This honey pannacotta with raspberries and passion fruit is the perfect Valentine’s Day sweetener.

Serves 6

6 fine gelatine leaves

600ml Greek yogurt

150 ml double cream by Sainsbury’s

150 ml semi-skimmed milk by Sainsbury’s

75g runny honey by Sainsbury’s

A little butter or oil for greasing

125 g fresh raspberries

75 ml water

75g caster sugar

3 passion fruit

Mint to garnish

1. Soak gelatine leaves in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes, until soft.

2. Place cream, milk and honey in a pan. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat. Remove gelatine leaves from water, squeeze out excess water before stirring into the cream mixture until dissolved. Sieve into a jug, and stir in the Greek yogurt. Pour into 6 lightly greased dariole moulds and allow to cool, then chill for 1 hour or overnight until set.

3. Add 75ml water to a small saucepan with the sugar, heat gently and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the pulp of three passion fruit. Turn up the heat, simmer vigorously for 3-5 minutes until reduced and syrupy. Allow to cool and add the raspberries.

4. Run the point of a small sharp knife round the edge of the set pannacotta, to loosen from the mould, then dip the moulds into very hot water for 3-5 secs, invert onto a serving dish and give a gentle shake to release.

5. Serve with the cooled syrup and garnish with fresh mint and a drizzle of honey.
