Lacto: Lowfat Tiramisu Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1 cup nonfat sour cream alternative
2 tbsp dark rum
8 oz carton vanilla lowfat yogurt
8 oz package neufchatel cheese
1 1/4 cup hot water *
1 tbsp instant espresso coffee granules
1/2 tsp instant espresso coffee granules
40 ladyfingers
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa

Recipe Preparation

I served the low-fat Tiramisu for Easter dinner yesterday. Everyone
seemd to love it. We had all had Tiramisu in restaurants and agreed
that the low-fat version didn't taste as heavy. But I think it's a
good substitute if you need low-fat (which I do). Here it is again -
it's from the October, 1993 issue of _Cooking Light_. NOTE: There
were only 4 of us at dinner, so I made only half the recipe, put it
into a deep covered casserole (about 8x8"), and refrigerated it with
the cover on. It was a lot easier than doing the thing with the

* Instead of the instant espresso, I just made an equivalent amount of
espresso and let it cool some.

Place first 6 ingredients in food processor with knife blade and
process until smooth; set aside.

Combine hot water and espresso granules in a small bowl. Split
ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Quickly dip 20 of the halves, cut
side down, in espresso and place, dipped side down, in the bottom of
a 9-inch square baking dish. Dip 20 more ladyfinger halves, cut side
down, into espresso, and arrange dipped side down, on top of the
first layer. Spread 2 C of the cheese mix- ture evenly over the
ladyfingers. Repeat procedure with remain- ing ladyfinger halves,
espresso, and cheese mixture.

Place toothpicks in each corner and 1 in the center of tiramisu to
prevent plastic wrap from sticking to cheese mixture. Cover with
plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 to 8 hours. Sprinkle with cocoa
before serving.

This recipe makes 9 servings with 7.5 g fat each. I hate to think
how many grams of fat are in the real stuff!

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food Don't believe the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the product. Some are only a little lowered and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.

* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to put in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carb choccie bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.

Brassicas, Super foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Celery, Mustard greens and Chinese cabbage)
Known as cruciferous vegetables, these are jam-packed with vitamins (including vitamin c and folate), minerals (including potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.

Amongst many health giving properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by nutritionalists to reduce the risk of cancer.
