Last but definitely not the least of our family’s favorite usage of fresh goat milk is this rich, creamy, pudding recipe. ItΒ  tastes like a fancy custard you’d find in a French restaurant yet it’s so simple to make!

I remember my dismay when I learned that our nostalgic and comforting tapioca pudding recipe could not be made with goat milk. The tapioca granules in the milk mixture must be heated to a boil and held for at least one minute for it to act as a thickener. You can’t heat goat milk that hot without a strong ‘goaty’ flavor developing.

So, my 13 year old son, who is a natural born ‘foody’, was determined to find a way to make a pudding with goat milk that didn’t require the milk to reach a boil.

Not only did he come up with a recipe, he came up with a recipe that tastes like it was invented by a culinary chef!

What you’ll need:

A high-powered blender such as a Vita-Mix

4 cups fresh goat milk

1/2 cup sugar

10 T. (or slightly less than 2/3 cup) cornstarch

1/2 tsp. salt

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. butter

Step 1 – heat milk in a kettle until it is steaming good but not to the point where it begins to simmer. Be sure to stir occasionally so the milk doesn’t stick to the bottom.

Step 2 – Add steaming milk, sugar, cornstarch, and salt to blender pitcher. Blend on high for 4 minutes.

Step 3 – reduce speed to medium (speed 5 on the Vita-Mix) and add eggs, vanilla, and butter. Blend 10 seconds.

Gotta love those bright yolks!


Step 4 – Pour into individual dessert dishes and chill until firm.

Serve this to guests as an after-dinner dessert. They’ll think you slaved over it!

    Would it work with un-pasteurized honey and agar instead of sugar and GMO corn starch? If I can still get 3 cups of milk out of my goat I will try this!

    Best way to find out is to try it! πŸ™‚ Bob’s Red Mill cornstarch is non GMO.

    Looks amazing! Can it be made with raw honey instead of sugar?
