Gluten Free Lemon Pudding

I love making pudding recipes!  They are so simple and with small variations, you can make HUGE flavor and consistency changes!  So I set out to make the most delicious gluten-free lemon pudding recipe out there!

And that I did!

This easy lemon pudding recipe is so easy to make that you can make batch after batch whenever the kids ask for it without even batting an eye!

Lemon Juice or Lemon Extract?

I’ve tried both lemon juice and lemon extract in pudding recipes.  I prefer to use the lemon extract for several reasons:

  1. Lemon Juice is a bit bitter
  2. You can save carbs and calories if that is of concern
  3. It is easier to control the level of lemon flavor with the extract.

How to Store Lemon Pudding

Store this tasty pudding in an airtight container and definitely in the fridge!  

The absolute best way to store it to keep the air off the top and avoid the firm film that forms on top is to place saran wrap on top.  You want the saran wrap actually touching the top of the pudding!

How Long Will It Last?

If stored properly, this should last for 3-4 days.

How to Make Lemon Pudding

In a medium saucepan, warm heavy whipping cream over medium heat until hot but not boiling.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix sweetener, flour, and salt.

Once the whipping cream mixture is hot, add the dry ingredients.

Stir continually as the sauce begins to thicken, 2-5 minutes.

Add 2 egg yolks to a small bowl and beat with a fork.

Pour a small amount of hot mixture into the egg bowl. Mix quickly and add back into the hot mixture. Continue stirring for another few minutes as sauce thickens.

Once you can scrape your spatula across the pan and it leaves empty space (i.e. it is more thick than liquid), then remove from heat and add lemon extract. Mix well.
