One GRITS Journey To Convert Beloved Southern Recipes to Paleo Approved, and Darn GOOD too!

This is my story of how I am striving to change my family's life, nutritionally, for the better. Here in the deep South Paleo is a foreign word. No one has heard of it, and gluten free is really almost as unheard of...
After reading Gary Taubes enlightning GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES I was determine to change! Armed with my own two hands, the internet (thank God for AMAZON.com), and all those wonderful blogs and podcasts available now, I am beginning my journey.
Please feel free to join me as I try to adapt all of our Southern Favorites into Paleo Appropriate Scrumptiousness!!! (and all Gluten Free) I will try to post all of the good ones, and may even blog about some failures along the way.

Cafe au Lait Pudding to die for!!!!

So Yummy, we ate half before I remembered to take a pic!!! This is the best one I have, it looked pretty at first I promise!

I found this on one of my fav new sites... Click here and Check it out- her pics are way prettier!!!

Cafe au Lait Pudding

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee
2 T cornstarch
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup heavy cream to make Whipped Cream

(This will make 2 servings) 


Mix together all dry ingredients, whisk them well so that there are no clumps.
Cook heavy cream and brewed coffee on lowish heat until simmering.
Once it reaches a simmer add in your sugar mixture.
Whisk constantly for 1 min and then take it off of the heat. 
Pour into your serving dishes through a strainer( I used smallish coffee mugs) and cover on the surface with plastic wrap so that a film does not form. 
Place in fridg to set up-  around 3 hours.

When ready to serve- whip up your cream in a stand mixer. To whip cream start it slowly, then after a minute you can speed it up until you are on high speed. Watch it and as soon as it is thick turn it off and you are ready- EASY PEASY
  • I don't add anything to the cream to sweeten it because the pudding is already so sweet, but you could add a tad sugar to your whipping cream if you wish.
