Lemon Dream Pudding

High-protein, low sugar – maximum deliciousness!

This is my twist on my Grandma’s Sunday lunch staple “Golden Jelly” dessert.


Step 1:  Lemony Custard

  • ½ cup lemon juice *
  • 1 ½ cups coconut milk **
  • 2 sugar free maple syrup (or regular)
  • 1 Tablespoon corn flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. Mix lemon juice and ½ cup of coconut cream with the corn flour, rice malt syrup, egg yolks and vanilla.
  2. Bring the remaining coconut milk (1 cup) to the boil in a small saucepan.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the yolk mixture.
  4. Cook gently for 2-3 mins (stirring to avoid curdling).
  5. Take off the heat and allow to cool.

* If you’d prefer just a vanilla custard (which is just as yummy), just replace the 1/2 cup of lemon juice with another 1/2 cup coconut milk.

** You can use regular milk if you prefer and if dairy agrees with you

Step 2:  Marshmallow Cloud

  • 1 tablespoon gelatine
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons rice malt syrup (maple or honey works too)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  1. img_20170113_102726Soak Gelatine in 1 Tablespoon cold water and set aside
  2. Heat the syrup in a small saucepan until bubbling. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatine and vanilla.
  3. Beat egg whites stiffly and pour in the syrup until mixed well (mix on a slower speed while adding syrup – try to keep it moving through or gelatine mixture will solidify and form lumps).
  1. Pour marshmallow into one serving bowl or several smaller ramekins/bowls
  2. Refrigerate until firm.
  3. Once the marshmallow is set, top with custard and chill or … dig in!


Optional: Top with whipped cream and dark chocolate or berries!
