Vegan Dessert Recipes – Comforting Creamy Caramel

Only a slice of this vegan caramel is bound to go a long way!

Here’s a light lip-smacking vegan version of the classic creme caramel. Easy to prepare and absolutely delicious , this vegan flan is going to start a new love affair!

Light, rich, warm, sweet are just a few words to describe this  healthy vegan treat made with Tofu that gives this custard a smooth silky texture . This recipe is a departure from the classic caramel which is sugar heavy. This vegan take on the classic is a delight not only for vegans but for the calorie conscious, too.

Although this recipe uses soy milk, feel free to use almond milk instead with a drop or two of almond extract for that almond punch.

Substitute  soy milk with coconut milk to make a vegan version of Flan de coco, a Puerto Rican classic. Whatever you do, just remember that you can’t go wrong coz you’ll always end up with a great healthy vegan dessert.

So here’s to a vegan caramel flan to indulge yourself this weekend.
