The essence of this dessert is the soft creamy fruit center and the crunchy sugar top. So for those watching calories or just looking for a more health conscious dessert choice you can completely omit the heavy cream and fruit liqueur. Even a sugar free and/or fat free pudding works perfectly as a substitution for the custard or full fat pudding. And then you'll have a healthful, light, creamy and dare I say "better" option for dessert. Fresh berries are also a delicious alternative to the frozen fruit just remember to wash, clean and check them for any infestation.
