How often do you eat desserts? What if desserts weren’t all packed with unhealthy fats and sugar? There wouldn’t be a problem then if we had them more often, right? With that thought in mind, I decided to make this scrumptious Custard Pie Recipe. It doesn’t contain any sugar at all. Just honey. Plus it’s made with goats milk, therefore a lot healthier.
How It’s Made
You make it by adding a few layers of phyllo as a base and then add the honey custard cream on top. Once it’s baked and ready to be served you drizzle some extra honey and cinnamon on top. And if you like walnuts as well. This Honey Custard Pie Recipe is pretty similar to our traditional Greek Syrupy Custard Pie (Galaktoboureko) which is of course packed with sugar but sooo good.
This Honey Pie though has a different kind of sweetness. It’s filled with warm flavors and kind of takes you back in time. It has that comforting homey flavor to it. The warm custard along with the honey and cinnamon makes you wanna sit back and relax enjoying this hearty pie.
Why Goat’s Milk?
For one it’s much healthier than cow’s milk. About 50% of people who experience lactose intolerance can easily consume goat’s milk without any problem at all. The reason is that for one, goat’s milk contains less lactose than cow’s milk. And for two, the fat molecules in goat’s milk are smaller which makes it easier to digest. Other than this, goat’s milk is more nutritionally wholesome since it contains almost twice the number of fatty acids that can be found in cow’s milk.
All in all, it’s a delicious, comforting and very nutritious custard pie recipe. Which really makes you run out of reasons as for –Why not to have some?
