Asda Great Stuff Banana Delight
Advantages: Cheap, easy to make
Disadvantages: Dont try making ice cream with it, it doesnt work!
I decided to try this banana angel delight when they were on offer in asda, i think they were 3 for £1, and i got 2 banana and 1 strawberry flavour. These were all the flavours that they had in stock at the time, but i hear they also do vanilla and chocolate flavour as well.
The banana angel delight comes in a bright green sachet which has the words 'great stuff' advertised on it. This is a range of asda foods which are suposed to be really healthy and to try and attract the attention of kids with the bright colour i think!
I have tried quite a few things from the 'great stuff' range such as the miniture bags of fruit you can buy, for example cut up apple and grapes. Asda are really trying to create a healthy range of foods attractive for kids.
On the sachet is states that the angel delight is also made with real fruit powder. Another way of asda trying to trick you into thinking its healthy! I suppose it is healthy, as you add milk to it and that gives you calcium that you need. I dont drink milk at all, not even in my coffee, so this is a great way of me getting a bit of calcium!
The sachet suggests that this has been tried and tested already on kids, which gives you another reason to buy it for them!
It has a checklist as part of the 'great stuff' guarentee, making you believe they are really in to what is best for you. It states no artificial colours or flavours, and no hydrogenerated fats or preservatives. Also it says they have strict limits on the fat, saturated fat, salt and sugar that has gone into this product.
It is great to know they care bout whats going in our food, and deffinately made me feel a bit better about the product by reading all these facts about how much healthier it was.
The instructions on the back, showing you how to make the angel delight are very easy to follow. All you need to do is add the contents of the sachet to a bowl of 300ml of whole or semi-skimmed milk. You need to whisk the mixture thoroughly for approximately one minute until it is light and creamy. Then the mixture is ready to pour into your serving dishes and let it stand first for 5 minutes before you eat it!
The texture of this desert is very creamy and light, like they say it should be. It had a nice banana taste, which was quite strong. It tasted just the same as the real thing! I always add a chopped banana into mine as well. You could add anything to it really, it is nice poured onto a home made fruit salad. This recipe is also shown on the back of the sachet. It also suggests having it with chocolate finger biscuits! Yummy! But then it makes it bad for you so have it with fruit instead!
My boyfriend made this mixture once, and had heard it was nice as an ice cream. So he put it into a bowl, covered it and put in in the freezer. It was a few days later he tried it, and it wasnt very nice! It was nothing like ice cream! It was still very soft, it hadnt gone hard, but i wouldnt recommend trying it!
I havnt tried the strawberry angel delight yet, but i will do tonight i think! I also would love to try the chocolate flavour, i love any chocolate flavoured desert!
Overall, these are deffinately recommended, for a cheap desert thats apparently not that bad for you!
Summary: A lovely desert
