  • 300g jar lemon curd (we used Duchy Originals Traditional Lemon Curd)
  • 500g tub 0% Greek yogurt
  • 200g punnet raspberry



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

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • shortbread, to serve


  1. Put the lemon curd and yogurt into a bowl. Fold together for a rippled effect. Divide the mixture between four glasses and chill.

  2. Mix raspberries and icing sugar together and gently crush, then spoon with their juices over the chilled mix and serve.

This was a huge hit at my recent dinner party. For being so easy, this is astonishingly delicious and elegant. Since you can make this several hours ahead of time, it's a great option for when you're having guests over.

Absolutely lovely, light, and tasty dessert. Served it to my parents (they are highly suspicious of anything new put on their table!) .. they really, really loved it and I know I'll now get requests regularly. Such a simple tasty recipe and one I'll return to over and over again. Doesn't even need the biscuit / shortbread accompaniment.

The simplicity of this recipe is misleading. Its just so good for so little effort! I found shortbread a little heavy the first time and the second time served it with Brandy snaps which gave a good crunchy texture.

Lovely dessert, simple but effective. Looks very nice served in a small wine glass and is a light, refreshing end to a meal. Lovely with the shortbread.

I also had the problem that the lemon curd made blobs rather than swirls, but I don't think it mattered because it was still delicious. Great for dinner parties, as it's so quick but gives great results.

I had a jar of lemon curd to use up and was delighted to find this recipe. Lovely. :)

Made these my parents when they came for dinner and went down a treat. My raspberries were a bit tarty but the yogurt and lemon went nicely with them.

Really tasty and I think the quickest dessert I've ever made! Will make again definitely.

Delicious. I also used plain yogurt, but instead of raspberries used sliced strawberries and it was just as nice.

This is a lovely dessert, though it always works really well with Marmalade, particularly at breakfast dolloped on a fruit salad!

Delicious and ridiculously easy. I served in babycham glasses and it looked very good. I did struggle to get the ripple effect that you see in the photo accompanying the recipe - might be that the curd I used was pretty thick. In future I would water it down very slightly to make it easier to swirl through.

Yummy! Combined this with another GF recipe and crumbled some amaretti biscuits into the glass first before drizzling them with some limoncello and continuing as above. Lovely quick, light dessert that looks terribly impressive despite only taking minutes to put together.

excellent dessert. I used strawberries instead of raspberries and I didnt add any sugar to them. I also added some roasted hazelnuts on top just before serving. delicious

Brilliant simple dessert. I sprinkled the sponges with a little raspberry liqueur and skipped the icing sugar for a sharper taste.

Flavours went really well together and the shortbread with it is an excellent touch, may try adding a little dissolved gelitine with the yoghourt next time to set it a little though as its a but too runny for my taste.

Very rich with FAGE 0% so served in in a 2/3 of what was suggested, very nice dessert

Fab little puds. I used Total 0% fat greek yogurt and put a few crushed digestives in the base before the fruit. I served them in martini glasses and they really looked the business. I have made them with both blackberries and raspberries but the raspberry and lemeon is a combination made in heaven. The were so quick too!
