Low sugar dessert ideas,diabetic dessert ideas,low fat dessert ideas,guilt free dessert ideas
Dessert is not part of our daily meal at all. Dessert is something which we have on special occasions or when we have guest at home. Anything sweet either cookie, bars or sweets i serve in small portions during snack time and not after meals(Why to unnecessarily add up on calories). I made this dessert when my kids asked for a cold ice cream treat, it tasted good and definetly a healthier alternate to icecream. Also it is all natural without any additives, refined sugar and all the goodness of fruit. You can also try this guilt free dessert and let me know how you liked it.

 Preparation Time - 15 Minutes

Cooking Time - 15 Minutes

Serves - 8


 Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice - 2 Cups( I used 4 Juice Oranges)

Agar agar powder - 1 Tbsp

Strawberry, Blueberry , Cherry Pitted and chopped - 2 Cups

Strained yogurt - 1 Cup

Xylitol - 3 Tbsp or Raw Sugar (more for a sweeter version)

Vanilla extract(optional) - 1/2 tsp


1) Add agar agar powder to orange juice and keep it in medium heat in a stove and stir till the agar agar is completely dissolved.

2) In eight small cups pour the orange mixture and set it to cool, either you can put it in the refrigerator or once the mixture comes to room temperature the agar agar will automatically thicken.

3) Once this orange jelly is completely cooled layer the chopped berries and cherries on top of it.

4) For preparing strained yogurt either use a strainer or use a thin cloth and tie the yogurt inside and all the excess water in the yogurt will drain out and you will get a thick cream. To this add the xylitol, vanilla extract and combine thoroughly.

5) Spoon this yogurt mixture on top of the berry cherry mix and serve chilled.
