Shooz Does Healthy Dessert

It might be hard to believe, but I've found a healthy and delicious mid-week dessert (the weekend should should be all about splurge). It came from a quick perusal of the fridge and cupboards, the beauty of this is, you can use what you have in your own cupboards.

The finished product, ticked everything on my "healthy dessert" checklist:
  • Tasty
  • Sweet  
  • Filling
  • Crunchy (a la MasterChef)
    ...and when on the table could pass for dessert without people screwing up their faces!
 So with a resounding yes (from the voices in my head) I give you... 


  • Strawberry yoghurt (I use Barambah Organic)
  • 4 x strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tbs pumpkin seeds
  • handful hazelnuts and almonds, chopped
  1. Use a glass cup (I used Bodum), so you can see the layers & it looks great. 
  2. Start with the yoghurt for the first layer, depending on the size of the glass, roughly 1 tbs will do. 
  3. Cover the first layer of yoghurt with a few strawberry slices.
  4. Sprinkle the nut & seeds over the strawberries. 
  5. Add another layer of sliced strawberries. 
  6. Repeat starting with the yoghurt again and finish with the remainder of the nut & seed mix. 
* You can use a variety of fruits, nuts and seeds. Depending on the season & your preferences. 

A sweet treat with NO GUILT, what more could you ask for?
