26 - CAPE GAZETI, Friday, January 3 - January 9, 1997 Low-cal0rie ha]it keeps no-bake desserts healthy If baking has gotten to be more work and calories than you really want, why not serve easy, no-bake desserts that feature plenty of deli- cious, low-calorie fruit7 Fruit desserts can be a light fin- ish to a heavy meal, and they are also an important part of a healthy diet. The vitamins, fiber and other substances in fruits can protect your health and lower risk of can- cer, according to studies funded by the American Institute for Can- cer Research. And fruits can be a colorful way to make any table dazzling. Some delicious low-fat possi- bilities include: mixed fruit, such as fresh or frozen berries with melon or citrus and garnished with mint leaves or topped with a dash of your favorite liqueur (red Strawberries or raspberries mixed with green slices of kiwi fruit or honeydew melon, for example, can bring out the colors of the sea- son). Other lustrous fruits include dark red cherries, bright slices of orange, and fresh strawberries, which can be served with choco- late dipping sauce made with co- eva powder for fewer calories (see recipe below) or fat-free whipped topping. Fruits like grapes and slices of plums, pears and star fruit can sparkle when they are "glacted" by just rinsing with water and rolling lightly in finely granulated sugar, then arranged on a platter. Fresh or thawed frozen fruits can be pureed in a blender, with or without sugar, and used as deli- cious sauces over slices of low-fat angel food cake bought from your local bakery or grocery store. Dried fruits like dates and figs are higher in calories than fresh fruit, but a few can be chopped and used as festive toppings for fruit-filled puddings, gelatins or low-fat mousse. Poached fruits are easy to pre- pare and can include dried fruits as well as finn fall selections like apples and pears. The following two recipes make the most of these nutritious fruits and you can double or triple the ingredient amounts depending on the number of servings you want.
