That has been my mantra lately.
Quick and easy.
Especially when it comes to desserts.
This is one of those OMG, are you for real? desserts.
I didn’t believe it either, until I tried it. However, the success of your dessert lies within your banana. Not overripe bananas. Just ripe bananas, with just a few spots.
I mean, is there anything bananas CAN NOT DO? One frozen whipped banana makes a delicious ice cream. For this creme brulee, you could go all fancy, and add coconut milk, creamer, avocado, tofu perhaps, but this is for those without a big pantry.
Blend banana, thin with a bit of nondairy milk, and flavour with vanilla. Top with a sprinkling of coconut sugar. Broil for 3 minutes or until the top is melted.
If your banana is overripe, it will taste like pureed banana. But if you catch it right as it turns ripe, you’re in for a treat.
This is my submission to this month’s Bookmarked Recipes.
Ridiculously Easy Banana Creme Brulee
Adapted from She’s A Fit Chick
1 ripe banana (not overripe!)
1 tbsp nondairy milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp coconut sugar (or sugar of your choice)
1. In a food processor or blender, combine the banana with the soy milk and vanilla and blend until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides.
2. Pour the mixture into an ovenproof ramekin and sprinkle the sugar overtop.
3. Place filled ramekin into oven on the top shelf, and broil on high for approximately 3 minutes, until the top is nice and brown.
4. Remove from oven, let cool slightly then dig in!
