Chai "Creme" Brulee

So I was reading the new issue of Clean Eating Magazine (GREAT issue!!) and decided I would make the Chai "Creme" Brulee for dessert one night. I am not a fan of tofu but let me tell you this recipe is delicious and an excellent substitute for the real creme brulee at only 126 calories, 3g fat, 1g carb, 0g fiber and 7g protein. Even my husband liked it :) Enjoy!

1 cup of 1% milk
3 chai tea bags
3 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
2 cardamom pods
8oz firm tofu, drained of all water
1 egg
2 egg whites
1/3 cup plus 2 TB organic evaporated cane juice divided (this is a sugar)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a small saucepan heat milk to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from heat and add tea bags, cloves, cinnamon stick and cardamom. Cover and let stand for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile in a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine tofu, egg, egg whites and 1/3 cup can juice. Process until VERY smooth.
  4. Remove tea bags and spices from milk. With food processor running slowly pour milk through feed tube until combined. Divide mixture equally among 6 ramekins. Place ramekins in a baking dish and fill dish with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  5. Bake in oven for 18-22 minutes until set. Remove from oven and chill until serving. To serve top each creme with 1tsp cane juice and place under preheated broiler until crystals melt and become browned.
