The classic crème brulee made healthy using low fat yogurt


  • Low fat plain Greek yogurt 1¾ cups
  • Orange zest 1 tsp
  • Egg yolks 3
  • Granulated sugar ¼ cup + 4 tsps
  • Honey 1 tbsp
  • Vanilla bean paste or pure vanilla extract 1 tbsp
  • Cinnamon powder ½ tsp


  • Preheat oven to 180º C.
  • Put egg yolks, ¼ cup sugar, honey, vanilla extract, orange zest and cinnamon powder in a food processor and blend till smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into 4 medium ramekin moulds. Place the ramekins in a baking tray. Pour water into the tray till it comes half way up the sides of the ramekin moulds.
  • Carefully place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or till the crème brulee shakes like jelly.
  • Remove the ramekins from the baking tray and place them in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Once the crème brulee is chilled, bring the ramekins out, sprinkle 1 tsp sugar on top of each ramekin. Torch the tops with a blow torch till the sugar caramelizes.
  • Let the crème brulee sit for a couple minutes before serving.
