Tummy Pleasing Maple-Pumpkin Custard

We all love a little dessert sometimes. But for those who are sensitive to wheat, dairy, or sugar, dessert leaves much to be desired. For others, most desserts are unfortunately loaded with inflammatory sugars, fats, and creams which can leave you feeling bloated with guilt. So how can you have your sweets without re-toxing your body?

Check out this recipe for Maple Pumpkin Custard. A great treat for the autumn season, it is loaded with beneficial ingredients that won’t have your body screaming at you out of guilt.

Sweet Potato Soup with Ginger & Coconut

7 Alternatives to Conventional Milk

The main ingredient is pure canned coconut milk (like Native Forest Organic’s BPA-free cans), which is not only loaded with good, healthy fats that support body function, but is a delicious delicious dairy alternative that will make you feel great. Paired with the other ingredients in this recipe, it works to help your body maintain health and balance. Don’t believe me? Check out the benefits:

Cinnamon promotes healthy blood sugar balance.

Eggs provide thickening and protein.

Pumpkin offers fiber, which helps with blood sugar and weight loss, and skin brightening vitamin A.

Nutmeg can relieve stress and anxiety.

Clove is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial spice.
