Coconut Custard (Dairy-Free, Low-Carb and Gluten-Free)

ramiken custard2

This is one of my go-to desserts for Shabbat Suppers. It’s is quick, easy and accommodates most diets…especially those emphasizing fewer carbs. And because it is parve and dairy-free it’s a good dessert for a meat meal. This diary free coconut custard comes together vert quickly, cooks in about 45 minutes and even allowing for a couple of hours to chill, can be prepared the same day as you intend to serve it. Enjoy!

Serve with fresh fruit. Strawberries or Mandarin Orange slices are especially nice.
