Free Healthy Recipe - Soy Custard

Dairy free, Low fat, Low sugar

This custard uses agar agar flakes as a thickener rather than artificial additives found in some commercial custards, and is a healthier alternative to regular custard as it uses maple syrup as a natural sweetener.
Serve with fresh or poached fruit for a healthy low fat dessert.

1 litre soy milk
½ cup maple syrup
1/3 cup agar flakes
¼ tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp nutmeg

In a large saucepan, whisk together soy milk, maple syrup, agar flakes and sea salt. Bring to the boil over medium heat, watching carefully to prevent it from foaming over.
Turn the heat down, whisk occasionally and simmer uncovered until agar has completely dissolved (about 5 mins).
Turn off the heat and whisk in vanilla.
Pour mixture into a standard 8 square inch baking dish or individual custard cups, and dust the surface with nutmeg.
Cover with waxed paper or cling wrap to prevent a skin from forming on top and the surface from darkening and refrigerate 1 - 1.5 hrs to set.

To make a runnier soy cream, place in a blender before refrigerating and use a cup more soy milk.
