Servings: 3



  • 2-3 Apples sweeter the better; need cooked wieght of 170 grams
  • 1/3 Cup Milk of choice
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 Cup Coconut Cream thickened part of opened can of cream/milk which has been in the fridge overnight



  • Peel the apples and cut into chuncks. Place the apple chunks in a saucepan and cover with water.
  • Bring the water to the boil and simmer for 8 minutes, or until apples are soft (time will vary from 5-10 minutes). Strain the apples.
  • Place the softned apple pieces in a blender and process until a purree forms.Allow the apple puree to cool before using.
  • Place 170 grams of apple puree, milk, egg yolks, maple syrup and vanilla in a saucepan and stir until combined.
  • Turn heat onto medium and cook until the mixture almost reaches boiling point (i.e. little bubbles start to form and it will get really thick). The custard will want to stick to the bottom of the saucepan so stir constantly.
  • Take the custard off the heat and stir in the cream until combined.
  • Using a hand blender, blend the custard whilst in the saucepan until no lumps remain and it is silky smooth. Alternatively, place the custard into a kitchen blender and blend until no lumps remain.
  • Eat warm or cold (the custard needs to be refrigerated).
