightly thicken as it cools so try not to overcook.
Optional: Top with coconut whip cream and ginger snaps or gingerbread cookie crumbs for an extra special treat.
