Make over your meals: Pudding and dessert treats

To Make Every Meal Healthier! this month’s small change to make (and to get into the habit of doing) is to make over your meals.

In the August 2012 issue of Healthy Food Guide magazine, every recipe is a healthy makeover of a regular dish. The tweaks to ingredients and methods are small, and once you get the hang of it, the healthy habit of ‘making over’ your own recipes will become second nature. Here are some tips to get you started.

Pudding and dessert treats

  • Use low-fat spread when making pastry. Stick to one with 60 per cent fat – any lower and the texture of your pastry may be affected.
  • Love whipped cream? Try diluting it half-and-half with low-fat vanilla yoghurt for a delicious topping with less fat.
  • When making custard, always use trim milk. You won’t notice it in the final product.
