So last night I just got it into my head that I wanted a dessert like treat, it's not something I would crave for generally and if I'm honest, I would prefer a glass of red wine, tequila or a prosecco as a treat but seen as I'm on my "healthy lets change my body shape thing" booze is off limits over the next few weeks,so off to the kitchen I go.There are two types of sugary delights I can make with the ingredients that are always in my cupboard, one being peanut brittle (my all time favourite) and the other is my winter brittle dipped in dark chocolate, now we all know now that sugar is el Diablo (the devil) so it's bye bye to those bad boys for a while! On scouring the cupboard and fridge this is what I came up with....
Serves one large or two meduim size desserts
125g fresh blueberries*
1 banana roughly chopped
125g thick natural Greek yogurt (Dunnes home brand is the only one I use)*
1 tsp Irish organic runny honey
Juice of 1/2 a fresh lime
Pinch of ground cinnamon
I prefer to use a glass to layer this little beauty so here go...
Place the blueberries on the bottom of the glass or each glass if making two, top with the chopped banana, evenly squeeze the lime juice over the banana.
In a separate bowl gently mix the honey, yogurt & cinnamon, top the fruit with the creamy honey yogurt and garnish with extra blueberries, sprinkle of cinnamon and a light drizzle of honey (optional but it does look mighty pretty)
*Tips & Tricks
I only use the Dunnes Stores home brand natural Greek yogurt, it's thick, creamy and simply delicious.
The blueberries I buy are Keeling's also from Dunnes store, they are plump and juicy and at a snap of €5.00 for two packs. Keelings are running a competition at the moment with any purchase of their lovely berries to be in with a chance to win a €100 voucher every hour. See packs for details
Right, here is the calorie thingy if your counting these little devils and want to keep this honey pot very low replace the banana with extra berries this will bring your pot of creamy joy to a low 250kcal for a large one and 189kcal for a medium one.
