Light and quick

Sometimes, you just need dessert - you just crave it. But since I'm trying really hard to limit my sugar intake, I'm always on the hunt for a dessert that I don't have to feel guilty about but that satisfies. Biancomangiare does all of that, and more. It reminds me vividly of being in Sicily, and what's not to love about that?
