Deconstructed berry dessert

So simple and so delicious! This makes for a great celebratory dessert during the holidays in May. We have quite a few holidays in May in Norway, including the main one which is the Constitution Day. This dessert is perfect for such a celebration.

I can’t wait to be able to make this dessert with berries harvested from the garden. The bushes are barely starting to bud now and we can hopefully look forward to a good harvest again this year. Last year we had an amazing harvest of raspberries, both yellow ones and red ones. These will make for beautiful desserts in the coming months and the boys really love picking and eating them in the garden.

You won’t find a dessert much easier than this. It is perfect for entertaining as it will be done in no time, it tastes great and you can easily make it look delicious too. It is easy to dish up in any type of glass. I used small mason jars as you can see in this post.

This dessert is definitely popular for social nights with the girls too. If you are a little careful choosing your ingredients, you can make this dessert fairly healthy. This you can do by using cookies with limited sugar content and high fiber content as well as lean and low fat quark or yoghurt.

Wash the berries and chop or break the cookies into bits.

Start by layering some of the cookies in the bottom of the jars. Then add 1 – 1,5 tbsp of quark and sprinkle some berries over. Repeat once or twice depending on the size of the glass you are using.

Sprinkle some shredded dark chocolate on top and serve with a good, but simple dessert wine.

This is a dessert you can easily alter to suit what is in season and available. Strawberries, blackberries, currants and fruits such as mango and melon will fit perfectly with this dish.
