Coconut creme brûlée

facetune-3Hello dessert lover friends!

I am discovering that almost any dessert or food can be made healthy if we try our best. I love desserts, so I really try my best to make a healthy version of my favorite ones. Today I have for you a dairy free and sugar free creme brûlée, and believe me, it’s as good as the calorie bomb version of it.

facetune-4Ingredients:

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup of sweetener of your choice
  • 1 can of coconut milk (full fat version)
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine only  the coconut cream from the can, you do not need the liquid!
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract and heat the pan over medium until it just starts to simmer. Once simmering, take off of heat, and let it cool down completely
  4.  Mix together the egg yolks and the sweetener using a hand mixer. Whisk until the yolks start to get a cream color
  5. While whisking, pour the coconut mixture into the egg mixture and stir it slowly.
  6. Place four small creme brûlée containers into a baking tray that is filled with hot water
  7. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or so, the consistency has to be like a pudding
  8. When they are done, place them in the fridge for at least 2 hours
  9. If you wants the real thing, put 1 tbs of sweetener on the top and torch the top with a kitchen torch, till it’s golden, but you can skip this step and serv it instead with fruits and some fruit syrup
  10. Enjoy!
