Raspberry Yoghurt Loaf with Cream Cheese Icing Gluten Free

On the weekend I was given the task of making a dessert to take to a family picnic. After making a few not so healthy treats lately, I was craving something a little healthier and this raspberry yoghurt loaf was the end result.

Made with low fat spreads and yoghurt the dessert didn’t disappoint in taste or texture. The fresh raspberries and lemon juice gave it an added punch of flavour and it was a perfect afternoon treat.

Added bonus, we came home with a few slices of cake as my sister made an amazing layered chocolate cake filled with salted caramel and honeycomb buttercream that was also gobbled up.
