Tonight’s recipe will be a very quick, easy, and light dessert. I figured since during iftar you might have a heavy meal, a light dessert would be nice. (Iftar is the time when you break your fast; read previous post “Why Muslims Fast” )
Ingredients: Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and Jell-O (Strawberry flavored)
1) Prepare Jell-O mix according to directions on the box.
2) When it’s ready, pour into small cups or glasses and leave it in the fridge for about an hour so it hardens up a little
3) Now, you have a nice, flat surface where you can sprinkle the berries :)
I like to use these mini Martini glasses because, well, they’re mini so you are forced to put only a little bit of Jell-O without feeling guilty, and then topping it off with some healthy berries! I don’t know about you, but in my mind the berries cancel out the carb/sugars from the jello.
Now I know I said I will be posting Afghan Meals or desserts this week, and you’re probably thinking, “Well, what’s Afghan about this?” Well…the Jell-O is halal ;)
halal= not made from pork or pig gelatin
Peace & love,
