Gingerbread Crème Brûlée : Autumn / Fall Dessert : Low Carb : Keto

For me by putting this creamy custard, and gingerbread flavour together, makes a nice Autumnal (Fall) low carb/keto dessert that brings a well-spiced finish to your evening meal. For those in the Southern Hemisphere I'm sure it could be enjoyed in the Spring season too! 

Serves Six
3g net carbs per serving
425 ml (1¾ cups) heavy (double) whipping cream
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tbsp (25 g) erythritol
¼ tsp vanilla extract
4 egg yolks
½ clementine (optional)

This recipe uses pumpkin pie spice. If you can't find it, you can make your own by using this recipe or by mixing equal amounts of ginger, cinnamon and ground cloves.

Recipe Instructions
can be seen here

Small and sweet, clementines are a hybrid of tangerines and oranges. Easy to peel and exceptionally sweet, there are over 20 varieties of clementine. The fruit will keep in the fridge for up to one week.

Some recipes you may like to try:
Clementine Almond Cake, it's low carb and flourless - more details here
Christmas Salad, it's so colourful and low in carbs too - more details here
Clementine Prosecco Cocktail, it's nice but 13.5g carbs per serving - more details here

If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

What a beautiful seasonal recipe - I'm going to try this one out. I don't know about the rest of the world but it seems appropriate to celebrate seasonal changes this year and I'm even counting down to a big Christmas even if we are home alone! Keep these great recipes coming!

I have made crême brulée sometimes it has turned out quite well, never really well, but more than once the eggs have almost scrambled. Perhaps it's time to try again and this seems like an appealing variation on an old favourite.

Oh I love those little clementines.

Jeanie said...

This sounds really delicious. I've never made creme brulee before and have always been eager to try but a little intimidated. Maybe this would be a good one to start with.
