Coffee And Liqueur Dessert

This dessert has no sugar added and is a perfect ending to a meal. It is easy to
make and the results are quite astounding. Although it can be served on its own
it can be accompanied with a selection of fruits.
For best results chill overnight in the fridge.
For a reduced sugar version substitute the liqueur with pure unsweetened apple
juice and the honey with a tablespoon of artificial sweetener.
There is a wide range of liqueurs and wines in the drinks and wine section of
Smart Supermarket.

150ml strong black coffee

How to Drain Yogurt
To reduce substantially the amount of calories in a recipe you can substitute
cream with drained yogurt. You have the added advantage that yogurt is high
in proteins, vitamin A, D and calcium.
To drain yogurt place a sheet of filter paper on a strainer and empty a tub of
yogurt in it. Let it drain overnight in the fridge. Do not throw away the whey as
it is a good source of vitamin B and it can be added to soups.

A hungry stomach seldoms scorns plain food.
