Paleo Pastry Cream

During the Holidays the cravings for sweets pushed me into experimenting more paleo dessert recipes and this pastry cream recipe is the result of one of those experiments.  The paleo pastry cream is gluten, wheat and dairy free but it still tastes sweet and smooth like the original recipe.

2 cups coconut milk
1 Tbs vanilla extract
6 egg yolks
1/4 cup honey or coconut sugar (I used coconut sugar)
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon extract

In a saucepan, stir together coconut milk and vanilla extract, bring to a light boil.  Meanwhile whisk egg yolks and sugar or honey together to make a smooth cream, stir in tapioca flour stirring until smooth.  Drizzle the milk a little bit at the time over the egg/flour mix whisking constantly until smooth.  Return the mixture to the saucepan and bring to boil stirring constantly until the cream is thick and smooth.  Remove from heat and add additional 2 tsp of vanilla extract and 1/2 tsp of lemon extract.  Pour into a glass o ceramic bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent skin from forming.   Refrigerate completely before using.  It makes about 2 cups... enjoy!
