Eton Less - Low Fat Eton Mess {Video Recipe}

Here’s a great low fat alternative to Eton Mess which I like to call Eton Less. It's a mere 160 calories and 5g fat per serving compared to a whopping 500 calories and 45g fat per serving of the full blown version. Works great with strawberries or raspberries.

Eton Less is not a dish which can be left or made in advance as the meringues will go soggy. If you wish, you can dice the strawberries, crumble the meringues and blend the yogurt and soft cheese a few hours in advance and assemble just before you serve.
