  • Sugar free strawberry jelly
  • Greek yogurt


  • Make up your sugar free jelly as per the instructions on the packet, add your fresh berries and set in the fridge
  • When your jelly has set, take it out the fridge and layer your Greek yoghurt on top
  • To add an additional layer, make a berry compote by reducing any left over berries in a pan with some water. Leave to cool and once cold, layer over your yoghurt
  • Serve and enjoy!
