Okay. I’m not going to lie; I love custard. I mean, I really love custard.
But when you have to wait for it to set? Nope.
May I introduce you to keto Crème Anglaise? This sauce is basically a pourable vanilla custard. (No, that doesn’t mean that you can drink it from the jug)
It’s perfect over fresh berries or as a side sauce. It's like creamy vanilla fat bomb in liquid form - almost zero-carb and high in healthy fats!
When I was researching the traditional recipes for Crème Anglaise, I calculated the sugar to sweetener ratio and the average came out at 6 Tablespoons. I found this waaaay too sweet, but my tastebuds have changed a lot over the years and I have gone as low as 1 Tablespoon of sweetener in this sauce. You may want to use any low-carb sweetener to taste.
If you can't eat dairy, full-fat coconut milk is a great alternative to cream. Enjoy!
