This Sweet Potato Custard is crustless so it is naturally gluten-free. The whipped cream is homemade and the best whipped cream I’ve ever tasted! If you need to be dairy-free, feel free to substitute Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream which is just as good.

Sweet Potato Custard

This recipe is naturally gluten free as it is just full of sweet potato goodness and no crust. Although, I do make a wicked good gluten free pie crust so if you need a pie… no worries. It is coming.

Mix all of the ingredients together, bake at 350 degrees, cool and pipe some homemade whipped cream on top. If you’re feeling fancy sprinkle some ground cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Boom. Dessert is served.
