This Russian custard recipe is SO simple, it hardly merits being called a recipe.
However, it is a delicious addition to the GAPS Diet protocol, an easy to make dessert, and a wonderful way to get more (healing and nutrient dense) raw egg yolks into yourself or family members. It also makes a great topping for my GAPS Intro pancakes!
It is also (technically) a GAPS Introduction Diet legal dessert. Yes, I said that right.
Please use sparingly and judiciously on the Introduction Diet as this period of the GAPS Diet and Protocol is meant to be a period of deep nutrition and healing.
Small amounts of honey are allowed on the Introduction Diet for tea. So instead of putting honey in your tea, you can use it for Russian custard on Stage 2 and beyond. It only takes a teaspoon of honey.
