The nicest dessert on the planet. All that is required is one apple, ribena and a dash of sugar and cinnamon. Dieting just became the best thing in the world!

  • 1 apple
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp brown/casting/white sugar - (whichever you prefer)
  • A dash of 'light' Ribena - or blackcurrent squash.


    1. Boil your kettle.
    2. Peal the skin of your apple off with a peeler or knife then slice your apple in to 4 segments.
    3. In a small saucepan put a dash of ribena/blackcurrent squash in and half fill with your boiled water. Then put your sugar in and place on the heat until your sugar has dissolved.
    4. Put your apple pieces into the saucepan and allow to boil for 10 minutes. Then add your cinnamon and allow to boil for a further 5 minutes.
    5. Make sure your apples are soft and dish up in a bowl with a scoop of your warm ribena mixture from your pan. Allow to cool for a few minutes before enjoying this delightful dessert.
    6. If you use these exact measurments this dessert only has 110 calories in. Could be less if you replace your sugar with sweetener and use a small apple. Enjoy :)
