Easter has been and gone, and whilst I stayed on the straight and narrow, it was a tough old time! This recipe is inspired by my love of sweet things, and helped me keep control in the mornings, which kept me on track for the rest of the day. It’s naturally sweet (from berries, fruit and a sprinkling of cinnamon), has a low GI, healthy fats, plenty of protein, is filling, and is super-delicious. It takes hardly any time at all to make – 5 minutes tops, depending on how fastidious you want to be with your presentation! It serves as a great breakfast pot, dessert or indeed cheeky snack. My ‘recipe’ is by no means the final word; get creative, bring in colourful fruits to suit your emotions, and make your pot reflect your mood ?

1. Start by mashing the banana and figs separately
2. Mash half the raspberries with half the cottage cheese (my favourite)
