Spoon half of the muesli into a glass bowl or individual dessert glasses.
Layer half of the yoghurt, fruit and custard on top of the muesli.
Repeat the layers.
Refrigerate overnight to soften the muesli, if desired.
If apple or pear is used, drizzle with a bit of lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
If banana is used, dip the whole banana with the skin, into boiling water to prevent discolouration
Remember that at least half of the fruit used should be low GI
Usually, we do not recommend the use of artificial sweeteners, but in this case it does help to lower the GL, as this is quite a high carbohydrate meal. Some of the commercially available artificially sweetened custards contain inulin, which is a soluble fibre, and an added bonus.
The analysis was done using sweetened, low fat vanilla yoghurt and low fat artificially sweetened custard. However, the sugar content per serving is 11g. This is slightly more than the recommended amount for people with diabetes. Therefore, we recommend that those with diabetes use plain, low fat yoghurt instead of the sweetened vanilla yoghurt.
