Low(er)-Fat Creme Brulee

1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters or other fat-free egg product
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 cups 2% Milk (don't use skim, it makes it too weird)
1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee powder
2 tablespoons flavored liquor: Triple Sec, Kahlua etc. (optional)
3/4 package of unflavored gelatine

Start the kettle boiling on the stove and preheat the oven to 300
degrees F. In a medium metal bowl, combine Egg Beaters and sugar,
whisk until well blended, add instant coffee and flavorings, then
whisk again strenuously until slightly thickened and smooth.
Combine a little of the milk and all the in a small bowl and whisk
in an animated fashion. Heat the remainder of the milk in a heavy
saucepan over medium-high heat whisking gently. Once it begins to
foam, mix in mixture. Whisk it like you mean it. Once the gelatine
is dissolved, SLOWLY pour it into the egg mixture while (you guessed
it) whisking like you've never whisked before- this keeps it from
scrambling and getting grainy. Pour the final mixture into ramekins
(stop whisking first) and place them in a baking dish. Fill the
dish with boiling water until it reaches half-way up the sides of
the ramekins and bake in the oven for about 35-45 minutes. Then
chill in the refrigerator for several hours (3-4+). Garnish with
sugar then apply blowtorch or try using dark chocolate shavings,
raspberries, sprigs of fresh mint etc.
