Passionfruit, Strawberry and Brandy CoulisI'm making coulis to use for dessert and to freeze the leftovers for later use in ice cube trays, using passionfruit, sugar, lemon juice, strawberries and a little liqueur.
Sieve or puree your choice of fruit, sweater to taste and add a dash of your preferred liqueur or fortified wine to make a delicious (fruit sauce) coulis, Pass through a fine sieve to remove the seeds and refrigerate until needed.
For a thickener coulis, you cook the fruit over a gentle heat, stirring frequently, until it has reduced to to a paste. Strain out any seeds after pureeing.

The zest and rind of a large lemon.
400 grams of caster sugar

Tweaking Desserts to Make them a little Healthier*Buy smaller quantities
*Substitute natural yogurt for cream
Below is how I have Pavlova (on the rare occasions I have refined sugar) these days. You can hardly tell that it is served with natural yogurt, rather than cream.
I don't cook my own these days, as that's a bit of a waste of oven heating, for two small serves for two people, when we can purchase mini-pavlova shells in the store.
I will continue to use yogurt rather than cream on those rare occasions when I want to enjoy this dessert. A twelve person serve would be too big for us and would tempt over indulgence.
No way would I use artificial sweetener.
