This dairy free Creme Caramel uses one of my favorite milk and cream substitudes: coconut milk. It also uses an excellent low-glycemic sugar substitude: Agave Nectar (derived from the plant from which tequila is made), making this a dessert you don’t have to feel guilty about!


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. Agave Nectar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (or more) agave nectar or maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • A little coconut oil (or other healthy oil) for greasing ramekins


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease ramekins with oil.
2. Beat eggs by hand with a fork or with an electric mixer for 1 minute.
3. Add the salt, sugar, vanilla, and coconut milk and stir until well blended.
4. Pour a little syrup into the bottom of each ramekin (enough to cover the bottom + up to 1 Tbsp. more).
5. Now pour egg and coconut mixture into each ramekin until 3/4 full. (Do not stir – syrup will naturally remain at the bottom of the ramekin.)
6. Place ramekins in a large glass baking dish or on a deep-sided roasting pan.
7. Pour some water into the bottom of the baking dish or pan – until water reaches at least 1/4 way up the side of the ramekin.
8. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a fork inserted into the pudding comes out clean. Allow to cool, then place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
9. To serve, run a knife around the inner rim of each ramekin (to loosen pudding).
10. Overturn the ramekins onto individual dessert plates. The pudding should fall out easily, with the syrup naturally dripping down over the coconut custard.
