  • Syns per serving:


  • 8 tbsp artificial sweetener
  • 400g ready-made, low-fat custard
  • 3 x 125g pots Danone Activia 0% fat Vanilla yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp peppermint extract
  • A few drops of green food colouring
  • 2 medium egg whites*

  1. Put the sweetener, custard, yogurt, peppermint extract and food colouring in a bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg whites until frothy.
  2. Add the egg whites to the custard mixture and stir well. Pour into a shallow, freezerproof container, cover and put in the freezer for 2-3 hours.
