  • 1 lb blackberries
  • 3 teaspoons clear honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons powdered gelatine
  • 6 oz natural low-fat yogurt
  • 4 Petit Suisse cheeses
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons port
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnuts
  • 2 slivers lemon rind chopped


  • Place half the blackberries in a heavy-based saucepan over a gentle heat and stir until softened.
  • Stir in 2 teaspoons of the honey. Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and sprinkle in the gelatine, stirring well to dissolve. Rub through a sieve, then leave the mixture to cool and thicken.
  • Combine the yogurt and Petit Suisse cheeses and stir in the cooled blackberry puree. Whip the egg whites until stiff and fold in.
  • Reserve a few whole blackberries for decoration. Divide the remainder between six tall wineglasses and pour 1 teaspoon of port into each. Top up with the blackberry mixture and chill.
  • Just before serving, dry-fry the hazelnuts with the lemon rind. When evenly coloured, chop them and sprinkle a little over each glass. Decorate with the remaining berries and honey.
  • Both cultivated and wild blackberries freeze extremely well, just put the freshly picked fruit in a rigid plastic container and freeze.
