  • Whisk together almond milk, egg yolks, honey, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until the custard coats the back of a spoon (do not boil). If necessary, strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl to remove any lumps; stir in almond extract and salt. Cover and chill for 8 to 24 hours.
