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.

      Hello Jordana,

      I have not tried that, so I’m not sure. The aim of the raw Russian custard is that you can eat it on the GAPS Introduction diet, when you can only have the egg yolks in their raw state.

      Thank you,
      Melanie

  1. This is the same as the recipe in Dr. Natasha’s GAPS diet book. I just made it and my 4 yr. old smiled and said “mmmm, mmmm” until it was gone. I also enjoyed it as well as my 3 and 2 yr. old. I’m going to give it to my husband tonight and not tell him what’s in it. He doesn’t like eggs, but he’ll like this. It’s easy to make, too. As for all those left over egg whites, I made green bean stirfry with them.

          Hi Kristy,

          I don’t think that would work, because the yolks need to be “whipped” and the Vitamix would simply blend.

          Kindly,
          Melanie
