Isn’t a warm blueberry pie served with a homemade vanilla sauce the best treat on a cold winter day? If you are allergic it is very easy to make the recipe lactose free.
Fun fact: The vanilla bean comes from the only fruit-bearing orchid that exists and has been used of people all over the world for centuries. Vanilla has many health benefits that are similar to raw cacao, for example they both contain manganese and substances which enhance the brain and mood health.
2 pinches of vanilla powder (or a vanilla bean)
3 egg yolks
1cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1 ½cup milk 3% (or soy milk)
1 ½cup cream (or alpro cream)
Whip the egg yolks with the coconut sugar. Put the vanilla powder (or vanilla bean) in a casserole with the milk and cream. Let it boil for 1 minute and then pour it over the egg mix and stir. Pour everything back into the casserole and heat until the sauce thickens – approx. 5 minutes (but do not let it boil!). Strain the sauce through a fine sieve and let cool before serving.
