Do you know what you miss most when you start a healthy diet? The classic desserts of your mom. And although mine is a flexible diet, I miss those rich and cozy recipes, that’s why I decided to reinvent some of them and make a healthy version of them.
This recipe is very simple, it only takes 4 ingredients, and the result is amazing. Extra creamy, with those classic bubbles of a good homemade flan and a rich caramel made from muscovado sugar. And finally, a bit of sugar free dulce de leche on top or coconut cream, which gives a great touch and combines perfectly with the softness of the flan.
Do you dare to try the recipe? You will not regret! If the tests tell me, send me an email or comment in the blog post how it came out, if you liked it, or that you would change it, I would love to listen to the advice of those who try my recipes! And if you share a photo on your Instagram or stories tag me like @gaspic_healthyberry so I can see it and I’ll share you in my stories!
Do not forget to share the recipe in your networks and with your loved ones, they will appreciate it as much as I do!
This flan is a very easy dessert, only 4 ingredients and it is the perfect dessert for any time of the day.
- 4 cups skim milk 1 liter
- 6 eggs
- 2/3 cups coconut or muscovado sugar 140g
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup coconut or muscovado sugar 70g
- 2 Tbsp water
In a hot pan put the sugar of the caramel and the water and leave to low fire, without stirring, until the sugar begins to melt. Stir gently until the caramel is ready and put in the molds, muffin molds or round molds (6cm in diameter). Let cool to temp. ambient.
Boil the milk with the sugar, stir every few seconds, and let cool. In another bowl beat the eggs together with the vanilla and pour over the milk.
Put the mixture on the caramel and cook in a water bath* until firm, for approximately 35-40 minutes.
Let cool in the refrigerator and enjoy with dulce de leche or cream.
* Baking in a water bath means that the mold of the flan is inside another mold, or a baking pan, with water. With only 1 or 2 fingers of water it’s enough.
