Trust us, your taste buds will thank you. 

Tahitian Vanilla Creme Anglaise what you will need:


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes



1 cup whole milk

½ cup heavy cream

1 Tahitian vanilla bean (we used authentic vanilla from Tahiti for this recipe but other types of vanilla beans will work too)

Pinch of Greek flake sea salt

3 egg yolks

¼ cup white granulated sugar


DIRECTIONS to make your Tahitian vanilla crème anglaise

  1. In a medium saucepan combine milk, heavy cream, and scraped vanilla seeds along with the vanilla bean. Bring the cream to just hot enough on low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk the egg yolks along with the sugar until pale and light.
  3. Pour a small portion of hot cream over the egg yolk mixture and whisk it vigorously. Add this mixture back to the saucepan with the remaining cream.
  4. Add a pinch of Greek salt and continuously stir the cream with a wooden spoon. Cook the cream for 4-5 minutes until the cream turns a little thicker and coats the back of the wooden spoon.
  5. Transfer the prepared cream to a glass bowl, cover it, and set it aside to bring it to room temperature.
  6. Drizzle the Creme Anglaise over your favorite cakes, tarts, berries, etc., to enjoy!
