Fruity Yoghurt Shortbread Sundae - a Delicious combination of mixed berries, lemon flavoured Greek yoghurt and crumbled shortbread for a perfect after dinner dessert.
You've eaten dinner and a little while later fancy something sweet. How about this yummy Fruity Yoghurt Shortbread Sundae? It is a delicious treat and feels so decadent.
Making a dessert like this with fruit and Greek yoghurt is a much healthier option too. The addition of a crumbled shortbread just takes it to that next level of deliciousness. Perfection!!
Lemon Flavoured Greek Yoghurt
Plain Fat Free Greek yoghurt on it's own can be a little tart and boring. So to make it feel more of a treat for this sundae. I add some lemon for flavouring and little bit of Sukrin which is a naturally derived granulated sweetner.
You can use any sweetener you like, just make sure you check the labelling as not all sweeteners are equal. Sukrin is used like for like to sugar, but some sweeteners you need to use much less and of course some do have an overpowering taste that isn't pleasant, so it's always worth using one you know you like.
If you don't want to use sweeteners at all (I prefer Sukrin because it's Erythritol based and naturally derived), feel free to use some honey or maple syrup instead. Just be aware that will add more calories overall.
Fruit for Yoghurt Sundaes
I like to use frozen mixed berries along with fresh berries. Defrosting the berries ever so slightly makes them more syrupy and delicious without having to add any sugar or syrup.
Don't fancy berries? You can swap out the berries for any fruit of your choice.
Flavoured Greek Yoghurt
For this Fruity Yoghurt Sundae, I went for lemon flavouring as it's a great pairing with berries and shortbread.
If you are using different fruit, you might want to change the flavourings to compliment what fruit you are using.
Vanilla is a great choice that goes with most fruit. You can even add in a little cocoa powder for a chocolate yoghurt.
Best Cookies For Yoghurt Sundaes
I love shortbreads, I think it's that crumbly buttery flavour that is just heavenly.
and adding it to this yoghurt sundae makes it kind of cheesecake like and who doesn't love cheesecake.
Shortbread fingers can vary in calorie, so you may need to double check the the one you use. The ones I used in this recipe are 95 calories each.
If you want to go for a totally different biscuit, then you can really vary this up. Ginger Nuts, for example, are great with fruit like fresh peaches or pear, digestives are great with all kinds of fruit and you could even choose an oreo if you go for fruit like banana or a vanilla/chocolate flavoured yoghurt.
