From Kristi's Kitchen
2/3 c. walnuts - divided in half
2 small to medium organic apples, cored and peeled (sweet or sour -your choice)
2 tbsp. organic unsalted butter, softened (optional)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar free vanilla
1 tsp. sea salt
14 oz. coconut milk
1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1/4 c. coconut nectar
1/4 tsp. toffee flavored liquid stevia + 5 drops
*The coconut nectar and toffee flavored stevia combined give it it's "caramel-ly" flavor -so good!
-Process 1/3 c. walnuts, 1 apple, butter, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, vanilla and salt in a food processer
-Add in coconut milk, xanthan gum, coconut nectar and 1/4 tsp. stevia and process until thick and creamy
-While mixture is processing dice up remaining apple and walnuts -toss with remaining lemon juice
-Empty pudding into a mixing bowl and fold in apples and walnuts
- Taste and add stevia to taste (I added 5 drops)
Let it set overnight for the flavors to marry and serve it up in festive glasses...
ADD INS: You could also add 1/2 c. crushed pineapple...chopped almonds or peanuts instead of walnuts... even chunks of Beyond Organic Dark Chocolate would be fabulous -think of it as a canvas...a splash of homemade vanilla whipped cream and a little garnish and you are good to go!
