One and a half tablespoons of sugar for 7 servings of kulfi – do the maths and you will realize just how much healthier this version is compared to traditional kulfi.

This recipe gives you an opportunity to enjoy your all-time favourite desi dessert without much guilt. We have used medium-fat cow’s milk instead of ingredients like full-fat milk, condensed milk and cream.

However, we have used a little bit of cornflour to get a rich consistency, which makes it seem just as good as the original. Easy to make, this Healthy Kulfi is just perfect with the right amount of sweetness and an awesomely luscious mouth-feel!

You can also try other desserts like Lauki ki Kheer or Low Calorie Apple Crumble .
