Desserts, this can be a tricky one since the most enjoyable desserts are high in fat.
Here is a healthy alternative, sugar-free, fat-free jelly in two-tone, served with a piece of canned fruit (in juice not syrup) at the bottom of the glass. Just enough to hit that sweet spot.
Serve it in your prettiest glasses, you can also add a dollop of low-fat custard to the top.
Watch out for the Fat free Jellies at your local grocer, I love this Simply delish Zero range. It needs no refrigeration, it’s suitable for vegetarians and diabetics, I’ts Gelatine free (Halaal approved), Tartarzine free with no added preservatives….did I mention it’s fat-free and sugar-free? and most importantly it taste great.
2 different packets of Jelly
I’ve used Pineapple and Cherry flavour.
1 tin of fruit pieces in juice
Make jelly according to the instructions on the back of the packet.
Place fruit on the bottom of your glasses, I’ve use a Pear and a cherry for each glass. Pour the Pineapple jelly half way into your glass. In the meantime vigorously mix the cherry jelly with an electric beater until the jelly are full of air bubbles and foamy. Top the glass with the rest of the cherry jelly and let it set. Chill in the fridge until serving.

This recipe has been haunting me for the last few weeks and finally I had some time on my hands to try it, Oh and there was a ripe avo!
I gave it to my husband to try, he thought it was the sugar-free diabetic mousse I bought the other day…see if you don’t tell they won’t know. *Naughty grin*
Despite the fact that I’m still sick and couldn’t exercise it was a good weekend. I had that long overdue haircut, my favorite food magazine was on sale and I bought 2 cups and saucers and 10 other side plates from an antique shop all for R 52.00. Great investment for the blog and the never-ending photo shoots!
Feel free to double or triple the recipe. I have used fructose but honey is also a great alternative.
Well my batch is in the fridge ready for tomorrow’s nights indulgence while I watch another awesome episode of Grey’s Anatomy.
Avocado Chocolate Mousse
1 ripe avocado
3 – 4 tbs cocoa powder (don’t be lazy, sift it first)
3 – 4 tbs fructose or honey
2.5 ml vanilla extract or essence
a pinch of salt
Scoop out the flesh of the avo and whiz it up with the rest of the ingredient in a food processor for a minute or two. Scrape the mousse from the sides and whiz for another minute until smooth. Taste and adjust the cocoa and sugar to taste.
