Carol’s Keto Custard 2.0.

IMG_1606

I posted a recipe for a keto custard a few weeks ago on my keto Instagram account. After several tries I was confident in the recipe I posted, but it was still a little egg-y. I had trouble sleeping last night and the thought came to me to look-up creme brûlée recipes to perfect my custard recipe – and it worked! The creme brûlée recipes I found only use egg yolk – DUH! Why didn’t I think of that?! By eliminating the white part of the egg you get rid of the egg-y taste and are left with yummy, creamy, richness!

Of course this inspiration came to me when I was out of vanilla extract, thanks Tony. But, I did have some pumpkin spice syrup on hand – so, since we’re on the tail-end of pumpkin season I decided to give it one last HOORAY!
