From our Paleo Desserts Collection we bring you this delicious chocolate custard recipe - perfect in our chocolate trifle or over a cheeky slice of cake for a proper old style pudding.
The chocolate custard is the layer above the chocolate beetroot cake in our trifle.
This custard can be made with pretty much any kind of milk. We used raw, home made hemp milk in this version, as we didn't want a coconutty flavour coming through. We understand that in some parts of the world hemp seeds are not available (!) to buy so if this is the case substitute your milk of choice.
We used raw hemp milk for the custard (you can use any other kind of milk if getting hold of hemp seeds is a problem) which is absolutely jam packed full of goodness including omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, all 10 essential amino acids, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, vitamins A, D, E and B12, folic acid, magnesium, iron and zinc.
The custard uses lots of egg yolks which provide lots of good stuff including vitamins A, D, E, B6 and B12 along with iron, thiamin, riboflavin, folate, pantothenic acid, calcium, phosphorus, selenium and much much more!
Raw cacao powder packs in lots of lovely magnesium which we are all allegedly deficient in these days along with antioxidants and 'feel good chemicals'.
