You might want to swap the scone for something more nutritious too, perhaps dollop some jam and cream onto protein pancakes for breakfast, or stir into protein porridge, or simply to top fruit salad for a nutritious Summer pudding.
If you are dairy intolerant the coconut cream is perfect regardless of whether you’re trying to lose weight, as it’s completely dairy free.

The jam is super easy to make, very low in sugar and suitable for diabetics, though to be honest pretty much everyone needs to reduce their sugar intake. It will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days but freezes well.
1 cup strawberries
1 tsp stevia
2 tbsp. chia seeds
Process all ingredients in a blender and refrigerate overnight.
The chia seeds will gel, thickening the fruit puree.
200g can coconut cream
1 tsp vanilla
A few drops of stevia to sweeten (optional)
Put the can of coconut cream in the fridge for a couple of hours of overnight.
Empty the coconut cream into a large bowl and add the vanilla and stevia to the coconut cream.
Whisk until thick and fluffy with an electric whisk like you would whip cream.
