It’s possible to make a vegan custard and it’s super simple. Just replace the milk with a plant based milk of your choice, I have chosen the vanilla soy drink that has a light taste that I like. Then to get that creaminess and shine that the yolks give I use Natur Emul Sosa, a product created with citrus fiber used to replace the fat that serves to emulsify.
- 250 g vanilla milk;
- 1/2 vanilla bean;
- 40 g sugar;
- 10 g cane sugar;
- 30 g cornflour;
- 3,75 g Natur Emul Sosa (Opțional, soy lecithin could also be used);
- Pinch of turmeric (to color).
1 – In a small saucepan, heat the soy drink with the seeds taken from the vanilla pod, in a bowl mix the sugars, cornstarch, Natur Emul and turmeric.
2 – With a whisk add the powders to the soy drink and bring to 80 °C to thicken the cornstarch.
3 – Blend with an immersion blender. Transfer the cream to a bowl, cover with cling film and let it cool in the refrigerator.
