Sweet Delicata Squash Pudding

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Vanilla Almond Milk

  • 1 cup coconut milk (shake can before opening)

  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 tablespoons agar agar flakes

  • Pinch of sea salt

  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

  • 1-3/4 cups delicata squash puree*


Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine milks, ginger, spices, agar agar, and salt.

  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring often, until mixture starts to thicken.

  3. Strain mixture into a large bowl and, using a large whisk, mix in maple syrup, vanilla, and squash puree. Whisk until very smooth.

  4. Pour pudding into dessert bowls and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or overnight until pudding sets up.


*For squash puree: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place 2 delicata squash on a baking sheet and prick all over with a fork. Cook for 30 minutes or until squash is very soft when squeezed. Let cool until cool enough to handle. Use a sharp knife to cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out (and discard) the seeds and stringy membranes. Use a large spoon to scoop squash flesh into a food processor and puree.
