  • Yields 6
    Servings
  • 15 minutes
    Prep time
  • 1 hour
    Total time

Ingredients

  • 1 medium size Butternut Squash, should make 2 cups
  • 1 14 oz. can Coconut Milk
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp. Fresh Minced Ginger
  • 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla
  • 1 Tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Sea Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Cut the squash lengthwise in half; remove seeds and place facing down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 1 hour, cool and scoop out the flesh. Should make 2 cups. Alternatively, you can use canned butternut squash, but I highly recommend using fresh squash, it makes the pudding creamier and tastier
  3. Place all ingredients into a food processor, and pulse until smooth
  4. Pour into a 1-½ quart well-greased baking dish and bake for 45 – 60 min, depending on the baking dish you use. I used a lovely copper saucepan, making the pudding taller instead of wider. Ultimately the pudding is ready when inserted toothpick in the middle comes out clean.
  5. Chill completely before serving. I recommend overnight, allowing the pudding to set
  6. Serve with coconut ice cream, whip cream, berries or just as is

Tips

For cooking time: for fresh squash 2 hours, for canned 1 hour

If you do not have a food processor, beat eggs first, mash the squash, and then add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth
