Pulled out my copy of  The Great Scandinavian Cookbook. Here are some  

Fresh berries served with thin or thick cream on the side and sugar or  
splenda on the side.

The above served with the addition of Kirsh.
Berry and fruit platter- just a nice selection of berries and fruits  
on a platter.
There are a number of baked puddings (cooked semolina, wheat, rice,  
bread, barley, etc) which if you could adapt to a low sugar/no sugar  
status be served with berries.
The summer compotes seem to have too much sugar. I am unsure if you  
could get the needed berries or cut out sugar and substitute splenda.
There's a very pretty pears preserved with lingonberries in Camilla  
Plum's The Scandinavian Kitchen. It calls for a lot of sugar but you  
might be able to sub in the splenda there.
