Simple to make. Doubled the amount of lemon in it though and served in martini glasses with almond thins and raspberrys and blueberrys. Used 300ml of double cream rather than whipping cream. Would make again.

Made for a dinner party. Easy to make. Added more lemon.
Put into painted teacups instead of glasses for fun. Tastes yummy.

Nice and quick dessert. Put 2 puts of whipping cream and 1 part lemon yogurt. As everyone suggested served with raspberries and shortbreads. It looks lovely and relaxing. Will experiment with different yogurts next time.

Very quick and easy to make. Very rich though so you won't need much per serving. My guests loved it but struggled with the amount I served up to each of them.

Lovely. Made the fresh fruit salad version which was a superb contrast for the sweetness of the lemon cream.

I made this for a girlie lunch dessert and its was GORGEOUS. I used the suggestion of adding sponge fingers to the bottle of the glass with strawberries and blueberries - fab. So so easy to make. Will definately be making this again... and again... and again!

So quick that I easily whipped it up between the main course and pudding! I added some extra lemon to make it a bit more tangy. Only need a small amount as it's quite rich. I served it with blueberries and shortbread.
