A super-silky custard studded with blue jewels and speckled with the bright orange zest. You could use blackberries, raspberries, or diced fresh peaches or nectarines in this also. What a delicious, treat…and the calorie count makes it even more beautiful!
1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon orange zest
4 eggs, beaten
Pinch of salt
2/3 cup Splenda Granular
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup fat-free half & half
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place six 4-ounce custard cups or ramekins in a large baking dish. Divide blueberries and orange zest among them and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, salt, Splenda, vanilla, half & half, and milk just until blended. Pour through a fine mesh sieve over the berries. (If you mix the preceding ingredients in a food processor or blender you don’t have to strain.)
Fill baking dish with hot water halfway up the sides of the cups. Bake for 25-40 minutes or until set, but still jiggly in the middle or a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from water bath to a wire rack and cool. Cover and chill. Makes six servings.
