Low fat mango trifle

As readers of my Meal Planning Mondays posts will know, I am following the Slimming World diet plan -or at least trying to! It's actually not a restrictive diet in terms of what you can and can't eat - in fact there's nothing you can't eat, as long as you count the syns. I use a lot of their recipes and every so often devise something myself, which I did with this dessert when I wanted something sweet and also had some fresh mango to use up.

I blended the mango with some fat-free natural fromage frais and added some Splenda to sweeten it:

Which left me with this, perhaps a little runnier than I would have liked but not bad:

I broke up one trifle sponge, one meringue nest and spooned the mango mixture over the top. The three layers in a nice glass dish made a lovely little low-fat trifle!

I am sending my trifle into this month's Alphabakes challenge, hosted by my co-host Ros from The More Than Occasional Baker, as the letter this month is T.
