    Delicious brownies that are just that little bit more healthy for you! These chocolate brownies are made with ground almonds and use plant-based agave nectar instead of refined sugar. Coconut oil replaces butter. Use pine nuts or hazelnuts instead of walnuts if you prefer.

    This is a lovely low sugar cake recipe, topped with fresh strawberries and thick Greek yoghurt. You could use any other berry with great success! Strawberry shortcake is an American classic, and the cakes resemble scones.

    This is a berry sorbet with a touch of double cream for just a bit of creaminess. I use Splenda to save on carbs.

    These deliciously light, individual citrus soufflés will be a tempting and refreshing end to any meal. Quark cheese is low in fat and provides valuable nutrients such as calcium without adding too many calories. The accompanying strawberry coulis looks pretty and complements the soufflés perfectly, as well as contributing vitamin C.

    Almost any variety of green-fleshed melon, such as Galia or Honeydew, can be used for this very pretty soup, but it is essential that the melon be perfectly ripe and sweet. Serve the soup as a refreshing first course when the weather is hot, dressing up each bowlful with a swirl of berry purée and some whole berries.

    This creamy, filling dessert is dairy free, gluten free, vegan and has no added sugar. You could use unsweetened almond milk instead of coconut milk and fruit compote or stewed rhubarb instead of mango. Prepare the night before for best results.

    This warm medley of luscious fruit is elegantly spiced with a marinade of saffron and vanilla. It is delicious on its own for a virtually no-fat dessert, or can be topped with a fruity sorbet, vanilla frozen yogurt or ice cream.

    A delicious yet simple dessert, this is ready in just 25 minutes. Flaming the brandy burns off the alcohol, leaving a wonderful flavour which perfectly complements the oranges and pears. Even after cooking, Asian pears retain their crunchy texture, making a pleasant change from the more common dessert pears.
