  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Line 6 x 150ml ramekin dishes with cling film. Lightly whip the cream, then fold in the yogurt, meringues and strawberries until well combined. Fold in the lemon curd to give a soft marbled effect.

  2. Spoon into the prepared ramekins and freeze for 2-2½ hrs or until semi-frozen. Meanwhile, make the berry sauce. Tip the raspberries and strawberries, icing sugar and lemon juice into a food processor and blend to a purée. Pass the sauce through a sieve to remove the pips, then set aside.

  3. To serve, turn the semi-frozen parfaits out onto serving plates and remove the cling film. Arrange the halved strawberries and raspberries on top of the parfaits. Serve with a drizzle of berry sauce.

My eleven yr old made this for the family tonight and I absolutely loved it. I forgot to buy him lemon curd so he missed that out but it didn't matter. He had it in the freezer for 3 hours and it was just right - not too hard at all. Really enjoyed it . 5 stars

I tried to just do it in 1 bowl and the merangue dissolved! Not a success for me ! but think it was my fault

it was rock hard after freezing for that long, but just let it thaw for a while before removing from ramekins.

Tasty and Easy. Will definately make again.
