Found in the town of Loma Linda, one of the famous Blue Zones (places where longevity is the norm), this recipe from Grace O's cookbook Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World features a non-dairy, nut-free milk made from pea protein.


⅓ cup dark agave syrup*

2 whole eggs

6 egg yolks

2 cups Ripple Unsweetened Original non-dairy milk

½ cup coconut sugar (or monk fruit sweetener)

2 tsp. lime zest


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a pot, add the agave syrup and simmer over low heat until reduced to half. Pour into 2 metal flan molds or a 4 by 6-inch oven-proof glass baking dish. Set aside.

3. In a medium bowl, mix the whole eggs and the 6 egg yolks with the milk and sugar.

4. Using a fine strainer, strain the egg mixture into the molds or baking dish and sprinkle with the lime zest. Place the molds or baking dish into a deep pan.

5. Fill the pan with enough water to come halfway up the side of the molds or baking dish.

6. Bake for 40 minutes or until set.

7. Run a knife around the inside of the molds or baking dish to free the flan and turn it out onto a serving dish. Serve warm or cold, and top with fresh berries, if desired.
