  • 1 cup (100 g) low-fat ice cream
  • 1 store-bought lamington finger
  • frozen raspberries to garnish (about 6)


  1. Stir ice cream to make a soft serve consistency. Crumble the lamington finger and stir into ice cream.
  2. Garnish with raspberries.


Health tip:  This ice cream has a fraction of the energy of a store-bought full-fat version.  Mixing small portions of sweet treats into ice cream helps this dessert feel more decadent than it really is.

Cook’s tips: Replace raspberries with any other fruit, for example, try sliced bananas or strawberries.  Store lamington fingers in the freezer so they are on hand. Or to save time, make a bigger quantity of ice cream and keep in the freezer.

Low Lactose: Use low fat lactose-free ice cream
