Looking for an alternative for ‘special date’ dessert??
October 27, 2016
Personally I love the taste of Chai…..the spices drag me in! Now I rarely do dessert – normally maybe a few times a year when friends may come around for a dinner. I think I might try this one out next?!?
Chai Creme Brulee
400ml coconut cream
125ml almond milk
1Tbsp rice malt syrup/honey/agave (maybe a little less)
1 chai tea bag
1/2 cinnamon stick
6 whole cloves
4 cardamon pods, bruised
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp agar agar
1/3C coconut sugar
Combine coconut cream, almond milk, rice malt syrup, tea bag, spices & vanilla in medium saucepan over heat….bring to simmering heat but don’t boil.
Strain off solids, reserving the liquid.
Place agar agar in small bowl & ladle over coconut mixture.
Stir well, then slowly pour back into saucepan – stirring well until dissolved.
Pour into ramekins & refrigerate for 3-4hrs or until set.
To serve, cover with coconut sugar & place under grill set to high until caramelised, or use a blow torch.
