Re thinking deserts
A theory of mine is you don’t eat badly all day. There are times where its difficult to make a food choice you may regret later. Mine is after dinner. Lately I have been reaching for chips and lollies and ice-cream. I want to practice what I preach and so I stopped buying these things at the supermarket (say no once as knowing they are in the house, you have to keep saying no!) so how I can I replace these unhealthy snacks.
Its interesting when I go out to dinner I would rather have a entree than a desert, but not at home. I love a good dessert. I subscribe to Sugar Wrap newsletter which is inspired by the The Sugar Film .
Victoria Thaine who contributes, says there’s no need to deprive yourself ( agree!), it just takes a little mental shift and some creativity. She goes onto to say once you reduce sugar in your diet, and the sweet treats you used to love, well you’ll actually find them too sweet (I hope so!)
For some reason I have been craving something cold so I made Fruity Dream. I made it in my thermomix but you can easily make it wihout one.
Here is the recipe:
Voila! A dreamy dessert! Decorate with insecticide free rose petals if you feel the need.
You can use practically any type of frozen fruit, or a mixture of different fruits. You can also use honey instead of Rapadura to sweeten – use about 60g of honey, or to taste, added with the fruit.
