Simple recipe for Raspberry Creams – a delicious light dessert to serve after dinner
2 teaspoons powdered gelatine
1/4 cup water
1 cup cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup Greek double-thick
1 tablespoon kirsch liqueur (optional)
Blend enough raspberries to make 1¼ cups of purée then push through a strainer. Set aside the remaining raspberries for garnishing.
Sprinkle the gelatine over the water and leave to soften for a few minutes.
Gently heat the cream with the sugar, but take care not to let it boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the softened gelatine until dissolved.
Cool slightly, then blend in the yoghurt, raspberry purée and liqueur, if using.
Spoon into short glasses and refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight, to set. Garnish with whole raspberries.
