Member Name: catrocks03
Advantages: cheap, tasty, versaltile dessert, can be quickly and easily made, trusted brand
Disadvantages: high in sugar (although they do have no added sugar versions now)
A tad annoyed as I had almost finished this review when my internet froze, hopefully I won't leave out anything in this rewrite!
Angel Delight is a well known whip dessert. It's been around a long time- I remember having it many times as a child. It's very simple to make- all you need is a satchet, 300ml of milk and a whisk- manual or electric.
I have Angel Delight fairly often- once a month at least, twice a week at most. I'd probably have it more often but milk goes quite quickly in my house! My toddler drinks tons of it and my partner is a milk, tea and cereal with large amounts of milk addict!
I definitly don't get my reccomended amount of calcium. I don't like normal milk, i don't like hot drinks (so no milk from tea/coffee/hot chocolate), I have my cereal dry and I don't like many cheeses. The only calcium I get other than Angel Delight is from Cathedral City Cheese of which I grate copious amounts over pasta!
While Angel Delight may not be the healthiest way to up my calcium levels I'm sure its better than nothing at all!
Its a versatile dessert and can be made as a whip, smoothie or icelolly. I have only had it as a whip myself but I plan to try the ice lolly version as soon as i get some moulds. I personally think the icelollys would taste quite similar to mini milks.
You can have it plain or add in other ingredients- my choices include: strawberries (in strawberry angel delight), mini marshmellows or sprinkles.
I have tried a few other brands of whip but none have come close to Angel Delight. I find the cheaper versions often come out quite foamy and sickly in comparison to Angel Delights smoothness.
As I mentioned earlier in the review it is very simple to make- you pour the Angel Delight powder in a bowl, measure our 300 ml of milk, add the milk and whisk for a few minutes. I personally prefer to use an electric whisk- it saves my hand from aching and ensures it is fully whisked, a manual whisk however will work just as well. There is no need to chill this dessert if you are intending to eat it once its ready- just leave it on the side for 5 minutes to set. Obviously if you want to store it for later or store part of it then it will need to be stored in the fridge.
Angel Delight comes in a variety of flavours and currently is priced at 49p for one satchet (Tesco).
The nutritional information does vary from pack to pack but as an example the Standard Strawberry satchet basic nutritional values are:
Per 92g serving prepared with semi skinned milk:
13.9 carbs (11.6 of which sugars)
4.4g fat (3.4 of which saturates)
0.2 sodium (0.49 equivalent as salt)
Overall I think its an incredibly tasty and cheap dessert although a tad high in sugar. Its good to have in the cupboard for a quick and easy to make dessert also.
Angel Delight now also make an icecream mix but I haven't yet tried it- I hear its not as simple as the whip version.
