  • 350g cherries, stoned
  • 150g caster sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 150g raspberries
  • Greek yogurt, to serve




  1. Pour 4 tbsp water into a pan and add the cherries, sugar and lemon juice. Place the pan over a medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook the cherries over a low heat for about 5-10 mins, until they have released some juices but aren’t overcooked.
  2. Add the raspberries to the pan and cook for a further 1-2 mins, until they’ve started to soften. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the mixture to cool, then chill it well before serving with Greek yogurt.
