Ridiculously Easy Banana Creme Brulee

Ridiculously Easy Banana Creme Brulee


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.

Ridiculously Easy Banana Creme Brulee

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.

That’s it!

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. 🙂


Ridiculously Easy Banana Creme Brulee

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!

Serves 1.

  1. wowweee! Im rubbish at making desserts but this looks ace 🙂 I’ve never seen coconut sugar before it sounds delicious!

  2. Your weren’t exaggerating! This is ridiculously easy… I may make it for dessert tonight! Maybe with a protein sauce. You know I have to have it every meal. LOL!

  3. Go bananas! I love this idea. The bananas on the counter are probably almost perfect 🙂

  4. this sounds like a fabulous dessert!

  5. NEEDS peanut butter. OMG that would be so good.

  6. I have never liked creme brulee but I suspect I might like this version – though catching bananas at the right time would be tricky – it is usually when they are black and horrid that I think it is time to get creative with them 🙂

  7. I am so amazed that that isn’t actual custard! Bananas are truly a miracle fruit.

  8. who can resist those beautiful ramekins with bruleed banana….no one for sure,they look perfectly browned and adorable 🙂

  9. Janet – this is brilliant!!!! I can NOT wait to try this!!!! I bet Gabby will love it and this is something I can make the whole family!!!!

  10. I must confess, when I read “easy” and “creme brulee” I thought – yeah right. It seemed impossible! And yet, the ingredient list suggests possible! Brilliant Janet 🙂 Thanks!

  11. Huh! I can’t believe it’s so easy! Fab and suitable for hubby too! Oh and thanks for submitting it to Bookmarked Recipes x

  12. oh my god, this is genius !!!

  13. Awesome! I didn’t realise you could broil it and it would come out like a nice brulée – I had always assumed you needed one of those little min-blow torches. I’m excited to try this out!

  14. this sounds too delicious and easy to not make!
