Georgia’s Fruit Pudding

I recently fell in love with Georgia Pellegrini’s book Food Heroes and will be giving it to various friends for the holidays. The recipe below is my adaptation of Georgia’s grandmother’s fruit pudding, which I think you’ll enjoy.

This light and easy to eat dessert is a perfect Christmas pudding.  It’s basically made with dried fruit and eggs and won’t leave you and your Christmas guests with the typical high carb hangover that often results from holiday treats. Enjoy and thanks Georgia!

I recently wrote an article for Natural Solutions Magazine which was featured on the cover, if you can believe that (I can’t!).  The subject is my gluten free journey, and also provides information on the various high protein flours that I use.  You can find a copy of Natural Solutions at any Barnes & Noble in the country.  My article is in the November issue of Natural Solutions (which hit newsstands a couple of weeks late), in case you’d like to take a look at it.

  1. YEA!!!!! I emailed Natural Solutions about your blog a long time ago! Turns out they actually did contact you! :) I’m so glad! I ADORE all your recipes Elana and tell people about them ALL THE TIME! :) Thanks for making my tummy very happy! :)

  2. I’d like to make this, it looks lovely! I’m wondering, 1. Should I cover the pot whilst simmering the fruit, and 2. Should I let it cool before adding the eggs? I’m worried the eggs will cook in just-boiled water!!

  3. This looks like my kind of dessert now that I’ve cut out gluten and sugar. Yum. Thanks for posting it.

  4. What a wonderful Christmas dessert! I, too, would love to know how many servings this recipe makes.
    And congratulations on making the cover of Natural Solutions Magazine!

  5. This sounds like the perfect light-but-delicious holiday dessert! I’m guessing that other dried fruit would suffice? I have some Medjool dates and plenty of dried cranberries on hand that I’d like to use in place of the apricots and prunes.

    Congrats on the published article! Definitely something to be proud about :).
