  3. Remove from heat and stir in lemon zest and salt. Spoon pudding into individual bowls topped with sliced almonds and dusted with cinnamon, if desired. Pudding can also be served cold by transferring to a glass bowl and covering with plastic wrap directly on the surface of pudding and storing in the refrigerator.
