This dessert was inspired by one from the Slimming World Love Desserts recipe book but adapted to fit the ingredients I had in the house. I made it for a food tasting at my Slimming World group and was meant to use sliced mango for the base. I thought I had a tin of mango in the cupboard but the night before found it was mango puree, and I didn't have time to go shopping again, so I decided to use apples instead! It worked fine and while it isn't my favourite dessert I have ever made, it is pretty healthy and is a nice light alternative. The recipe I used was for individual desserts but I made this in one large dish as it is easier to share at food tasting.
3 apples, peeled and sliced
300g fat free Greek-style yogurt
4 tbsp sweetener
a few drops of vanilla flavouring
4 tbsp caster sugar
Each serving is 3 syns on all choices
Slice the apples and layer in the bottom of a dessert serving bowl.
Mix the yogurt, sweetener and vanilla and spoon over the apple.
Sprinkle the caster sugar over the top, and caramelise using a cook's blowtorch or a hot grill.
And that's all you need to do! The caramelised sugar on top gives a lovely snap when you dig in with a spoon and it's nice to have a slightly naughty topping on what is otherwise a very virtuous dessert.
I'm sending this to Dead Easy Desserts, hosted this month by Utterly Scrummy and created by Maison Cupcake, as this dessert is very easy and probably takes no more than about ten minutes to make.
