Honeydew Cranachan, with Berries, Linseed and Almonds

This simple dessert is a wholesome and low calorie version of the original classic, but it still has all the crunch, creaminess and richness you would expect. It has added benefits of many ingredients, including New Zealand Honey Co. Beech Forest Honeydew Honey. With its lower GI properties (versus sugar) and its’ distinctive citrus flavour you can feel completely guilt free with this option.
