Coconut Banana Creme Brulee

This Gluten Free, Dairy Free recipe created by nutritionist Peggy Kostsopoulos is packed with the health benefits of coconut.

1 cup vanilla coconut milk
1 1/2 cups raw cashews
1/3 cup coconut sugar plus extra for topping
1 small ripe banana, whole
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp ground chia

In a high-speed blender or food processor, combine cashews, coconut milk, banana, coconut sugar, vanilla and coconut oil until smooth. Add ground chia and continue to blend.
Layer banana slices across bottom of four ramekins.
Pour mixture evenly over bananas.
Refrigerate for about an hour.
Remove from fridge, then sprinkle coconut sugar to completely cover top of each ramekin. Using a blowtorch, caramelize sugar until bubbling and golden. If you don’t have a blowtorch, place ramekins in oven under broiler for a few minutes.
Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
