Fat Free Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulée

Fat Free Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulée, dessert, healthy, slimming, low fat, During January I have been trying to eat a little healthier to reverse the excesses of Christmas. Last week I re-created an Apple & Chocolate Swiss Roll that I once had as child and this week it was time to put another food memory into action. Inspired by a cook’s blow torch that hubby gave me for Christmas I decided to make Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulée that I’d had once at a student party (too many years ago to mention)! Being so long ago I have no idea if it was cream, crème fraiche or yogurt that was in the large dish with the crispy sugar top but as real Greek yogurt is so very creamy I decided it would be perfect. I used fat free Greek yogurt to be extra saintly and in the original dish I had I think there were just grapes but I decided to add orange segments which go really well and add extra vitamin C.

Fat Free Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulee - so easy and deliciious! Fab Food 4 Al


So what was my family’s verdict? Well my son said he wouldn’t eat it as I knew he didn’t eat yogurt! After a bit of reasoning and telling him it didn’t taste like just a yogurt I managed to get him to try a spoonful – the next time I looked round there was an empty ramekin! My daughter and hubby also loved it and I loved that fact that I’d managed to give my family a delicious, nutritious and healthy dessert.

I am entering my Fat Free Greek Yogurt Fruit Brulée into Treat Petite a challenge run by Cakeyboi and Baking Explorer where the theme is “healthy treats”. Next I’m entering Simple & in Season because my dessert uses luscious winter oranges; this challenge is run by Ren Behan and hosted this month by Maison Cupcake. Finally I’m entering Credit Crunch Munch which I run with Helen of Fuss Free Flavours who is hosting this month.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Charlie:-)

    Creme brulee is my favourite dessert but definitely my downfall because I never stop at one. I am determined to try this option which sounds just as delicious and far healthier for my arteries!

    1. Camilla

      Oh do, I’m sure you’ll lovel it:-)

  10. Natally

  15. Ursula Hunt

    Good luck in the categories you are entering, I am sure you will get a good response

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Ursula, sometimes there is a prize but mostly it’s just like a beauty contest without a winner – it’s just fun sharing and taking part:-)

  16. Stuart Vettese

    This sounds really healthy and delicious Camilla. Thanks for entering them into Treat Petite.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Stuart – a pleasure;-)

  17. Chris

    It looks very yummy to me. I would gladly take a bowl of it … and it probably wouldn’t harm me.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Chris – no it definitely wouldn’t harm you:-)

  18. Maya Russell

    You are full of fabulous ideas! Never thought of this.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Maya, not my idea but I have eaten a lot of things which I’m always on a quest to re-create:-)

  19. Jen @ Blue Kitchen Bakes

    Love how simple this, much easier than a normal creme brulee and looks just as delicious, need to add a blowtorch to my kitchen 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jen, yes I love simple dishes. Mine is a tiny little blow torch from Home Bargains (£5) but perfect for making these little desserts:-)

  20. Bintu @ Recipes From A Pantry

    Right up my street Camilla – although I am a bit sacred f the blow torch/

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Bintu – you really wouldn’t be afraid of the tiny little blow torch I have, flame on a par with a lighter:-)

  21. Sarah @tamingtwins

    Oh this is such a super idea Camilla, perfect for my ‘lighter’ January diet. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sarah, yes I’m trying to be good this January too:-)

  22. Paul Wilson

    Must look around for a cook’s blowtorch.

    1. Camilla

      Mine was £5 in Home Bargains, had wanted one for ages!

  23. Elizabeth

    Oh this sounds so good! Yes please, pass over a ramekin for me will you? 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Aah thanks Elizabeth:-)

  24. Lilinha Espindula

    I love creme brulee but never thought about making with Greek yogurt. I should be trying it soon! x

    1. Camilla


  25. Diana

    That is my kind of dessert and the topping looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it 🙂

    1. Camilla


  26. William Gould

    Wow! So simple, and easy to prepare in advance when you have a spare few minutes!

    1. Camilla

      You don’t want to make it too far in advance or the crispy sugar topping will melt into the yogurt, but still tastes good:-)

  27. Sarah Maison Cupcake

    I must confess I bought a cook’s blow torch and too scared to put any gas in it incase I blow the kitchen up or something. I need someone who knows what they’re doing to show me how to fill it up!

    Never thought of this, great idea!

    1. Camilla

      Hubby has done all the filling from the small can of Universal gas lighter refill we have for the stick lighter we already had. It looked quite easy – get your hubby onto otherwise, they love playing with fire!

      1. Sarah Maison Cupcake

        Thanks for your entry, round up now up at http://maisoncupcake.com/winter-sustenance-simple-season-january-round/ 🙂

  28. Cherished By Me

    Not tried this with fat free yogurt, I’ve used full fat 🙂 I will be off to try it. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Camilla

      I was dithering between the 2 types when I went shopping but in the interests of “trying” to have a healthier January I plumped for the 0% fat, oh and it was on offer;-)

  29. Anne Wallwin

    great idea for a quick and healthy pudding. I think my kids would like them as well.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, yes hopefully they will:-)

  30. kathderoet

    yum, this looks so fab, you are very clever. x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, well I can’t really take the credit for being clever just having a very long memory LOL:-)

  31. Ursula Hunt

    great to have a good dessert recipe, I am now on a flat tummy quest

    1. Camilla

      Thanks:-) Yes I know that feeling too well having been given so many boxes of marzipan this Christmas!

  32. Jan @GlugofOil

    Lovely recipe – I could eat that right now!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jan:-)

  33. Paul Wilson

    Great idea.

  34. Janie

    That is down right genius lady! Creme Brulees are divine but loaded with naughtiness, and actually, it really is all about the crunch of that topping. Consider it pinned!
    Janie x

    1. Camilla

      Aaw thanks Janie:-)

  35. Fuss Free Helen

    Delicious and simple Camilla. I quite possibly will be making it with banana this evening.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Helen, bananas would be lovely too:-)

  36. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    I love this recipe! My mother in law makes something very similar and it always goes down well 🙂 you did a great job with that crispy topping!!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Becca, I enjoyed using my mew toy:-)

  37. Vohn McGuinness

    Now that is my kind of yoghurt! What a genius idea to give it a creme brûlée topping! I love it!

    1. Camilla

      Thank Vohn – yes it’s so quick and easy too:-)

  38. Deena kakaya

    im totally sold with that pic! x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Deena, my new camera is helping:-)

  39. Helen

    This looks delicious! I love anything bruleed.
