Trifle is one of my husband's favourite puddings, but it's high in sugar and fat. I've made a version that satisfies his cravings while sticking to guidelines about how much fat and sugar we should eat.

Method
  1. Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes or until softened.
  2. Meanwhile, put the raspberries into a pan with 250ml water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Mash the raspberries until completely broken down. Strain through a fine sieve into a clean jug, then stir through the gelatine until dissolved. Pour into a trifle bowl and chill.
  4. Once the jelly is set, make the custard with 300ml boiling water and set aside to cool.
  5. Meanwhile, layer the fruit loaf on top of the jelly and drizzle over the apple juice. Spoon over the custard and spread into an even layer.
  6. Arrange the blackberries over the custard and top with yoghurt.
  7. Finely grate the chocolate on top and serve.

Top tip

Use sugar-free raspberry jelly if you don't have time to make your own.
