If you like crème brule but don’t want the extra fat and sugar, you will love this delightfully light dairy-free dessert. I have added fresh berries and coconut cream as a topping, but you can add your favourite liqueur instead for striking finish.


  • 2 cups gluten-free vanilla coconut milk
  • ½ tsp. organic, gluten-free ground cinnamon
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 organic egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. gluten-free tapioca starch
  • Instructions

  • Whisk all the ingredients together
  • Pour mix in a heavy bottom pot and while stirring, slowly heat the mixture just until thickened, do not boil or it may curdle (taste to make sure the starch is fully cooked)
  • Cool and pour mixture into serving bowls
  • Refrigerate overnight for it to set
  • Serve with fresh berries and coconut cream
  • TIP: if you don’t have vanilla coconut milk, use plain coconut milk but add 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup and 1 tsp. pure vanilla.
