The crème brûlée is a traditional French dessert made with eggs, double-cream, and sugar, topped with a layer of caramelised sugar. It's an absolute blast of flavour but not at all healthy and with lots of food allergens. Our no-bake vegan mango crème brûlée is a healthier variation of the classic we all love. We kept all the indulgence but replaced bad fats and allergens with a healthy mango puree and coconut milk, making this recipe dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, and vegan.
And what it makes it even better is that it doesn’t require baking in the oven. You'll only have to cook it for a few minutes over the hob to thicken up the mango-based cream, then straight in the fridge and into your belly.
Also, there are no added sugars to the cream base as it’s already naturally sweet thanks to the mango puree. This helps reducing your intake of added-sugars, for a healthier dessert.
Because there are no eggs, it is the mango that gives that nice yellow colour to the cream. If you prefer an even deeper tone, just add a pinch of turmeric to the cream base before blending the ingredients. As for the coconut cream, we show you how to make it in this recipe from canned coconut milk.
Long story short, our mango crème brûlée truly is a delicious treat everyone can enjoy, thanks to a healthier selection of ingredients. But don't take our word for it! Learn how to make it at home following our step-by-step recipe below.
