2 Amazingly Simple Weight Loss Recipes For Desserts

Weight loss diet – should it mean no desserts at all? A perfect diet
plan has to cater for a dessert at least  once in a while, if not once a day,
so that your taste buds don’t starve even if you are on a diet-plan to lose weight.
In fact there are plenty of low-fat desserts that can be prepared without
compromising on taste.

Creamy Fig Dessert

We can prepare a mouth-watering creamy diet-dessert with fresh figs
without even a hint of cream. Chopped figs make it feel crunchy,
and low-fat thickened milk gives it a creamy touch. Milk strengthens our bones and
gives the much needed protein.

Thickened low-fat milk: 600ml
Finely chopped fresh fig: 250g
Juice of half lemo
Cornflour: 1tbsp
Sugar: 2tbsp
Lemon zest for flavor: of one lemon


A few round slices of fig and roasted crushed almonds


1. Pour the thickened milk into a saucepan and
bring it to a boil. Put the burner on low heat. Add lemon juice  to the
boiling milk, very little at a time while continuously stirring.
2. Milk will curdle a little. Take care not to put the lemon juice
all at once, otherwise  entire milk will curdle and the recipe does not call
for it.
3. Mix corn flour in a little water. Pour it into
the thickened milk while stirring continuously. Add sugar and simmer for a
minute or two.
4. Add chopped figs and fold them without breaking the pieces.
Chill in the refrigerator. Garnish with fig slices and serve.
