Raspberry Dessert


I will be quick today. I have to go somewhere and I don’t have much time for stories. I just want to tell you that this is a very easy and quick dessert, loved by everyone and the source of it is a card named ‘Delicious Meals Made Easy’ from London, in the time when London found out that it would host the Summmer Olympic Games.

Raspberry Dessert

Preparation: 15 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 284 ml (10 fl oz) pot of double cream
  • 275 g (10 oz) natural yogurt
  • 450 g (1 lb) fresh raspberries (or frozen ones, defrosted, but I don’t recommend)
  • 100 g (4 oz) plain chocolate mini flakes, lightly crushed
  • 4 mint sprigs to decorate

Method:

  • In a bowl, mix together orange juice, ground cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Whip cream in a bowl until stiff peaks form. Stir in yogurt and orange juice mixture.
  • Put three-quarters of the raspberries in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Using a spoon, press the purée through a fine sieve into a bowl. Discard seeds.
  • Divide half the cream mixture between 4 dessert dishes. Pour half raspberry purée over the mixture in the dishes. Gently swirl through the 2 mixtures to create a marbled effect. Sprinkle over half the chocolate flakes.
  • Top with the remaining cream mixture, raspberry purée and chocolate flakes. Put remaining whole raspberries on top. Decorate with mint sprigs and serve at once.

Bon appetite!
