Finish your low-fat feast with these simple delicious puddings.


  • 125g (1/2 cup) fresh dates, pitted, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 30g low-fat dairy spread
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 small carrot, grated (see note)
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp pure icing sugar, to serve
  • 150g tub light French vanilla Fruche, to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease four 200ml-capacity ramekins or pudding moulds. Line each base with baking paper.
  2. Combine dates and 1/2 cup cold water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in bicarbonate of soda. Set aside to cool.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat spread and sugar until well combined. Add egg and vanilla essence and beat well. Stir in carrot and date mixture.
  4. Sift flour over date mixture and stir gently to combine. Spoon into prepared ramekins and place on a baking tray. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand for 5 minutes. Turn out onto serving plates. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with Fruche.
