Raspberry and yoghurt pots

This is my favourite breakfast at the moment - well, most of the year, actually, but fresh raspberries happen to be in season and reduced at most of the supermarkets currently.

A handful of raspberries, a heaped tablespoon of plain yoghurt (we use soy as my husband is dairy-intolerant) and a sprinkling of granola. It looks especially pretty layered up in a tumbler like this, a form of presentation the French are particularly keen on and call a 'verrine'.

You can also of course make it with thawed frozen berries - cheaper for most of the year - or with a cooked fruit compote. We have it with apple and cinnamon, blackberry and apple, plums and rhubarb at different times of year. Not expensive and a great way to start the day.

Makes a nice change from cereal and toast. I picked some blackberries today and am going to have a go at making my own granola - that would be a great combo too Im sure

Blackberries seem to be good this year (must be the rain!) We had a delicious blackberry and apple crumble last night but the mixture works really well in these fruit pots too. Hope you enjoy it!

ooh that looks really tasty, and healthy too!! I love berries, and it would make a change from the usual cereal & milk each morning!
