I don't like to have too many posts without photos, but since I'm currently working on my Secret Squirrel project for Girls Stitch In and can't show you photos of that, I thought I'd share my current favourite dessert on the run. It's simple (you definitely don't have to be a Master Chef!!), quick to make, not too naughty and YUMMY!! :0)
Step one ...
... set out six ramekins. The ones I've used are about 3/4 of a cup, but a little larger would work OK too.
Step two ...
... divide a can of fruit evenly between the ramekins For this version, I used fruit salad, but I've also used peach slices and that worked well too ... I've got a can of dark cherries to try this week ... YUM! :0)
Step three ...
... make up a sachet of lite jelly (jello, maybe for some overseas??) this one was a berry flavour of some sort and I used peach and vanilla for the peach slice version. You can just pick your favourite, though.
... divide the jelly mix evenly into the ramekins and pop the into the fridge to set.
Step four ...
... into another ramekin, spoon some of your favourite vanilla yoghurt ... I added about a tablespoon per ramekin. Add a good shake of cinnamon and stir it through well. Then add a good dollop of cinnamon vanilla yoghurt into each ramekin and serve ... ENJOY!!
Told you it was super simple ... even junior chefs could handle this dessert. :0) All of the ingredients are lite, low fat and sugar-free, so, good for the waistline and by preparing them in the ramekins you aren't as tempted to have too large a serving or go back for seconds. Well ... that's the theory anyways! Tee! Hee! Hee! You can use all sorts of variations for the fruit and the jelly flavour. Let me know if you try my quick dessert idea and tell me what you think. :0)
I'm off to start organising my OPAM lists ... Sweet Peg and I will be adding a full list of all participants to our sidebars very soon so you can start visiting each other to give encouragement. :0) Right now, I'm off to play Polly. Have a great weekend - Til next time ...
