Prep time

A rich coconut custard that’s vegan, paleo, and made with whole30 compliant ingredients. With just a hint of orange and a creamy texture, you’ll never know this is vegan. It was good enough to bring my husband up to my office to tell me it was amazing! It stands up as a very fancy dessert or a great afternoon treat with a hot cup of tea.

  7. Pour into custard cups and chill. To speed things up, sometimes I put them in the freezer! It should take about 20-30 minutes in the freezer and about 45 minutes in the fridge.

  8. While the custard is chilling, place all strawberry glaze ingredients into a small sauce pan.

  11. I spend my free time exploring ways to make simple but very healthy treats that are paleo, vegan, whole30 compliant, and sweetened with fruit or just a touch of real maple syrup or honey.

Nutrition: Coconut milk is rich in antioxidants, vitamins C, E and B, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. Strawberries like any berries are nutritional power houses with lots of disease fighting characteristics.
