Many of us are fond of eating sweets. Actually, it’s the delicious way of enjoying traditional treats. Obviously, when talking about sweets, desserts are usual things that come up in our mind. Generally, deserts contain high amount of sugar and fats. When we go on a diet, we think we will be strong, and for a while we really manage to resist all these temptations of sweet foods and desserts. But sooner or later, we miss them too much, and that’s when we start cheating on our diet.
Many have fallen into this trap of thinking that any fat and sugar must be completely banned in order to lose weight, and not realizing that not a restrictive but rather an overall healthy and balanced diet is the key to successful weight loss and weight maintenance. And in a balanced diet, sweetness and desserts too have their cherished place.
Here are two low calorie dessert recipes that you won’t need to feel bad about. Both recipes make six servings.
Chocolate Cream With Strawberries
2 tbsp. pure cocoa
1 tsp. gelatine
300g soft tofu
1 tsp. vanilla essence
2 egg whites
1 tbsp. castor sugar
150 g strawberries (quartered), + 12 whole strawberries extra
mint leaves for decoration
Steps: low calorie dessert recipes
Dissolve the gelatine according to the instructions on the packet (for adding it to cold liquid).
Dissolve the cocoa in 60 ml hot water. Drain the tofu, mix it in your blender with the cocoa mixture and the vanilla essence until smooth. Fill the cream into a bowl, add the gelatine and mix well.
Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until it starts getting firm. Add the sugar and beat well until firm and glossy. Carefully mix the chocolate cream with a metal spoon.
Fill the quartered strawberries in six 250-ml dessert bowls and cover with the chocolate cream. Put into the fridge for a couple of hours until it is firm.
Decorate with the whole strawberries and mint leaves and serve.
Poached Apples In Grape And Mango Syrup
6 firm apples
1/2 l white grape juice
1/2 l mango juice
500 g white grapes
250 g low-fat yoghurt (plain or vanilla flavour)
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. honey
Put grape and mango juice with the cloves in a pot that is large enough for the apples. Peel the apples but leave the stems on, then put them in the pot with the juices.
Bring to boil, then cover with a lid and allow simmering on low heat for 35-40 minutes until the apples are soft. Remove the pot from the stove and let apples and syrup cool down.
Carefully move apples and syrup into a large bowl, cover with cling wrap and put in the fridge over night.
Bring the syrup to boil, then reduce the heat and have it simmering for 40 minutes. It should reduce to about one third of the liquid. Let it cool down slightly.
In the meantime, mix yoghurt, cinnamon and honey in a bowl. Place the apples each on a small plate, pour the syrup over them and arrange some grapes on the plate. Spoon the yoghurt mixture over the apples and serve immediately.
