Recipe by Elana's Pantry
I was determined to make a vegan custard, not the easiest thing since custard is basically made of eggs; After a bit of research I came upon this quick and easy no cook recipe which provided the inspiration for my custard base. I am quite intrigued with this no fuss method of making custard and look forward to using it for many other flavor variations. http://www.elanaspantry.com/desserts/pumpkin-custard/
