Fruit Trifle

Deserts seem to be lacking on most diets/healthy eating plans but I really don't think they have to, there are lots of yummy, low calorie, healthy deserts you can try! 

This one is great and looks pretty enough that you an use it when you have people over (you don't have to tell them it's healthy and vegan!) You can use any fruits that you like to eat together, so mango and raspberry, blueberry and banana etc etc etc. I use a stick blender for this recipe because it's so much easier to wash!

Fruit Trifle
 
Makes 4 Serves
1 tbsp chopped Mint
3 cups Mixed Berries
3 cups Nectarines (I leave the skins on)
300g sliken tofu (get organic and non-GM)
3 tsp vanilla extract
Stevia to taste
5 tbsp agar agar (I get mine from the asian grocer)
pinch of salt
4 cups water mixed with 1 tsp orange essence and 10 drops stevia (or apple juice)
1/2 cup chopped Nuts (cashews/almonds etc)
  • combine water, orange essence, salt and stevia
  • slowly rain agar agar into water mixture whilst stirring
  • bring to the boil
  • simmer for 10 mins
  • divide into thirds
  • blend one third with the nectarines and divide among 4 glasses/bowls
  • blend the second third of the mixture into the tofu
  • add vanilla extract and stevia to the tofu mixture
  • layer into glasses
  • blend the last third with the berries and layer into glass
  • garnish with chopped mint and chopped nuts
  • pop in the fridge for about 1hr... technically agar agar sets at room temperature but it's quicker in the fridge and it tastes yummy when it's cold! 
  • Enjoy!!
Calories- just under 300 or without the nuts it's just under 200! and it's full of yummy goodness and looks pretty :) Hope you give this one a go! xxx
