|An Old Favourite – Apricot Bread Pudding
This is An Old Favourite with a twist. Instead of steaming or baking this bread pudding, I merely drenched it with an extra large Herbalife French Vanilla Shake and left it to soak overnight in the refrigerator. The result was stupendous and this is a dessert we have frequently because of it’s taste, nutritional content and low calorie count.
For The Shake: 500 ml low fat milk; 4 scoops (60 gms Herbalife French Vanilla Nutritional Mix; 30 gms almond powder/ meal; 1 tsp vanilla essence.
Blend together for one minute and keep aside till required.
For The Bread Pudding: 8 slices, brown bread, buttered on one side only; 20 apricots.
Soak the apricots in warm water just enough to cover them, overnight. Next day stone them and boil apricots in the same water till thick and soft. Extract the kernels from the seed.
Heat a large nonstick pan and toast brown bread on medium flame both sides till crisp and golden brown. Layer in a glass dish. Pour the shake over and leave to soak in the refrigerator. When well soaked decorate with the apricots and kernels. Drizzle the juices over. It is so delicious, it leaves you wanting for more.
