Blend up a butterscotch pudding in just five minutes for a quick and creamy dessert, via PaleoHacks.
Love caramel and butterscotch flavors? Try this Paleo-friendly pudding recipe made with all natural and wholesome ingredients. Not only is it spoon-licking good, but you can easily whip up a batch in just five minutes!
Replace traditional dairy ingredients with coconut milk and coconut cream to keep things easy on your tummy. Coconut sugar adds a decadent sweetness that's perfect for creating that signature butterscotch flavor. Note: Maple syrup or honey will not work as a substitute for coconut sugar, since it does not add the same flavor or consistency.
To get started, simmer all ingredients together in a pot for 2-3 minutes. Don't skip this step since it's required to thicken the pudding. The ghee will create a smooth, buttery taste while adding a bit of fluffy texture. Once the pudding is heated to perfection, transfer it to a high-speed blender (or immersion blender) and blend for 30 seconds or until smooth in texture.
The best way to enjoy this pudding is to transfer it to mini glass jars (for single servings), chill for a minimum of 30 minutes, and serve with a spoon. Top it with your favorite nuts, seeds, dried fruit, coconut shreds, and more!
