I adore this dish – it is so easy to make and tastes very naughty but it isn’t!
Whilst following a slimming plan – any plan, I think it is important to factor in little treats, so that your journey is not ‘all or nothing’. Yes, you may lose weight quicker if you stick to salads and no treats (or you may not – sometimes it can act against you to not have a more varied diet!) But I know that if I get my sweet tooth fix now and again, I will be more likely to stick with the plan and not go off the rails. I have denied myself in the past and it never works – ultimately at some stage my inner toddler rebels, stamps her feet and demands all the food she has declared off limits, then eats them all at once!
So let me share with you a tasty, sweet treat that is also guilt free! It compliments the Slimming World plan (which is the one I follow) and is only 4.5 Syn per portion!
Once the fruit has been baked in the oven for about 30 minutes, spoon it into individual ramekins then crush one Amaretti biscuit over the top of each ramekin (the amaretti are only 1 syn per biscuit!) Then, return the ramekins to the oven, uncovered for a further 10 minutes.
When done, remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool (or enjoy warm if you can’t wait and are careful of the hot fruit!) This is great with a dollop of fat free fromage frais on the top (Syn free) as a nice end to a meal.
Do you have a sweet tooth? How do you get your fix in a slimming friendly way? Let me know!
