A spoon-friendly dessert for our Domestic Olympians

The Olympics 2012 are in full swing. The children are on their summer break. But for you, the Domestic Olympian, every holiday is a series of 100metre sprints: shopping, cooking, washing, cleaning, parties… 

Require a quick spoon-friendly treat that will hit the spot for the children and the adults, but you don’t want it blowing a big hole in your food budget?

Below is the recipe for a healthier version of the Eton Mess.

The recipe’s plus points:

It’s healthier as it uses the clean tasting, low fat, Greek Style yogurt rather than full fat

double cream, check out the Can I Eat It? UK App below for the comparison!

It takes advantage of the supermarkets’ competitively priced soft-berry summer-fruits.

It tastes as good as the regular version.

Children can make it themselves – which hopefully gives little time for our Domestic Olympians to watch our Great Britain Olympians going for gold!
