Afternoon Tea

I love creating No Count alternatives for foods I particularly enjoy and an afternoon tea has always been a favourite of mine.  On our recent trip to Devon, we had planned to go out for a cream tea but I decided to make a DIY one instead.  I’d definitely do this again – a super treat without any guilty feelings – and so filling that hubby and I didn’t manage to eat it all!

I had six of the finger sandwiches, one quiche, two of the red velvet brownie pieces (which was one brownie cut in half) and one scone – this was just 2sp on No Count!  If following WW Flex, it would be about 10sp per person if you had the same amount.

  

Sandwiches

Take 6 slices of Warburtons medium sliced wholemeal bread and used two slices to make each of these:

  • wafer thin ham and tomato
  • egg mayonnaise
  • tuna and cucumber

I used 2 tbsp of Aldi lighter than light mayonnaise in total on all of the sandwiches (this amount is free).  I also cut the crusts off which I have taken into account when working out the points for WW Flex.

Crustless Quiches

I used the recipe that can be found here: www.lovingnocount.com/no-count-crustless-quiches/ and added ham and spring onion.

Red Velvet Brownies

I made these the day before and cut each brownie in half.  The recipe can be found here: www.lovingnocount.com/red-velvet-brownies/

Blueberry Scones

These are a real treat if you haven’t tried them yet.  View the recipe here: www.lovingnocount.com/blueberry-scones/

I made NC cherry jam (using 200g frozen cherries and blackcurrant sugar-free jelly) – www.lovingnocount.com/no-count-jam/ – to put on the scones as well as Yeo Valley 0% creme fraiche which is free on NC.

All served with a pot of tea.  Perfect!

    1. Morning Gillian, glad you enjoyed the jam – it’s a great substitute for the real thing 💕💕 I’m going to get in touch with my website provider today as I know a few of you have had trouble getting the links to work. In the meantime, could you access the website by using Google – you’ll find the blueberry scone recipe in the desserts section. Really sorry for this inconvenience and hope you have a lovely day 💕💕 Helen xxxxxx
