Dairy free, Gluten free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

If you're trying to control high blood sugar levels you don't have to give up sweet treats altogether.
Custard apples are a wonderful sweet treat. They are high in fibre, and with a low GI make the perfect occasional dessert to enjoy when most other puddings have been vetoed from your diet.

Ingredients
1 lemongrass stalk,
300 ml water
2 tbs lime juice
1 lime zested
Method

Peel ginger and grate the ginger

Lightly bruise the lemongrass with the handle of a large knife to release its flavour and chop into smaller pieces.

Place the ginger and lemongrass in a small pan with the water and maple syrup and over a low heat slowly bring the liquid to the boil.

Simmer for 8 minutes.

Remove from heat, strain and leave to cool completely.

7. Divide custard apple between 4 glasses. Add the lime juice and zest to the cooled syrup.

Pour equal amounts of syrup over custard apple and serve.
