Absolutely delicious!

I used regular yogurt so unfortunately I didn't get the ripple effect. I also didn't feel the need for the shortbread.

For such an easy dessert and using Tesco's finest lemon curd as i could not find the recommended one, my guests could only use superlatives to describe it - fantastic, wonderfull, marvourless - can I have the recipe.

Thank you very much.

This was delicious. I added 6 crushed meringues to the yogurt/curd mixture to make it more like a Mess than a Fool (LOL). I also cut back on the sugar on the raspberries as a result. I added a squirt of whipped cream to the top of the raspberries, and I served it alongside lemon/almond thimble cookies. It was a hot summer night (27 degrees) when our guests ate this. What raves it got for lightness and coolness. I told them it was easy, but they didn't believe me!

I loved this - I will definitely make it again! It is so light and fresh - perfect if you want a light pudding after a heavy meal.

Delicious, light, tangy dessert which I've made a few times. Served with Patisserie Crepe Biscuits or Cigar type biscuits which are great for scooping it up - delish!

I used plain yogurt rather than Greek, and less lemon curd (added a bit at a time as suggested by Helen). Did not serve with biscuits but crumbled some meringue over the top to finish. YUM!

Delicious. Rather than just adding the curd all in one go mixed in bit by bit until it suited our taste. Mixed blueberries into mixture instead of rasberries.

Fabulous light dessert for after a meal. I have served this at a dinner party and it's gone down a storm. Definitely good with the shortbread.

This was light and impressive. To make it a bit more special for a dinner party i would use slightly less lemon curd or more yogurt and I would also add some lemon zest and a dash of limoncello. I will definately make this again.

Very tasty and simple to prepare. We used brandy snaps instead of shortbread and they worked really well. A lovely quick dessert, if you prefer it less sweet I would reduce the sugar which was added to the raspberries.
