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.
