Rethinking Desserts

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:

  1. 80 to 100g Rapadura (depending on how sweet you like it)
  2. 600g frozen berries (or other frozen fruit)
  3. 2 egg whites
  4. 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (opt.)
  1. Grind Rapadura on speed 9 for 20 seconds.
  2. Add berries and grind for 30 seconds on speed 9, scraping down as needed.
  3. Insert the butterfly, add remaining ingredients and whip for 3 minutes on speed 4.

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.

Other ideas include:

  1. Baking whole apples – use a variety like Jonathan apples. Core, peel, and fill the center with some butter, nuts, and spices and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately half an hour
  2. Hot Chocolate! Open your mind to a drink for dessert. Use an unsweetened plant-based milk like almond or coconut heated with raw cacao.
  3. Yoghurt Sorbet. Use three frozen bananas blended in a high-powered blender with 1 cup of whole plain yoghurt and 1 cup frozen raspberries or flesh of amango. Google ’nice’ cream for more inspiration and to see the consistency to achieve. This is a real winner! Enjoy !
