Zero-carb custard pudding is one of our experimentation projects inspired by our love for eggs and minimalism. Well, to be precise, our passion for quail eggs! Now, we are aware that not everyone can get them easily. This is why we created the recipe that works perfectly with medium hen eggs. Whatever you choose, you will be surprised by the simplicity of the ingredients and the final result. With just a little bit of patience, you will experience a true work of culinary art.
How is it so low in carbs?
Let’s not be overly precise, there might be a gram or two of carbs in eggs. After all, nobody should fear carbs from eggs. The simplicity of this zero-carb custard pudding lais in the fact that we did not use anything but eggs and water. Naturally, a dash of vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt do the trick. Nothing else is needed. How about sweetener, you might ask. Well, we’ll leave it up to you! A dash of powdered monk fruit will not hurt anyone but It will drastically change the experience. On the other hand, if you feel brave, just exclude any sweetener. After all, cinnamon makes everything sweet and smooth.
