Banana Date Crème Brulee

This healthy alternative to the classic crème brulee is just as impressive as the original but packed with way more flavour! Perfect after dinner with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 55 min cooling
Makes: 6 servings

1 cup pitted dates
1 cup of low fat evaporated milk
¾ cup of chopped banana (the more ripe the more flavour!)
½ cup low fat milk (not skim)
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
2 whole eggs and 2 egg whites
1 tbsp sugar for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

  • Combine and process all ingredients except for the eggs and egg whites in a food processor for 2 minutes until smooth. Add eggs and egg whites and continue to process until completely smooth (the mixture should be slightly thicker but will look the same as before you added the eggs).

  • (Don't worry, while the mixture should thicken slightly when you add the eggs it will still look like this both before and after they have been added)

  • Grease 6 single-serve ramekins or oven proof cups and divide the banana and date mix equally between them. Place ramekins in an oven dish and fill with warm water until it comes halfway up the side of the ramekins.

  • Bake for 55 minutes or until a knife inserted into the centre of the brulee comes out clean. Once cooked, remove ramekins from the oven dish and sprinkle the top of each brulee with a thin layer of sugar.

  • Using a kitchen blow torch, melt the sugar to form a layer of toffee on top of the brulee. (This can also be achieved by placing the ramekins under a grill for a few minutes if you don’t have a blow torch).

  • Allow the brulee to cool slightly so that the toffee forms a hard layer on top. Serve warm in the ramekins, either alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
