This Chai-spiced Vegan Crème Brûlée is seriously incredible. Completely free from dairy and eggs, it still has a perfect, soft, custard-like filling that's just like the real thing. 


  • 1 13.5oz can full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Arbor Teas Masala Chai Tea
  • ½ cup canned coconut cream
  • ¼ cup almond milk 
  • 1 tbsp vanilla bean paste or extract
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • Pinch sea salt


  1. Pour coconut milk into a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add tea, stir and simmer at low heat for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat, strain and let cool.
  2. When cooled, add to a blender with coconut cream, vanilla, 1/4 cup of caster sugar, maple syrup, almond milk, arrowroot and salt. Blend until well combined. 
  3. Pour into saucepan and heat over medium. Let mixture thicken (it will take about 10-20 minutes over heat), stirring frequently to prevent burning. When the mixture is somewhere between a pudding and a loose custard (see post for visual guide), remove from heat. 
  4. Immediately transfer to ramekins. Chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably 6-8. 
  5. When finished chilling, remove from refrigerator and top with an even layer of remaining sugar. Use a blowtorch to caramelize sugar until it forms a solid layer. Enjoy!
