Apricot-Kumquat Pudding

I wanted to make a dairy-less pudding and this fruity, refreshing delight is the perfect light dessert to follow brunch or dinner. Super simple to make, I used Kuzu Root Starch as the thickener. For this pudding, I paired apricot nectar with kumquats, but you can use any organic juice and fruit combination that appeals to you. Next time, I’m going to pair bilberry nectar with blood oranges.


24 ounces bionaturæ® organic apricot nectar
3 tablespoons Eden Organic Kuzu Root Starch
10 kumquats, sliced and de-seeded

Optional toppings:
Dusting of Fennel Pollen
Dusting of Divine Desserts
Shaved organic dark chocolate
Toasted, chopped pistachios


Place the nectar, kuzu and kumquats in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and stir constantly until thick. Serve with any of the suggested toppings or whatever sounds good to you.
