This sesame vanilla pudding is sweet, delicious and fully plant-based.
You can never go wrong with pudding for dessert!
There are so many different flavor varieties but chocolate and vanilla are always at the top.
Vanilla is a classic flavor but adding another, not so expected flavor to a traditional takes this pudding to another level.
Enter sesame flavor! Sesame gives this pudding a nutty flavor that is unique and very pleasant.
To incorporate that sesame flavor, the tiny seeds are lightly toasted then ground into a paste.
As the pudding mixture simmers on the stove, the ground seeds are infused into the milk.
Since we are keeping it dairy free, I am using unsweetened almond milk.
The almond milk enhances that nutty flavor and makes for a great base.
The pudding is sweetened with sugar and thickened with tapioca starch.
You can also use cornstarch as a thickener.
For that beautiful yellow color a small pinch of turmeric powder is added.
Traditionally, the yellow color in vanilla pudding comes from the egg yolks.
Adding turmeric is completely optional!
For the vanilla flavor, pure vanilla extract is a must.
Vanilla paste is also a great addition.

Get a Small Sauce Pan
Add all of ingredients except for the vanilla extract to a small sauce pan and whisk well to incorporate.
Bring the saucepan to the stove and heat over medium heat.
Whisk occasionally to prevent the pudding from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Once the pudding starts to bubble, lower the heat to low, over and allow to steam for 2 minutes.
Next, add the vanilla extract and whisk once more to combine.
