A contradiction in terms? Well, if you use low fat cream and milk, as suggested, you can spoil yourself! To reduce the calories further, use a low calorie sugar and reduce the amount according to the directions on the packet. You can also relieve your conscience by serving it with fruit and/or a low-fat ice cream. Try it with pears and vanilla ice cream for a delicious Poire Hélène. Scrumptious!
