Keto Creme Brulee

Creme Brulee is a dessert that I hadn’t tried until I was an adult. I wondered why anyone would want a dessert that was purposefully scorched. I mean, seriously! Until I had it…. And then I knew.

When I went keto, I stopped indulging in my creme brulee delights, however. I set out on an adventure to create a keto creme brulee dessert so that I could enjoy one of my favorite desserts again. This keto creme brulee dessert does not disappoint. Not even a little bit. It is just as sweet, tasty, creamy and crunchy as the original.

Is the Top of Keto Creme Brulee Supposed to Look Burnt?

Yes, the top of a creme brulee is supposed to be burnt. You literally take a flame to it and burn the sweetener on top of it.

I’ve always wondered why they burn it, though. Until I realized that it was actually the sweetener that was being burnt. Did you know that “creme brulee” actually means “scorched creme” in French? I was today years old when I learned that.

So, what is the best way to scorch the top? Using your torch, start a fair distance away. Slowly move closer as you see fit. Most creme brulees will not look totally uniform and that is the beautiful part. But starting further away and moving closer is the best way to make sure you don’t over burn your creme brulee.

How Many Carbs in Keto Creme Brulee?

This keto creme brulee boasts a measly 5 net carbs. Now, that is not bad at all for a delicious dessert.

How to Store Creme Brulee?

Assuming you have leftovers which is highly unlikely, you can keep them in their molds and just cover them. Make sure to store them in the fridge, however. If properly stored, this should last 3-4 days and be just as delicious as when you first baked them.

What to Eat With Keto Creme Brulee?

You don’t NEED to eat anything with these delicious creme brulee desserts. I do, however, have two things that I certainly enjoy eating them with, however.

I like to add berries, on the top and on the side. I also like to whip up a homemade batch of keto whipped cream and put a heap onto it while still warm and let it slowly melt.

SO YUMMY!
