Strawberries and Cream the Sugar free way

Strawberries and Cream

The desert of dreams

If the strawberries are sour

You favourite desert how will you devour?

Especially if added sugar is a no

Keeping yourself away from deserts is life’s biggest woe

But thanks to the manna from heaven

Your life can be sweetened

Substituting sugar for Sugar free

And not missing out on anything sweet is the best won’t you agree?

Poem © Vyomi Malik

Come winter and it’s time for one of the most colourful and well-loved fruits to hit the market- strawberries.  From roadside vendors to supermarkets, everyplace seem to be flooded with this beautiful fruit. For some people strawberries are their favourite fruits which they wait the entire year for. If they are sweet, devouring them is sheer delight.
One of my most loved desserts which can be made in a jiffy by anyone (really- even if you’ve never cooked anything in your life and hate anything to do with) is strawberries and cream in a jar.  Some of us love our sugar and can’t do without it so if the strawberries turn out to be sour it could be a big dampener if you wanted to enjoy this dessert. If you’re one of those people who have to forgo sugar for various reasons and yet want to enjoy everything sweet then the best way is to substitute the sugar in your dessert to sugar free  natura and keep on flattering your taste buds the sugar-free way.

Here is my all-time favourite dessert straight from the cookbook of “Pooja Dhingra- the big book of treats” strawberries and cream in a jar where for sweetened cream/sugar I use sugar free as my sweet substitute.

You’ll need around 150 grams of fresh strawberries and 150 grams of whipped cream along with the saviour for those people who cannot have sugar and still want to indulge their sweet buds- Sugar free. It’s best to use a transparent jar or bowl for this desert and half of the fun of this sweet splendour is the way it looks

·         After rinsing the strawberries, cut of the tops and then cut each of the red/pink delights in half

·         You can use local fresh cream or any of the unsweetened  tetra pack varieties you find at your local grocers

·         Now make sure you add sugar  free to the cream while you are whipping it for the oh so sweet surprise

·         Then layer a few strawberries at the bottom of the jar and then spread some whipped cream sweetened with sugar free on top

·         Keep on repeating this till all the strawberries and whipped cream are used up

·         Let this sweet visual treat set in the fridge for two hours and then serve

This is so simple that every man in the house who doesn’t want to move a finger can whip up a great dessert in no time to impress and pamper the women in his life he loves. So go on, indulge yourself in sweetness the sugar free way.

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.
(My Nani- Nirmal Khanna)

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
