  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 2 x 125g/4½ oz punnets raspberries



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

  • 200g tub half-fat crème fraîche
  • 150g tub Total 0% Greek yogurt
  • 3 meringue shells, either bought or homemade, broken into large pieces


  1. In a small bowl stir a sprinkling of the sugar in with the raspberries, crushing them very slightly as you stir, but still leaving them more or less whole. In a separate bowl fold the crème fraîche and yogurt together with the remaining sugar and the meringue pieces.

  2. Divide the raspberries among four small glasses, top with the creamy meringue mixture. The raspberry pots can be eaten straight away or will keep in the fridge for up to 4 hours.

This is a lovely light dessert. I have also made it with amaretti biscuits instead of meringue and I added some amaretto liqueur.

This is definitely a favourite in our house. It's so light and creamy and you can't even tell its low's much tastier than plain old cream!

Couldn't be easier but so tasty. I made ahead but kept the meringues back and just sprinkled them crushed on the top when ready to eat. Saved them going soggy as lulujersey mentioned.

Brilliant pud. Light, sweet, summery and SO quick and easy. Rave reviews from our dinner guests!

A delicious and lighter twist on the traditional Eton Mess. I've made it with strawberries too and a mix of strawberries and raspberries.

This is sublime ! My sister in law is allergic to cream and as I cook for them once a fortnight it's got more and more difficult to do a suitable pud. This one hits the spot !

Fantastic ! Light and ridiculously easy to make. Meringue melts in uner an hour though so I think these need to be eaten pretty sharpish ! Will defo be doing again as they are low in fat too !

Very quick and easy to put together and tastes lovely and fresh. I have made this with the raspberries and I have also used fresh blackberries - whatever is available. On occasion I replace the sugar with Splenda for the dieters. I also always add the meringue to the yoghurt mixture just before serving.

Very light and taste great. Also very easy to make. I found if you don't eat them straight away though the meringue melts into the yoghurt, which is ok, but they taste much better when the meringue is chunky.
