What do you think of this for a ‘virtually fat free’ dessert? It’s one of the recipes from the How to Eat Loads and Stay Slim how to eat loads and stay slim.com. I thought you might like a sneak preview. Please do go and check out the others when you have a spare moment.
Fruit Kebabs with Stawberry Coulis and Chocolate Dip – serves four
These are quite impressive for a deliciously light summer afternoon dessert – when you have guests coming.
Ready in about thirty minutes (not including chilling dips)
For the kebabs
- 10 or so strawberries
- 2 bananas
- 1 lime
- Dusting of icing sugar to serve
- Mint leaves to garnish
For the coulis
- 225 g (9 oz) of strawberries
- 1 orange (2 tangerines work well too)
- 1 – 2 tsps artificial sweetener
For the chocolate dip
- 1 pot of natural fat free yoghurt (I use Total 0 per cent)
- 1 heaped teaspoon of Nutella or any other chocolate spread (but not so heaped you can get the whole jar on it). It’s easier if the Nutella isn’t too cold.
NB Prepare the coulis and chocolate dip first so they can be refrigerated.
For the Coulis
Hull and roughly chop strawberries. Grate orange zest and squeeze orange. Put all the coulis ingredients into a blender and blitz till smooth. Chill. (That’s the coulis, not you. Though by all means chill too if you want to)
For the chocolate dip
Mix together yoghurt and Nutella vey well, then return to fridge to chill. (tiny strips of lime can be used for garnish – if you don’t have any mint handy).
For skewers – do them just prior to eating
Hull and chop the strawberries, peel the bananas and cut into chunks. Grate the lime zest, cut the lime in half and squeeze out juice. Thread strawberries and bananas alternately on to skewers, sprinkle with lime juice and zest, and then dust with icing sugar.
Very yummy and so virtuous you can put your halo on while you are eating them 🙂
