HEALTHY (PALEO) BREAD PUDDING
This Healthy (Paleo) Bread Pudding will enhance the ending of any festive meal…or after any meal!
Bread pudding, also known as poor man’s pudding, has a history that dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries when frugal cooks looked for ways to use stale and leftover bread, not letting it go to waste.
A good deal of bread pudding warm sauces exist, such as those made with rum and butter, bourbon, caramel, and vanilla. Since you are following a Paleo diet, I’ve included a vanilla sauce. If you are following a Paleo lifestyle, you may want to add a little alcohol to the sauce for that umami flavour bonus!
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF DATE PASTE?
This Healthy (Paleo) Bread Pudding calls for homemade date paste which is allowable on the Paleo path. The paste is super easy to make and nutritious. Did you know that dates are higher in polyphenols than any of the most commonly consumed fruits and vegetables? Polyphenols neutralize free radicals, helping to reduce the damage caused by inflammation. Inflammation is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and a list of autoimmune diseases. Dates are also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, and fiber and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. This recipe also calls for unsweetened apple sauce and fresh apples. Apple sauce is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. It is also a decent source of fiber and vitamin C. While the date paste and apple sauce are natural sugars, the bread pudding is unlikely to spike blood sugar levels. The reason is that the DOH, primarily made with almond flour and the fiber in the dates and apples helps to slow the digestion of the sugar in the dates and apples.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF HEALTHY BREAD PUDDING?
What is the taste profile of Healthy (Paleo) Bread Pudding? Date paste is a great alternative to brown sugar in recipes. The predominant taste sensation of this dessert is sweetness from the date paste, apple sauce, apples, coconut cream, and raisins. The texture is dense and chewy like bread pudding!
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH HEALTHY BREAD PUDDING?
With the predominant taste profile of this Healthy (Paleo) Bread Pudding being sweet, this dessert demands a wine with more sweetness. But this can add too much sweetness to your meal. Remember we don’t want an insulin spike! Instead of pairing the sweetness of the dessert with the sweetness in the wine, which is a classic principle, do the opposite. Pair this desert with a brut (bone-dry) bubbly.

OMG, the Ninja NC301 CREAMi Ice Cream Maker is the BEST appliance I’ve bought for myself to support my diet. I stand behind this product 100%. I eat healthy high protein ice cream every night.

I’ve made ice cream with cottage cheese and almond milk with protein powder; tofu with almond milk and protein powder; fat-free plain yogurt with almond milk and more! The machine shaves frozen pints perfectly with its one-touch programs.. You can prepare ice cream, sorbet, gelato, milkshake, smoothie bowl, lite ice cream and more. Prep your base, freeze overnight, process, and enjoy!
Sometimes it takes more than one spin to get your desired texture. Select the re-spin function if, after processing, you want your processed treat softer and creamier. This unit is ONLY compatible with the Ninja CREAMi NC299 and NC300 pint accessories. It will NOT fit the NC100, NC200 or NC500 Series pints. With the Ninja Creami you can enjoy healthy treats that taste just as good as regular ice cream loaded in bad saturated fat, sugar, and preservatives.
