It's not a diet. It's a lifestyle change.

Paleo Banana Custard with Cinnamon-Date Caramel


Here I go bending the rules again… Making desserts during the Whole30 – I’ll behave after this. Maybe.

Whole30 Friendly Ingredients:
2 Eggs
2 Egg Whites
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (canned)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Boiling water

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, banana, vanilla and nutmeg.
In a saucepan, heat up coconut milk to a boil and then remove from stove.
Add coconut milk to the egg mixture, few spoons at a time. Whisk while you’re adding, and try not to add too much all at once otherwise it will cook the eggs.
Place 4 ramekins in a deep baking dish. Fill the mixture into the ramekins about two thirds full.
Bake for 30-35 min.

Remove from oven and wait for the ramekins to be cool enough to take out of the water. Spoon about 1 tbsp of the cinnamon-date caramel over top, let cool and refrigerate overnight.

Cinnamon Date “Caramel” Ingredients
*Tweaked recipe from PaleOMG
15 dates
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla

Soak dates in hot water for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes transfer just the dates to a small blender (magic bullet is great)
Add other ingredients and process until smooth and “caramel” color has been reached.

Refridgerate + enjoy with desserts, or on top of this custard!

    You said to soak the dates for 20 minutes, but then you say “after 15 minutes”. I don’t understand? Let it soak for 20 min then an additional 15 min?
