Cook time: 15 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: ½ cup
2½ cups unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg white
⅓ cup sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
cinnamon, to taste
nutmeg, to taste
light whipped topping
*Optional ingredients are not included in nutrition calculations.
Heat a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the almond milk and vanilla, and heat until it almost simmers (do not bring to a boil.).
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg white, sugar, and cornstarch until frothy.
Temper the eggs into the heated almond milk. To do this, add about ¼ cup of the almond milk to the egg mixture, whisking quickly. Add another ¼ cup, and whisk again. Tempering allows both liquids to come to the same temperature before combining them, so the eggs do not curdle.
Add the cooled-down egg mixture to the almond milk, and whisk to combine. Stir frequently until it begins to thicken, about 6-8 minutes.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste.
Serve warm or chilled and top with optional whipped topping as desired.
