Low fat?              Check!
Delicious?           Check!
Super Easy?       Check!

I try and experiment with at least two new recipes each week – some work and many don’t! But I had to share this simple, delicious and low fat recipe that I tried during the week, as it not only worked but it ticked all of the other boxes too.

It really is a dessert for dummies - super easy to make and looks impressive served up to guests or family alike. Who doesn't love a recipe that makes you look like Martha Stewart with zero effort?!

This dessert is light and tangy and would be perfect for summer bbq weather – so my friends in Europe, the US and Canada enjoying summer at the moment – perfect for you!

The recipe has been taken from Taste which has the most fabulous recipes – if you have not discovered it – bookmark the Site as you will love it!

You’ll need
  • 85g packet mango jelly crystals (jello for my American friends)
  • 1 cup boiling water 
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 1 cup fat-free natural yoghurt
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • 2 passionfruit, halved (or passionfruit pulp, it is not passionfruit season here at the moment)
Only a few simple ingredients for this delicious dessert

Method:
  1. Combine jelly crystals and boiling water in bowl (ensure that it is heatproof) and stir until crystals have dissolved
  2. Add 1/2 cup cold water and stir to combine
  3. Refrigerate for approx 30 minutes
  4. Place yoghurt in a separate bowl and stir until smooth
  5. Add yoghurt to jelly mix and whisk together until smooth and no lumps remain
  6. Pour mixture in to preferred serving dish – I used four 1-cup capacity serving glasses
  7. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours or until set.
  8. Top with banana and drizzle with passionfruit pulp before serving
  9. Enjoy!!!
    Delicious and Simple Dessert

    Tips:
    • If you are diabetic, you could use diet jelly crystals
    • You could try this with a different flavoured jelly crystals (jello)
    • Try topping with cream, shaved chocolate or berries for a different take on this dessert Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did. Happy weekend all.
