200g frozen red berries
1 tbsp maple syrup, honey or caster sugar
150ml double cream
150ml fat-free yoghurt
½ tsp vanilla essence
8 sponge fingers
White and dark chocolate, to decorate
Edible gold dust, optional
Make a simple compote by putting your frozen fruit in a pan with your maple syrup, honey or sugar and heating slowly until the fruits stew slightly.
Lightly whip your cream with the vanilla essence and fold in the yoghurt.
Soak your sponge fingers in milk, sherry or your favourite spirit and layer the bottom of each glass with them. Spoon over your berry mixture, then your custard, then your cream in layers until full (depending on the size of your glass, you may only get one layer of each). Hold back a little berry mixture for the top if you wish.
Top with chocolate shavings and adorn with gold dust, if desired!
ADD A BIT OF CHRISTMAS SPARKLE
Infuse your compote with star anise and soak the sponge fingers in a spicy dark rum for a fabulously festive flavour.
