This simple little recipe is a favourite with adults and children in my family. Made with fresh raspberries and low fat natural yoghurt, it is quick and easy and looks very attractive. Yesterday, I made it by special request for the children and they remarked on how Christmassy it looked. They suggested serving it with a sprig of holly on the plate. I hadn’t thought of it as a Christmas dessert option before, but they’re right. It looks fantastic and is so quick and easy you could successfully pull it together even after you’ve had too much wine.
INGREDIENTS FOR EASY LOW FAT RASPBERRY CREME BRULEE

- Castor sugar (optional)
- Thick low fat natural yogurt or natural Greek style yogurt
- Brown sugar
METHOD FOR EASY LOW FAT RASPBERRY CREME BRULEE
Defrost the raspberries and add one dessert spoonful of castor sugar
Spoon in to the glasses, filling each glass about one third full

And that’s it – utterly delicious and healthy.
I like to serve in glasses so you can see the colours.
