Sugar Free Coconut Egg Custard Recipe

This started as a simplified old fashioned baked egg custard recipie like my mom would make.  I modified it to make it sugar free and low carb.  Its similar to a coconut custard pie minus the crust. 

I'm no good with dairy so I substituted almond milk.  I've seen custard recipes using heavy cream or 2% milk.  I'm sure you expert cooks will come up with other variations to suit your tastes. 

Post your versions and/ or let me know how you like this version.

This looks so very YUMMY!  I need to pick up the coconut today, but I will make it tonight.

Thank you for sharing.   

Like you, I am unable to use milk, so it was nice to actually see a recipe with the almond milk.

YUM!  I'm not to the point of creating recipies yet, but I will be when I'm closer to goal and this will definitely be on my list.

Whacka Doodle, do you think we could have a stickie for favorite recipes?  I hate to keep asking someone to post their recipe because I can't find it.
