  1. I want to try this so much. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors but I can’t have dairy. Is there an alternative that will work?

    • The dairy is only in the whipped cream, not in the lemon pudding itself. Search for Elana’s coconut whipped cream and try that instead.

  2. This looks a lot like recipes for lemon curd- not a bad thing! I love lemon curd and this looks like a great way to make make and serve it. I’d serve it with one of your gingersnaps.

  3. Hi Elana!

    I love your puddings and custards. I wondered how long these typically keep in the fridge. And have you ever tried freezing these? I am pregnant and I am trying to bake and cook in order to stick my freezer early on in the pregnancy in order to save myself when the baby comes this winter. Thought on what items keep well in the freezer…

    Thank you! Hugs for grain-free living!

  4. Elana, you have done it again! This is scrumptious! Everyone out there be warned though, this is VERY filling and rich. In other words don’t eat too much before your stomach catches up! Thank you so much for sharing all of your wonderful recipes with us – I could not have gone on this journey without your help.

  5. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into all of your delicious-sounding recipes! I have a question regarding this recipe – you mention the lemon juice in both step one and two. Do I separate the juice or should it only be in one of the steps.


  6. Dear Sarah, this is such a sweet comment. I really appreciate that you have come out of silence to leave it. Your words mean a lot to me. xoxoxo

  7. Elana,

    You are an extraordinarily generous person, sharing not only your simple and stunning recipes with the rest of us, but also giving glimpses into your life in general.

    I’ve been a silent admirer for months but no longer. Had to express my heartfelt appreciation.

    Thank you thank you thank you.


  8. Debbie,

    Thanks for your sweet comment. Unfortunately, the reason I made too many angel food cakes is that they were all disasters. That is a recipe I have tried to get right for years to no avail. I will keep trying and post it if it comes out well.


  9. Elana, you mentioned you used the egg yolks from too many gluten free angel food cakes. I used the search on your site to see if I could find the recipe for the angelfood cakes and could not find it.
    Are you going to post the recipe for the angelfood cake? It is something I would really like to try.
    Your recipes have made such a difference to my daughter. She can now have dessert again. Your carrot cake was a huge success.
    Thank you

  10. Yumm.. I love how this is dripping over with deliciousness. Have you ever experimented with making this dairy free? I wonder whether you could use coconut milk or even condense-your-own-coconut milk, like in your chocolate pudding, which also looks amazing and is on my must try list as soon as Amazon gets more chocodrops. By the way, how do you get away with no starches here, but need to use arrowroot there? And what exactly is arrowroot?

    Thanks, Elana!

    • The dairy is only in the whipped cream, not in the lemon pudding itself. Search for Elana’s coconut whipped cream and try that instead. (And the cooking of the egg yolks thickens this – like lemon curd. And arrowroot is a starch derived from the root of a tropical plant. It forms crosslinks with other molecules once heated. You can look it up on wikipedia.)
