This Low-Calorie Dessert Is A Sweet, Fruity Delight!

Sometimes the simplest things in life are what we all crave. This dessert is no exception. Sweet, vanilla custard and sweet/tart raspberries make the most incredible (and moreish) dessert combo. This is sweet indulgence taken up to 11! 

As ever with desserts, finding a way to keep sugars, fats and carbs low without ruining their luxurious flavour can be incredibly tricky. By using Lo-Dough and a good-quality sweetener in place of pastry and sugar, you can achieve this without sacrificing any flavour at all. 

Making the tart is really, really straightforward. Make a simple custard (as described below). Roll out your Lo-Dough as thin as it will go and push into a 7-inch sandwich pan or cheesecake mould. Carefully pour in your custard and then drop in around 100g of raspberries, making sure there are nicely dispersed. Place in a low oven (140C) for around 40 minutes, or until just soft-set. Allow to cool on a rack or in the fridge for a short while and hey presto - you are ready to indulge.

Low-Carb Desserts Are A Doddle With Lo-Dough

Switch out the pastry found in many desserts for Lo-Dough, and you will immediately drop the carbs and calories and up the fibre of the dish. For a carb-restricted diet, this is a huge plus, but for anybody watching their calorific intake, it's a massive bonus too. Cutting down on sugar is never a bad thing either, so consider switching this out for a quality erythritol-based sweetener. 

Desserts are a special treat, but with Lo-Dough, you can make that treat a much more regular thing!
