Syrupy Cinnamon Figs With Greek Yoghurt - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

Figs are such an underrated fruit, with a unique taste and sweetness that make them an ideal dessert fruit. We’ve lightly cooked them in a matter of minutes, resulting in a deliciously sticky and lightly spiced pud that feels super indulgent, but is low in calories!

We’ve served alongside yoghurt with a twist: a dollop of maple syrup elevates the flavour without the need for full fat double cream. You can rustle this dish up in only ten minutes, making it perfect for a quick after-dinner pudding or mid-afternoon treat.

You could even try this with our slimming-friendly custard for a warming and hearty alternative to yogurt, just be sure to adjust any nutritional info accordingly.
