I made this yesterday in a blender and pie plate! The eggs are a bit inflammatory but the pumpkin is high enough on the anti-inflammation side (IF ratings) it overrides it. It’s the closest thing to sweet I’ve had yet and my (can eat everything husband) loved it!
Optional: For a topping, I put coconut kefir, stevia and Xanthum Gum (1/2-1 tsp) depending on thickness, in a blender until whipped.

This Pumpkin Custard is not your typical pumpkin dessert…lighter in flavor than most pumpkin pie fillings, free of refined sugar and dairy, topped with a ‘sugar crust’ reminiscent of crème brulee… this recipe goes together easily yet is large enough to satisfy a crowd and gourmet enough to deserve a place on the communal table.March 10, 2014 at 8:45 pm #116670

sounds yummy but i’m afraid xanthan gum (is made from moulded corn), vanilla extract (has alcohol) which are big no nos. I’d imagine if you read the ingredients in your non dairy whipped cream and coconut Kefir (assuming store bought) you would find more xanthan gum and probably carageenan which are bad for candida sufferers. I’m sure your dessert is tasty and thanks for sharing but you may want to play with other ingredients like guar gum or arrow root.
