A Low Calorie, Fruity & Choc Dessert, Made With Lo-Dough

Sweet white chocolate and tart summer fruit, wrapped up in a soft moist sponge - this dessert can only be a winner! This sumptuous pud comes in at mere 193 calories and only 13 carbs all thanks to the use of crumbed Lo-Dough as a flour replacement. For just a few more carbs and calories, we have added a simple fruit coulis and a few white chocolate curls.

While we can't gloss over the fact that white chocolate is a particularly sugary ingredient, it's lucky that a little goes a long way and with such a low carbohydrate cake and sweet/tart fruit, we think this would make a perfectly fine treat every now and again. 

Not only is it low-calorie and low-carb, it is also packed full of fibre, meaning you could enjoy it after a lighter meal (salad, soup, etc) and feel satiated and content.

Lo-Dough Mug Cake

Easy To Make, Low-Calorie Mug Cakes

Using a Nutri-Bullet or food processor, blitz your Lo-Dough down to a crumb and add to a beaten egg, a teaspoon of sweetener and a dessert spoon of creme fraiche/yoghurt/quark. Mix well. Then add 100g of your main ingredients and carefully mix through - in this case, we used 90g of defrosted summer fruits and 10 of white chocolate. Put into your mug and cook for 2 - 2.5 minutes and then leave to stand for a further minute. Serve hot or chilled.

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  2. Add the mix to a mug and cook in a microwave for 2-3 minutes (depending on wattage). After 2 minutes take out and check by pressing the bottom of the mug cake. It should feel firm to touch, with a little bounce.
  3. Take out and leave to stand in the mug for a further minute before turning out onto a plate.
  4. Serve with a little sweetened blitzed fruit and extra white chocolate curls if desired.
