A healthier substitute for ice cream

A great alternative to ice cream. Using full-fat natural yoghurt instead gives the same taste and texture to ice cream, but with far less saturated fat and sugar content.

A great source of vitamins and fibre

Using various fruits that are frozen at their best gives a vitamin boost as well as a natural sweetness to the dessert without any added sugar. The wholemeal bread, oats and any nuts and seeds you may feel like sprinkling on top, will all add to the fibre content.
