I've had a lot of success with rice pudding, made from scratch using oatmilk. The kids never got to try it though :ahem:

Pickled, Swedish ice cream is soya sad so whilst yummy is no good to me or the OP

reminds myself to google coconut milk ice cream dorisday

Hellobear, I think the sultana and apricot wouldn't freeze well, less. So the scones.
I make muffins with oatly milk and grated apple which freeze fairly well.

Vitalite!

Cake pops made in machine with soya milk and vitality

We made scones with stork block and Oatly cream, no sugar but with sultarnas and dried apricots. Not bad. Don't know

Thanks all, some good idea's here.

hwhite6 - same problem at nursery, every pudding is substituted with just a piece of fruit for mine. Complained umpteen times and they are ok for a few weeks making custard etc but then slip back to habit of just omitting the custard's and ice creams. Kids come home ravenous, and have real issues gaining weight. I got so angry when I compared what they were having compared with what the menu said the rest had that day, as they must be down several hundred calories a day.

Chocolate Coconut milk custard is a favourite here too!

I love the look of these for the summer but I am yet to find somewhere to buy them. http://www.smooze.co.uk/

Oh and muffins are whizzy and freeze well
Just use oat milk instead

Stork in yellow foil wrap is dairy free. Make pastry jam tarts lemon curd tarts
Meringues
Choc mousse with oOatly choc milk corn flour and spot sugar
Ice poles and pops
Innocent fruit tubes fresh or frozen
Custard
Lots of sponge fingers dairy free soak in oj and make trifle
Small Morrison flan cases and the gelatin stuff over tinned fruit
Apple crumble in small ramekin

grin we like puds!

Chocolate moose, chocolate (check dairy and soya free!!), sugar eggs. Yes, you need to refrigerate for two hours but they will eat it runny!!

Also, chocolate mixed with egg yolks make the most fabulous high calorie snack!! They need to set in the fridge too.

Yes sorry, Angel Delight has milk powder in it. We were getting on ok with me avoiding all obvious dairy rather than checking ingredients but we've had a couple of bad nights so I need to be more vigilant now.

I checked the branded angel delight the other day & it does contain milk. Didn't read the own-brand though. The Pearces Blamange is df. Bought that to make up with almond milk, figured wouldn't need sugar (kids happily have custard powder & milk with no added sugar, so though Blamange would be the same); it so NEEDS sugar adding to it! It also didn't set through properly & the boys didn't really like it once it was sloppy mush... Not abject failure, but another 3 packet flavours to try& get it right ;)

I'm trying to find something other than jelly or fruit for a pudding as he seems to get over-loaded with this everytime he's at nursery these days...

Mariana Is Angel Delight dairy free? I never thought of making up with dairy free milk, I just assumed that it would have milk powder in the packet mix. Will go and look it up.

Custard made with chocolate coconut milk goes down well here. I tend to make a sponge and fruit pudding and freeze it in portions and have to send a portion a day for ds1's pudding at school. Have you looked at the Cows Milk Allergy Support website or Facebook group (also for intolerances)? I've found the parents on there share a wealth of information.

I'd find this useful too, I mostly have jelly, fruit or biscuits. I've bought angel delight and blancmange to try with almond milk, not very healthy though. I found custard made with rice milk was hideous.

Custard made with custard powder and non dairy milk keeps well in fridge and made thick enough it doesn't tend to have a skin. Jelly made up with non dairy milk is reasonably nice... will watch this thread with interest, we have lapsed in our house and tend to rely heavily on biscuits / bowl of cereal / fruit...

So I am after quick and easy (tried and tested) high calorie healthy desserts for a 1 and 4 year old. So I am thinking something like a rice pudding or yoghurt substitute. Ideally I would need to be able to make it in advance and freeze or keep for a few days in fridge, or make from scratch in under 5 mins.
Can you keep custard chilled when made? how do you prevent the skin forming?.
Anything I can buy off the shelf without loads of sugar and additives?
High in calcium would be good too.
