What to do:

Beat the soft cheese with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy, then stir in the yoghurt. Add 1 tbsp of caster sugar with the lemon zest and juice, mixing well.

Put half the raspberries to one side, then puree the rest with a blender or simply mash them with a fork or potato masher. Stir them into the whole raspberries and add the rest of the caster sugar.

Divide the sponge fingers between 4 serving glasses or ramekin dishes and spoon half the raspberry mixture on top. Now spoon the lemon mixture into the dishes and finish off with the rest of the raspberry mixture. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

Tip 1:

If you make this recipe without the sponge fingers, it's suitable for anyone with a wheat allergy too.

Tip 2:

Try serving the raspberry mixture spooned over fresh fruit, low-fat natural yoghurt, low-fat ice cream or hot porridge - it tastes superb!
