In the ingredients we suggest that milk be skimmed so that the final result is lighter, but it is also possible to replace this with whatever milk you usually have.

Meanwhile break the eggs in a bowl to then beat them and add the sweetener of your choice, this may be liquid saccharin, stevia, etc, and also add the vanilla essence. The amount of this last ingredient must be adjusted to your own taste, depending on how intense you want the flavour of your homemade vanilla crème caramel to be.

Once the milk is fully integrated into the mix stop beating it and remove the foam which will have formed on the surface. Then pour the mixture into the mould. You can also use smaller moulds, cups or other containers and you'll have individual puddings.

Next you can put the diabetic pudding to set and cook in a bain-marie; you can choose whether to put the pan in the oven using a tray over water or in a pan on the hob.

You must leave the custard between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the size of the moulds, so it is completely set. To test it to ensure it is ready, pierce it with a toothpick, knife or other sharp tool and see if it comes out completely clean. Then you must leave it to cool to room temperature and finally put the crème caramel suitable for diabetics in the fridge to cool. It will be delicious and no one will notice it has no sugar!

and I see no caramel at all. I can make custard -- I need to know if a sugar substitute will caramelize as sugar does for creme caramel or creme brûlée. I see you try to address this before -- but just please answer is it possible to caramelize Stevia or Equal or Agave

Stevia cannot be caramelized, but Agave can! You can also substitute caramel for Agave syrup. Hope this works!
I was wondering why this recipe doesn't include the caramel that comes underneath the mixture and later over it.

Dear Mandy, This recipe doesn't have the caramel on top because caramel has sugar. You can take a look at how to make caramel in this other recipe and then substitute the sugar for the equivalent amount of sweetner or similar. Hope this helps!
