- Total time15 mins
- 150g pack Essential Blackberries
- 150g pack Essential Raspberries
- 40g caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp
- 250g tub Essential Italian ricotta
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

Halve the blackberries and put in a bowl with the raspberries, 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp water. Stir well and leave to stand while preparing the ricotta.
Put the ricotta, vanilla and remaining sugar in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Alternatively, beat the ricotta mixture in a bowl (the consistency won’t be quite as smooth).
Divide the ricotta onto 4 serving plates and spread with the back of a spoon. Pile the fruits on top and drizzle with the syrup. Scatter with the crushed digestives to serve. Decorate with a few fresh thyme or mint sprigs too if liked.
