Review This Recipe
Excellent idea for low fat low calorie dessert
This dessert is easy to make, quick and very satisfying. Perfect for healthy eating options as it is.
I like to experiment with healthy substitutions so that recipes can be adapted to low fat, low calorie, low sugar eating habits. I used fat free evaporated milk, Splenda as a sugar substitute and tripled the amount of cocoa powder and added 3/4 cups of water (used to mix the cocoa) to alter the cappuccino into a mocha custard.
