Table for Two - Cherry Trembleque

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a light and simple dessert that is low in calories and perfect for just two people. This is not a sponsored post, and I am including the brand name of the yogurt I used because it produced the best flavor when I was testing different versions of the recipe. The trembleque is a bit like a panna cotta. It has a lovely texture and the yogurt cream, which actually shimmies on the plate, begins to melt when placed on the tongue. The dessert can be molded if you wish, but it is easier, and often more attractive, to pour the trembleque into cocktail glasses for serving. If you do mold it, remember to run the tip of the a knife around the edges of the cup and to dip its bottom in hot water for 30 seconds or so, before inverting onto a serving plate. It is hard to find desserts for just two people and I thought those of you who are no longer cooking for a crowd, might want to consider this very simple recipe for your collection. Here is how the trembleque is made.

Lori, Trembleque is a much loved pudding in Puerto Rico. I have a recipe for their trembleque on my blog. I've used the name because these dessert also trembles on the plate.

I make a version of this. I have a sweet tooth. Life is just easier when I go with the flow with a lower calorie, but still very tasty dessert.
