{Gluten Free and Vegan} Creme Brulee

Hold on a moment. Seriously? Vegan Creme Brulee?  This is revolutionary!  Go Dairy Free does it again. I love her cookbook and blog! It's dairy-free paradise. (recipe and photo from

To note, this vegan crème brûlée is also gluten-free, peanut-free, and soy-free. We like the flavor and texture that cashew butter adds, but if nuts are completely out for you, sunflower seed butter could work in a pinch. Just note that it will change the flavor profile.

If any of the ingredients are unfamiliar to you, see the post above for details. This recipe was created by Ella of Pure Ella and shared with us in sponsorship by So Delicious Dairy Free.
Serves: 4 single serve creme brulee
  1. In a small dish whisk the starch into ½ cup milk beverage.
  2. In a medium pot, whisk the remaining 1-1/2 cups milk beverage, coconut milk, cashew butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, and agar. If desired, you can blend the ingredients with an immersion blender to remove all clumps, or whiz them in a blender.
  3. Turn the heat on to medium and continue whisking while bringing the mixture to nearly boiling.
  4. Slowly, whisk in the milk-starch mixture.
  5. Continue cooking while whisking for about 3 minutes being careful that the mixture doesn’t boil but stays very hot. It will thicken quickly.
  6. Pour the mixture into four crème brûlée dishes or ramekins, they will be quite full, and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  7. Just before serving, remove the crème brulees from the refrigerator and let them stand for 5 to 10 minutes to warm up the dishes slightly.
  8. Sprinkle each with 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar over tops and using a torch, melt the sugar to form a crispy layer on top. If you don't have a torch, position a rack on the top level in your oven. Turn the oven on to broil, and place the ramekins under the broiler for 2 minutes (this method may soften the crème brûlée a touch).
