How to Make Our Banana Brulee Recipe with Vanilla Cream

Bananas Brulee with Vanilla Cream

First off, let’s talk about the banana brulee component of this dessert. You’ll want to invest in a kitchen torch to get the best results. Don’t worry; they’re neither that expensive ($12) nor scary (they use butane instead of propane as their fuel source). You can make this recipe by using your oven’s broiler, but the torch is actually pretty fun to use!

After you’ve picked up your torch, split the bananas in half lengthwise and sprinkle them with the coconut sugar. Bananas are naturally sweet, but you need a little added sugar to get them to brown and caramelize under the flame. Then, use the torch until the sugar is bubbly and caramelized, turning a beautiful golden brown. The sugar will harden as it cools. That’s it! So easy, right?

Bananas Brulee with non-dairy Vanilla Cream

While you’re waiting for the bananas to cool, whip up the vanilla cream. You can mix the coconut cream, maple syrup, and vanilla bean paste by hand, but we like using a hand mixer or a stand mixer with a whisk attachment. It incorporates extra air into the cream, making it light and fluffy.

And there you have it! A super simple, easy-to-make, healthy banana brulee recipe. We can’t wait to hear what you think about this delicious dessert!
