Method

  1. In a small saucepan gently heat the frozen berries, icing sugar and cinnamon until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, stir in the cassis, if using, and set aside to cool completely.
  2. Whip the double cream and Greek yogurt until just holding it’s shape, ripple through the lemon curd. Break the meringue nests into a glass bowl, or 8 individual glasses. Spoon over half the cream, then half the berries. Repeat with the remaining cream and berries. Serve immediately.

Was very yummy - but would like some more wintery spice to this.

This is an easy and colourful dish. Add a bit more meringue as it feels a little short on crunchiness.
