Pumpkin Creme Brulee 1 PUMPKIN

Have you ever had crème brûlée – the rich, custardy dessert that’s topped with a hard sugar shell?

It’s a decadent dessert favorite for a reason. It’s creamy, sweet, and delicious.

And as you probably have guessed, it’s not exactly on the top of the charts when it comes to being healthy and nutritious.

But what about a healthy, paleo version of crème brûlée? Is that even possible? And also one that you can make ahead and only takes 5 minutes to prepare?

Challenge accepted!

Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée

My recipe for Coconut Milk Pumpkin Pie Crème Brûlée sounds gourmet, but it’s actually incredibly easy to make.

Not only that, but it’s sweetened without refined white sugar and contains no dairy. Instead, coconut milk creates a creamy base that rivals restaurant-made crème brûlée.

You’re definitely going to want to try this one out (or my 4-ingredient vegan version) – and then put the recipe in your “company desserts” folder.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a high-speed blender, puree the egg yolks, egg, coconut milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, stevia, and honey.
  3. Pour into 6 ramekins that have been sprayed with nonstick coconut oil spray.
  4. Place in a large baking dish and pour 2 cups of water around the base of the ramekins.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, then sprinkle the coconut palm sugar gently on top of each crème brûlée.
  6. Cook an additional 10 minutes, or until the center of the crème brûlée has firmed and is no longer liquid.
  7. Remove from oven. Cool completely.
  8. If you’d prefer to brown the sugar with a culinary torch, you can. But the sprinkles coconut palm sugar will harden and crystallize as the crème brûlée cools.
