Silky Pitaya Custard Pudding (raw, gluten free, dairy free, egg free and sugar free)
Whether you’re hosting an elegant dinner party or simply seeking the perfect summer dessert, this easy recipe will delight the taste buds and enchant the eyes with its rich magenta color. The secret ingredient is Pitaya (Dragon) fruit - a super-fruit prized in many cultures for hundreds of years.
1 cup organic Dragon Fruit pulp
1 organic fresh young coconut meat*
(preserve the organic coconut water)
1 inch organic vanilla bean
2 organic cardamom pods, seeds removed and crushed to a fine powder
1/2 teaspoon organic lemon zest
organic Kal stevia to taste
Blend everything in a high speed blender (like Viftamix) for five minutes or until everything becomes very silky and smooth. Add some of the coconut water if necessary.
Serve in a nice glass or crystal bowl. The pudding can be layered into trifles, topped with fresh berries or enjoyed on its own.
