Why We Love Calcium

Maintaining bone health becomes increasingly important as we age, particularly for women who are more prone to conditions like osteoporosis. Calcium is a vital nutrient for bone health, and incorporating it into your diet can help strengthen bones and prevent fractures. This Lemon Mousse is an excellent way to boost your calcium intake while enjoying a tasty treat.

 

Ingredients

  • Juice of 3 lemons

  • 4 tbsp of plain Greek yoghurt

  • 8 tbsp of full cream milk powder

  • 3 tbsp of agave sweetener powder (or other sweetener such as erythritol)

Instructions

  1. Mix the yoghurt, milk powder, and sweetener in a medium bowl.

  2. Mix half of the lemon juice into the mixture with a fork until smooth.

  3. Add the other half of the lemon juice. Mix everything until smooth.

  4. Cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

  5. Transfer the filling to glasses or smaller bowls of choice and enjoy.


Health Benefits

Calcium-Rich Ingredients: Greek yoghurt and full cream milk powder are both excellent sources of calcium, essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth. Regular calcium intake helps reduce the risk of osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions, especially in post-menopausal women.

Digestive Health: Greek yoghurt is also rich in probiotics, which support a healthy gut. A healthy digestive system is crucial for nutrient absorption, which impacts our overall health and well-being.

Low in Sugar: Using agave sweetener or erythritol instead of sugar makes this dessert a healthier option. It satisfies your sweet tooth without the negative effects of refined sugar, such as blood sugar spikes and increased calorie intake.

Refreshing and Light: The lemon juice not only adds a refreshing flavour but also provides a dose of vitamin C, which boosts the immune system and helps with collagen production for healthy skin.
