Ingredients

  • 400ml grape juice
  • ¼ teaspoon agar-agar powder (vege alternative to gelatin)
  • 50g fresh ripe raspberries
  • 50g fresh ripe strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 50g fresh ripe blueberries
  • 100ml greek yoghurt
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 fresh mint leaves

Preparation

  • Bring the grape juice to the boil in a small, heavy based pan, stir in the agar-agar powder and simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring until dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow to cool until beginning to thicken.
  • As soon as the jelly starts to set, divide the raspberries, strawberries and blueberries between four ramekins or dessert glasses.  Pour over the jelly.  Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours until set.
  • Mix the greek yoghurt, vanilla paste and honey together in a small bowl until well combined.

To Serve

  • Remove the jellies from the fridge and spread the yoghurt over the top in a layer.  Decorate with a mint leaf.

Jennifer’s Tip

Vegeset is just as good as good as agar agar and it is cheaper! You can buy it at www.justwholefoods.co.uk/, otherwise use gelatin, and follow the packet instructions.
