We never get around to taking photos of the ice cream before they get eaten, maybe next time. I must admit ice cream is one of my favourite desserts and I always tend to want a little sweet hit after my main meal. Ricotta is naturally low in fat and gives the really creamy taste…… Continue reading Rich Ricotta and Rhubarb Ice Pops
Photo to follow Sometimes you want a naughty treat without the calories/Syns but only ice cream will do. I find these are a good substitute. You can get lollypop moulds in loads of places nowadays. Kids will love them as well. Makes about 6 lollies Slimmingworld Syns = Approximately 3 if you have as your…… Continue reading Cheeky Chupalicious Chocolate orange ice cream pops
Photo to follow next time I do them as the camera wasn’t ready and it would have melted. Nothing to do with the fact that I had shovelled a portion down my throat before we had chance to take a picture honest! Ha ha Sometimes you just have that creamy citrus craving that you could…… Continue reading LUDICROUSLY LUSCIOUS LEMONY YUMMY YOGHURT ICE CREAM
Photo to follow the next time as the greedy devils ate them before we had chance to take one. Seriously these are not just for chocolate monster slimmers, they are an all round winner for all the family. Here is a great way to get your chocolate fix without all of the fat and sugar. …… Continue reading Heavenly Healthy (ish) Chocolate Brownies with a Quirky Quarky Chocolate Frosting.
These truly delicious. They can be done in the microwave for approx 45-50 seconds or 6 minutes in the oven. Light and fluffy on the outside and ridiculously rich and runny inside. OK so I can’t really offer you a healthier twist other than potentially reducing the sugar with some kind of baking sweetener…… Continue reading DANGEROUSLY DECADENT DARK CHOCOLATE AND SALTED CARAMEL GOOEY MELTING POTS
Believe it or not this light cheescake type dessert is reduced fat, gluten free, reduced sugar but still feels a little bit naughty. It doesn’t set very firm so it either needs some gelatin or alternatively could have eggs added to it and baked but personally I prefer these. To reduce the calories even more…… Continue reading Silky and Sharp Strawberry, Rhubarb and Ginger Reduced Fat Cheescake
I’m afraid to say this is not quite fitting with the healthier recipes. All I can say is that everyone that has tasted them so far has had a very big smile on their face. Not to be given to children or they will probably be bouncing off the walls as they are so luxurious.…… Continue reading BONKERS BILLIONAIRE MALTYLICIOUS SHORTBREAD
Super refreshing and healthy. Naturally sweet so no added sugar. Just watch out for the brain freeze. I made this in my ice-cream maker but you could puree it in a blender of some description but keep on stirring it every so often to prevent too many crystals. Tip; a chef told me to use…… Continue reading MAJESTIC MANGO, PASSION FRUIT AND LIME SORBET
Although I’m rather partial to a nice skinny latte I don’t actually like coffee desserts or chocolates. I was given a couple of little bottles of orange liqueur on my honeymoon in Rome and wanted to do something different with it. One evening I was having an Italian themed dinner and I wanted a nice…… Continue reading Cheeky Chocolate Orange Tiramisu
This really should come with a government health warning. OMG talk about scrumdelicioso! These have gone down an absolute treat. Be careful as the mixture won’t even make it to the oven as you will be eating it straight from the bowl and end up with it all round your mouth. Best bet is to lock…… Continue reading Oozy Gooey Double Chocolate Orange Cookies. Oh so sinful but worth the penance!
