A yummy dessert combining smooth yogurt, crunchy amoretti biscuits and refreshing mango. Served simply in glass tumblers this makes an impressive pud for a special occasion or an al fresco party. These puddings only take 15 mins to rustle up and are best made in advance so they have plenty of time to set in the fridge. Mango, honey and yogurt have never tasted so good. The amoretti biscuit really creates a depth of flavor to this dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe mango
  • 12 amoretti biscuits, roughly crushed
  • 400ml Greek yogurt
  • 4tbsp clear honey

That’s goodtoknow

To choose a mango cradle in it your hand and it should feel firm but not hard and the skin should be tight. Hold the stem end close to your nose and smell. It should smell sweet. No scent means no flavour and a sour smell means it has begun to ferment. Keep mangoes at room temperature where they will continue to ripen.

Method

  1. Stand a mango upright on a chopping board and slice through the flesh on one of the flat sides. Repeat on the other side. Take the third section with the seed, cut the flesh away and then slice off the skin. cut into chunks and place in a bowl.
  2. Place 1 mango half, skin side down and score the flesh all the way down in a chess board pattern. Take care not to cut the skin. Gently push the skin up to separate the sections of mango and then cut the flesh away from the skin. Repeat with the other half.
  3. Divide the amaretti between four serving dishes. Top with the yogurt. Spoon over the mango chunks and then drizzle over the honey. Chill for 1 hour before serving.

Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies

Don’t you love the smell of homemade oatmeal cookies baking in the oven!

Once a month I contribute a skinny dessert recipe to Dash Recipes[1]. If you love a moist, chewy oatmeal cookie, you’ll just love these! Under 200 calories, and 5 points plus for 2 cookies. Please visit Dash Recipes for the complete Skinny Oatmeal Walnut Raisin Cookies Recipe[2].

I usually use quick oats in my oatmeal cookies because I prefer the end result, but rolled oats will work just fine in any of these recipes.  

For the chocolate lover, these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies[3] will hit the spot!

For the pumpkin obsessed! These chewy, Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal Cookies[4] made with quick oats, pumpkin, and chopped pecans will bring delight with every bite.

And my personal favorite, Banana Nut Oatmeal Cookies[5] taste like banana nut bread, but in a cookie.

Enjoy!
