5 light dessert recipes that will make your mouth water
You don’t have to forbid anything! Get the ideal body for that outfits dreamed of and treat yourself to these light desserts:
1. Chocolate mousse
I had to start with this light dessert because I know that many of us, including myself, love chocolate. It is easy to prepare and ideal to eat in the middle of the afternoon when hunger strikes.
- 6 eggs
- 225 gr of sugar-free dark chocolate
- Sweetener to your liking, I recommend stevia or erythritol
Chop the dark chocolate, place it in a bowl and take it to melt in the microwave. Do it at intervals so it doesn’t burn or lumps. Booking.
Take the eggs and separate the yolks from the whites. Beat the egg whites until stiff until a consistent texture is achieved. Mix the yolks with the melted chocolate and the sweetener (necessary amount), stir little by little so that they do not curdle.
When you have the mixture ready, integrate the egg whites until stiff with enveloping movements. Serve in cups or glasses and let rest in the refrigerator until cold. Add chopped hazelnuts on top and I assure you that it will be delicious!
2. Fruit skewers with orange liqueur
Do you need a quick light dessert? Fruits are the perfect alternative to get you out of trouble.
- 1 piece of each of these fruits: mango, peach, pear, ½ small melon, apple, plum, kiwi, strawberries.
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 tablespoons of cream for light desserts
- 2 tablespoons of water
- Half a glass of orange liqueur
- Cinnamon to taste
- skewer sticks
Lava, peel and cut all the fruits, place them in a bowl, setting aside the melon. The latter, reserve it in a separate container and add a little orange liqueur.
Little by little insert the fruits into the skewer sticks, you can make the combinations you want. In a pan add 1 teaspoon of sweetener, water and butter, reduce this mixture to low heat. (The amount of sweetener is up to your taste)
Wait for it to cool down and add the juice that the melon has released, pour it on a plate and place the skewers so that they are soaked. On top distribute a little cream and sprinkle cinnamon.
