Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Chilling time 30 minutes 

Process all ingredients, except raspberries and dark chocolate, in a blender until smooth. Divide between two ramekins, tea cups or small glasses and refrigerate for 30 minutes before eating. Top with berries and chocolate to serve.



• This treat can be eaten straight away but is better slightly chilled. Although it won’t keep long in the fridge, chances are that won’t matter.
