  • 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 meringues 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 recipe is a keeper, so easy and quick to make. I made the yoghourt & creme fraiche mix ahead minus the meringue and sugared the raspberries. When it was time to serve I decided to serve this in meringue nests. It was highly rated by our dinner guests.

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.

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 !

Could I use frozen raspberries, I’m trying to use up Christmas goodies stored in freezer, but in a low fat way, thanks

Thanks for your question. Yes, you can use frozen ones. You could either use them frozen for more of an iced dessert or defrost fully on kitchen paper, then use as above.
