Knickerbocker Glory

There’s an English dessert called Knickerbocker Glory – a lot like an American ice cream sundae but with lots of delectable summer fruits. I came upon Mary Berry’s recipe for a Knickerbocker Glory a while ago and filed it away for future reference, and then the other day I came upon a recipe for a healthy version of a Knickerbocker Glory and knew I had to try them both.

So you choose – the gooey, delicious, caloric version with fresh mango and raspberry puree, or the clean eating version: granola, fresh fruit, and froyo. You can see from the photos that it’s hard to tell them apart. Honestly, they’re both so good!
