Dairy-Free Life Part 4: Desserts – Dairy-Free Pineapple Crème Brûlée

Jump to recipe

My third dairy-free dessert course puts a summery twist on a classic. Its name often evokes feelings of fanciness, flair, and even a little intimidation. This dish seems like it requires a certain unattainable culinary acumen to prepare, but take heart: it’s not hard. It takes simple ingredients, a flair for creativity, and it just requires a bit of patience.

It’s a dairy-free pineapple crème brûlée. With a brown sugar-pineapple base, rich custard filling, and crunchy caramel topping, I savor every bite of this classic-turned-tropical treat. And rightfully so, given that it takes time to set. Because this recipe utilizes dairy-free heavy whipping cream instead of dairy whipping cream, it takes longer to set. Patience will be rewarded with this recipe, as there’s nothing more satisfying than breaking through the hard caramel topping to a rich vanilla custard and crushed pineapple base.
