Low calorie dessert – Layered Crushed Berries

This low calorie dessert is suitable to serve to guests who may not be following The Fast 800. A simple chia berry “jam” layered with a creamy, good quality, full-fat Greek yogurt looks delightfully decadent but it’s deceptively simple. Scatter with toasted almonds for a little extra crunch.

Make this layered crushed berry, low calorie dessert ahead of time and keep in the fridge for an easy pre-portioned dessert to share at dinner parties.
