Low Carb Vanilla Pudding

I worked this out to be part of my eclair recipe and had to try the pudding on its own. Not the lowest in carbs, but it is a satisfying treat.
1/3 Cup of Granulated Sweetener
1 Tablespoon Liquid Sweetener 
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch 
1 Tablespoon Almond Meal

1 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
2 Eggs
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Prep Work
-Beat eggs in a small bowl.

1. Mix together in saucepan on: almond milk, cream, liquid sweetener, sweetener, cornstarch and almond meal. 
2. Stir occasionally. The mixture should thicken. Once it begins to thicken cook and stir for 3-5 minutes.  
3. Pour one cup of the hot mixture into the eggs.
4. Pour egg mixture into the saucepan and cook for 2-4 minutes. 
5. Remove from heat and melt butter into the mixture.
6. When the butter is fully melted add in the vanilla.
