  • 225g blueberries
  • 1 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 2 2 lemons, zest and juice
  • 300g Greek natural strained yogurt
  • 6 amaretti biscuits


  1. Mix the blueberries and elderflower cordial in a small saucepan. Heat gently, shaking occasionally, until the berries let out some juices and are coated in a light syrup – about 3-4 minutes. Divide between 6 glasses or ramekins (about 175ml in volume) and chill while you make the lemon cream.

  2. Rinse out the pan and add the sugar, cream and lemon zest. Set over a medium heat and stir together. Bring to the boil, then simmer for a couple of minutes. Take off the heat and stir in the lemon juice and yogurt until combined. Pour through a sieve into a jug. Carefully pour into the glasses over the blueberry compote and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight until set firm.

  3. Just before serving, lightly crush the amaretti biscuits and sprinkle over the top of the pots.
