    I’ve made this recipe and enjoyed it very much! I was surprised to see Giada DeLauerntis make this as her dessert for her “romantic dinner” on Simply Giada last Saturday. The only difference was that her recipe called for 3/4 cup of coconut yogurt and 3/4 cup of almond milk. I tried it using unsweetened versions of both. She called it “Budino”. Great dessert or treat!

        Can oatmilk be used instead? Can it be made without nuts?

          You can use the oatmeal instead and you don’t have to add the nuts.
