    Blueberry, elderflower & lemon pots

    A delicious finish to any meal, and perfect to make ahead for a dinner party. Light and fruity, with a crunchy amaretti sprinkle, this is one easy pud you’ll turn to time and time again.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus at least 6 hours chilling
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes, plus at least 6 hours chilling

    Makes: 6


    225g pack Waitrose & Partners Blueberries
    1 tbsp elderflower cordial
    125g caster sugar
    300ml double cream
    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.
