Desserts do not really have to over-loaded with fat and bad calories all the time. Fruit whips are really simple to make, and it seems like there is always room for a tasty, light end to a delicious meal. This dessert that we will be talking about and preparing today contains only four ingredients, and none of them have lousy fat waiting to clog your arteries unless you want to choke it in whipped cream.
For today’s dessert, I use dried fruit. Prunes will give you must-needed fiber, which is usually not found in pastries or cakes. Raisins, apricots, or clean and dried cherries are also suitable to use. I treasure my grandmother eating this every day with his morning breakfast. He would always ensure there was some left for his breakfast every morning. However, I prefer it as a dessert.
Healthy Baked Fruit Dessert Recipe
- 2-pound of Prunes or 1/2 pound of raisins or 1/2pound of apricots or dried cherries as required. We will use prunes for today’s recipe.
- 2-tsp Brown Sugar
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1/2 tsp of lemon juice.
- Before attempting to prepare this recipe, soak 2 pounds of pitted prunes in clean water for around eight to ten hours. Soak it in water for 8-10 hours.
- Later, cook the prunes in medium heat for five minutes or until tender. Cook it in the same water you used for soaking.
- Turn the heat to high and prepare a puree. Next, keep aside for cooling (for around 10 minutes, maybe?)
- Next, add 1/4 cup of brown sugar and cook for around 7 minutes.
- Leave it for cooling at room temperature.
- Take an egg bowl and beat 2-egg whites until they’re stiff.
- Next, add around half a tablespoon of lemon juice to the pureed prunes.
- Fold the egg whites (beaten to stiffness) into the prune mixture.
- Lightly butter a baking dish (a shallow one), and pour the prune mixture evenly on it.
- Pre-heat oven to 325-degrees and bake the mix for around 25 minutes.
You can serve it hot or cold. Use whipped cream if you want to add to the taste but avoid it if you want to cut down on those fatty calories and bad fat arising from whipped cream.
