Some call bread pudding one of the most delicious comfort foods on the planet! I know I do.
With coconut milk and cashews as core ingredients to this recipe, this bread pudding is a quick-and-easy, creamy, non-dairy dessert.
Coconut milk is a nourishing whole food, coriander and ginger add to its flavor and digestibility, lucuma adds fiber, and cashews increase the protein.
I like to collect old bits of bread for my bread pudding, but, if you don’t have some old bread on hand, just cube up your favorite bread and put it in a 320-degree oven for 20 minutes then proceed with this recipe.
