LighterLife low calorie recipe: Peach & blueberry brûlées

July 9, 2014 - Desserts, Recipes

Peach & Blueberry BruleeDesserts don’t have to be full of calories. For a low calorie pud this summer, why not try this delicious recipe that’s full of fresh fruit.

Ingredients 

Method

  1. Cut the peaches in half, remove the stones and skin, and then cut the flesh into slices or chunks. Divide them between two individual shallow flameproof dishes or ramekins. Mix the blueberries in with the peaches and then grate the orange zest over the top.
  2. Cover the fruit with the yoghurt, using a palette knife or spoon to smooth and level the tops. Transfer to the refrigerator and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. When you’re ready to caramelize the brûlées, preheat the grill until it’s really hot. Sprinkle the sugar evenly over the top of the yoghurt to cover it thinly and then place the dishes under the hot grill, watching and turning them, so the sugar melts evenly. As soon as it turns golden brown and starts to caramelize, remove the dishes before the caramel burns. (You could use a cook’s blow torch instead for this step).
  4. Set aside to cool before serving, so the topping is hard and crisp. If wished, pop them back in the refrigerator until required.
