Yogurt Brulee with Blueberries


Preparation Time:
Cooking Time:

This breakfast treat looks so elegant, your family will think it took hours instead of minutes to prepare. You can also serve this dessert, but caution is advised: You may be tempted to eat dessert first!

2 cups fresh or 4 cups unsweetened frozen blueberries, thawed
1 tsp. grated lemon zest
2 (8 ounce) containers fat-free or low-fat vanilla yogurt (2 cups)
2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. brown sugar

Preheat broiler. Put four 1-cup custard cups or ramekins on a broilerproof baking sheet. In a medium bowl, stir together blueberries and lemon zest. To, assemble, spoon 1/2 cup blueberry mixture into each custard cup. Top each with about 1/2 cup yogurt and 2 tsp. brown sugar. Broil about 4 inches from heat for 2 to 4 minutes, or until brown sugar is melted and bubbly. Watch carefully to keep sugar from burning.

Cook's Tip:
One way to thaw frozen blueberries is in the microwave. Measure them into a microwave safe container. Microwave on 50% power (medium) for 4 to 5 minutes (no stirring needed). This method preserves the juice which you can spoon in with the berries.
