Greek Yogurt Creme Brulee

Who loves their dessert? I know I sure do and let me tell you, this Greek Yogurt Creme Brulee does just the trick.   I am always looking for ways to make healthy alternatives to my favorite delicacies.  When I am looking for something decadent, this does it.  Wow your guests with this fancy dessert.  Impress them with your mad cooking skills while serving them something healthy at the same time!

Greek yogurt helps add many nutrients and improve a typical creme brulee.  It offers a high protein option with healthy probiotics that will promote gut health. Gut health is important for normal digestion and for keeping a healthy immune system.  The cherries do a world of good for the flavor in these.  They offer a savory sweetness that is hard to beat.  Cherries are also great for antioxidants, specifically anthocyanins.  Anthocyanins are what give cherries their gorgeous color.  They have been found to protect against heart disease, lower the risk of cancer, and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.  Cherries have significantly reduced the risk of cancer in various studies.  With Greek yogurt and cherries, you’ve turned your dessert into a healthy snack!

crem webTake a couple cups of nonfat, vanilla Greek yogurt and mix with some pitted and sliced cherries.  Divide this mixture into four mini, flame-proof bowls and cover with a layer of brown sugar.  Use a brulee torch or the broiler for the over for 2-3 minutes until the sugar caramelizes into a perfectly golden crust.

The Greek yogurt offers a perfect swap for the typical custard base of a creme brulee.  I love treating myself to a dish like this after a long day and a good meal.  It really is sweet and creamy enough to hit the spot. The best part about this is that you have created an elegant, noteworthy dessert in the comforts of your home.  You do not even have to have a brulee torch to make these!
