Custard is generally made with milk or cream, egg yolks, and usually sugar. Depending on how much sugar is used, this can definitely qualify as a healthy treat if you can tolerate dairy and limit your consumption.
Eggs As Nutrient-Rich Foods
Despite suffering from the recent anti-fat fad, egg yolks are among the most nutritious foods out there. They’re meant to start new life, so they come packed with all the necessary vitamins and minerals, including various B vitamins, calcium, iron, and selenium. Adding plenty of egg yolks will help make sure your Paleo dessert is as nutritious as possible.
Paleo and Sweeteners
If making your own custard, try staying away from granulated sugar and using Paleo-approved sweeteners such as honey or stevia. That will add a few more nutrients while limiting the glycemic load of the dessert.
