If you happen to be allergic to cornstarch, please substitute arrowroot for a still-delicious and ultimately more nutritious dessert. Arrowroot creates a high-gloss texture reminiscent of Nickelodeon GAK.
If a home juicer is not available, most health food stores contain a juice bar. You can buy a pint container and drink the rest as a snack. A jarred carrot juice could substitute here. Also, you can fold in 2 tbsp of freshly grated carrot at the end. If you are commonly a “pulp-free” orange juice drinker or serving this to finicky kids, it may be best to leave out.

Nutritional Information (per serving)
- 1 cup organic whole milk
1/2 cup raw cream
1/3 cup maple crystals
pinch sea salt
1/2 cup fresh squeezed carrot juice, strained of pulp
3 tbsp organic cornstarch
2 pastured egg yolks
2 tbsp finely grated carrots (optional)
2 tbsp roughly chopped dehydrated walnuts, for garnish
2 tbsp roughly chopped raisins, for garnish
- In a small pot over medium heat, combine milk, cream, maple crystals and sea salt.

- In a second small bowl, combine walnuts and raisins, toss with fingers to combine.
- When milk mixture is very warm, add well-whisked carrot juice mixture to the milk.
- Whisk constantly, until thickened, approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and if desired, stir in 2 tbsp finely grated carrots.
- Immediately pour 1/2 cup servings into 4 small dishes or ramekins.
- Divide topping amongst the four dishes and serve warm or chill and serve cool.
