Lighter Eton mess

“A quick, pretty and sweet dessert, perfect for a little light treat. Vanilla ice cream mixed with fat-free Greek yogurt has a lovely, whipped, creamy consistency that pairs perfectly with ripe strawberries and crunchy meringue for a dessert tasting far more indulgent than it really is.” Pip Payne, @the_slimming_foodie


Calories per serving: 183


50g (1¾oz) reduced-fat vanilla ice cream

50g (1.oz) fat-free Greek yogurt

1 meringue nest, broken into small pieces

100g (3óoz) strawberries, hulled and quartered


1. Put the ice cream and yogurt in a small bowl and mash with a fork until you have a smooth whippy ‘cream’.


2. In a pretty glass or bowl, create layers of the ice cream mix, meringue and strawberries. Serve immediately.


NOTE Try this with different berries, such as blueberries and raspberries, or even some diced mango.
