Crème Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Organic Soy Milk Unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch or Arrowroot Powder
  • 3 Tbsps Organic Powdered Date Sugar Or sweetener of your choice.
  • 1 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract or Powder


Crème Instructions:

  • In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch or arrowroot powder with 2 tablespoons of the soy milk until it forms a smooth paste.
  • In a saucepan, heat the remaining soy milk over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Stir in the corn starch paste and continue to cook, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture thickens slightly.
