A healthier dreamier creamier Eton Mess

Eton Mess! My favourite dessert ever! I was already super excited when I realised it’s entirely gluten free but since coming across this twist on the recipe… I am beyond… just beyond.

So what’s the twist? Greek yogurt. Normally I just use soya single cream but adding this low fat, low lactose, high protein treat just has made this such an indulgent and delectable experience.

The Eton Mess Recipe

Serves 1 and contains approx. 233 calories

You Will Need:

  • 75g Total 0% fat greek yogurt
  • 60ml Alpro single cream
  • 2 tsp agave syrup (I like Biona organic dark agave syrup)
  • 1 meringue nest
  • 3 large strawberries
  • An appetite for something very tasty

How to make it:

  1. Whip the greek yogurt, cream and agave syrup together.
  2. Crumble your meringues into the cream, making sure to get of good mix of different size chunks (save a little for topping).
  3. Resist the urge to eat this by itself.
  4. Chop 1 strawberry and mush the other 2 with a fork.
  5. Start layering: Meringue cream. Strawberry mush, more meringue cream etc. Finish with meringue cream, chopped strawberries and remainder of meringue topping.
  6. Eat. Listen to this. Have a moment.
