Coconut Pudding with Prunes
I am determined to make prunes sexy again.
They got a bad wrap for keeping grandma regular. Then they were renamed “dried plums” to give them a new public image. But whatever you call them, they deserve a comeback. How about bringing prunes back into your kitchen with this effortless and elegant dessert?
Coconut Pudding is simple to make, full of healthy fats from coconut milk and shredded coconut, and also makes a filling breakfast that you and grandma can enjoy.
A handful of prunes (about 5 to 6, depending on your hand size)
1/2 cup of coconut milk (full fat)
1/2 cup of finely shredded coconut
1 teaspoon of almond flour
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of cardamom
1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice
a few pumpkin seeds for garnish
Soak the prunes in coconut milk for half an hour.
Add in shredded coconut, almond flour, and spices and mix with a fork.
Add in lemon juice.
Garnish with pumpkin seeds.
If you are a fiber fiend you can also add 1/2 teaspoon of chia seeds and let it sit for an hour to thicken.
Let’s start the prune revolution!
