The dessert is completely fat-free and with only 182 calories offers fruit enjoyment without regrets. It thus helps in the most pleasant way to fulfil the motto "5 a day", i.e. eating a portion of fruit and vegetables 5 times a day. The berries are good suppliers of vitamin C and are rich in fibre due to their seeds.
If you work with grape juice instead of Prosecco - as stated as an alternative - you can reduce the sugar or even omit it completely, depending on the sweetness of the juice.
