Shrikhand is no longer out of reach of diabetics! This delectable Mixed Fruit Shrikhand keeps the fat in check by using low-fat curds and replacing sugar with sugar substitute. Apart from bringing in ample nutrients, the fruits also increase the fibre count of this dessert. Try and avoid peeling the fruits like pears and apples as a lot of the fibre lies just beneath the skin. Enjoy this as an occasional treat, to round of a meal memorably.


Chopped mixed fruits 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (apple, pear and oranges)
Hung low fat curd 1 Cup (16 tbs) (refer handy tip)
Low fat milk 1 Tablespoon , warm (99.7% fat
Saffron strands 1 Pinch (kesar)
Sugar substitute 2 Teaspoon
Cardamom powder 1/4 Teaspoon (elaichi powder)



In a small bowl, combine milk and saffron. Mix well till the saffron dissolves. Keep aside.

Combine curd, saffron-milk mixture, sugar substitute and cardamom powder in a bowl and mix well using a whisk.

Refrigerate for at least an hour. 


Just before serving, place mixed fruits into a serving glass or bowl and top with chilled shrikhand. 

Serve immediately.

Handy tip: 2 cups of low-fat curd, when tied in a muslin cloth and hung for 1½ hours, will yield 1 cup of hung low fat curd.
