RASPBERRIES are rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, which help to neutralise toxic free radicals. They are high in ellagic acid, a known chemopreventive to help prevent cancer, and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.
225g (8oz) reduced fat crème fraîche * 255g (9oz) very low fat natural fromage frais * 6 tbsp reduced sugar raspberry jam * 6 meringue nests, roughly crushed * 225g (8oz) raspberries * sprigs of mint, to decorate
Whip the crème fraîche until just beginning to hold its shape. Fold in the fromage frais, jam and crushed meringue. Place a few raspberries in the base of 6 individual dessert glasses, reserving a few for decoration. Gently spoon the meringue mixture into the glasses, then decorate with the remaining raspberries and sprigs of mint. Chill until ready to serve and eat within 2 hours of making, otherwise the meringue goes soggy.
