In all seriousness, once I learned my lesson and completed Step 12, I had the most delicious snack ever! Look at this achievement in culinary arts! Raspberry pudding…..mmmmmm!
As per usual, it’s from the Autoimmune Wellness Handbook, and was surprisingly easy to make (if you just stop to read the instructions). The only thing I would change about this recipe is the use of minced vanilla bean. The flavor was a bit strong, and not in a good way. The next time I make it, I’m going to try vanilla extract and see if that offers a gentler experience for my palate.
