When The Recipe ReDux introduced this present recipe contest for our members: “Festively Lactose Free” (sponsored by the Southeast Dairy Affiliation), I knew precisely which recipe I used to be going to make: Snow Pudding.

The problem was to make a vacation favourite utilizing lactose-free milk. I used to be launched to Snow Pudding quickly after I began courting my future husband. For each vacation or simply about each celebratory get-together (there are A LOT of those if you end up one among 11 kids and have 16 nieces & nephews), there may be Snow Pudding on the dessert desk. Mimi (Jim’s grandmother) was the originator of the recipe (rumor has it that she tailored it from a cookbook obtained as a marriage present in 1930.)

It takes a little bit time to make however the last effort is scrumptious and fairly, too. The 2 elements of the recipe are a fundamental vanilla custard and lemon flavored “snow” topping which consists of egg whites, gelatin, sugar and lemon juice. After all, the custard is milk primarily based, so for this model, I used 1% lowfat lactose-free milk and it labored superbly. Lactose-free milk is definitely actual dairy milk – the enzyme lactase is added to interrupt down the pure milk sugar, lactose. Consequently, it tastes barely sweeter than common milk however nonetheless affords the identical 9 important vitamins.

As we host Christmas yearly to about 30 folks, I’ll stay up for making this model of Snow Pudding, particularly since my mother – who has lactose intolerance – will now be capable to see what everybody’s been raving about over time.
