Sweet Prune Fruit Pudding with Custard is Delicious

This prune fruit pudding made with the fruit compote is so delicious. What makes this pudding so special is being topped with the vegan custard. Also, what I really like about it is that there is no sugar added.

Yes, prunes will help you poop and they are a nutritious superfood. They are full of many amazing health benefits from helping with constipation to lowering blood pressure to even helping with weight loss.

When you eat cherries, you enjoy much more than just their amazing taste. They’re packed with antioxidants and offer many health benefits, including help with insomnia, joint pain and belly fat. Cherries could be just what the doctor ordered.

Almonds – Almonds are very tasty and so beneficial for our health. They are my favourite nut; most mornings I add 7 to 10 almonds to my breakfast.

Arrowroot and kudzu are high-quality starches that will add amazing texture and taste to your custards and puddings. I’m happy I discovered them in my macrobiotic (grain-based diet) days. I used to bake with cornstarch like most people — which is not a healthy ingredient. Find out more about Arrowroot for Gluten-Free and Vegan Recipes.
