Healthy Recipes: Sugar-free Whipped Yoghurt & Wild Berries

Natural yoghurt by itself can be fairly boring and it’s always great to spice things up with a really healthy foundation such as this. This recipe makes ample use of the yoghurt, whipping it into soft indulgent peaks and lightly sweetening with sugar-free syrup, lemon juice, and wild berries. If you like a little crunch, adding a few chopped walnuts really sets this creamy dish apart from the rest and makes for a nourishing, satisfying snack or after-dinner dessert.

Ingredients

For the berry topping:

  • 400g frozen mixed berries (blackcurrants, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries)
  • 2 tablespoons SweetFreedom dark syrup (sugar-free)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

For the whipped yoghurt:

  • 250g fat-free natural yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp SweetFreedom light syrup (sugar-free)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. In a pan, heat all the berry topping ingredients, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. The berries should all have softened completely.
  2. Leave to cool in the fridge for around 1 hour.
  3. For the whipped yoghurt, mix the yoghurt, syrup and vanilla with a handheld mixer. Beat on low-medium speed until the mixture is thick and forms soft peaks and clings to the beater when pulled out. This should take around 5-10 minutes.
  4. Divide the yoghurt mixture into individual glasses, spoon some of the berry topping onto each and finally sprinkle with a few chopped walnuts.
  5. Dig in!
