Dukan Diet Recipe: Rhubarb Ginger Fool

Apart from goji berries and rhubarb, fruit is totally off the menu while you are in the weight loss phases of the Dukan Diet.  It is therefore very important for you to make the most of these two fruits.

In the Cruise Phase rhubarb is considered to be a “vegetable” that you can eat freely on PV days in Cruise but unlike other vegetables you can also have a small serving (100g) as one of your tolerated foods on PP days.  Exceptionally a small serving can also be eaten each day in the Attack Phase if you are suffering from the effects of constipation.

Goji berries are a tolerated food but unlike other tolerated foods they can also be eaten in the Attack Phase. You can eat one tablespoon per day in the Attack Phase and on PP days in Cruise and have two tablespoons on PV days.

This recipe teams rhubarb and ginger together which are two ingredients that go together like peaches and cream to give a simple yet sophisticated dessert that can be served on any occasion.

    the only goji berries that I can access are dried ones.. Is this suitable or do they have to be fresh.

    Thank you

      Dried goji berries are fine.

    Sounds like a nice desert but when is the ginger added?
