I was very excited to spot the first blackberries of the year today so I had to pick them! We also had a small haul of gooseberries and red currants from the garden, and some other berries left over from last week so I thought i’d whip up a quick summery treat with them!
You can use any fruit you like in this and you could even add nuts, seeds or desiccated coconut etc too! It makes a fab low calorie healthy summer treat! This recipe made 14 little bars for me and they came in at about 25 calories each!
You will need:
A tub of Greek yoghurt (I used the 0% one, you can also use a dairy free option)
A couple of handfuls of fruit (approx 100 – 200g but it depends on the fruit)
Optional sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup, sugar free syrup etc)
If it needs it then chop the fruit up into small pieces, remove any stalks, pips etc. Empty the Greek yoghurt into a bowl and add some of the fruit and stir really well until well mixed.
You want the fruit to be well coated so start with a little at a time and keep adding until you the fruit is coated and there’s a bit of excess yoghurt too. If you plan to use sweetener add it in now too (I didn’t as I like the tartness of the yoghurt and the fruit added enough sweetness for me).
Line a small tray with parchment paper and then spoon the yoghurt mixture in. Smooth down to a layer approx 1 – 1.5cm thick. If you have extra you can pop it in bowls for a healthy snack, brekkie or pud!
Place a layer of cling film over the top and then pop in the freezer for a couple of hours until set! Slice and store in a tupperware box in the freezer for an easy ice cream alternative.
