225g (8oz) fresh ripe blackberries

1-2 tablespoons clear (runny) honey, or to taste

100ml (3 1/2fl oz) thick low fat plain yogurt

2 tablespoons reduced-fat crème fraiche

  1. Put blackberries in a blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Press puree through sieve into a bowl, reserving juice and pulp and discarding seeds. Alternatively, thoroughly mash blackberries in a bowl; press puree through sieve as above.
  2. Add honey to blackberry pulp; mix well. Gently fold in yogurt and crème fraiche until well combined.
  3. Spoon into serving glasses or dishes; chill before serving. Serve with oat biscuits or sponge fingers.


  • Use mixed fresh berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries in place of the blackberries. Use same quantity of peeled, stoned ripe mango flesh instead of the blackberries, if desired.
