    This delectable version of the popular Italian dessert includes the traditional sponge biscuits soaked in coffee and liqueur for the base, but rather than a rich topping there is a light and creamy mixture of sweetened ricotta cheese and Greek-style yogurt. A sprinkling of grated dark chocolate is the finishing touch.

    Make the most of aromatic, golden apricots when they're in season by using them in this attractive tart. It has a sweet orange shortcrust base and is topped with a crumbled flapjack-style mixture of oats, sultanas, hazelnuts and seeds. Serve slightly warm for dessert or with morning coffee or afternoon tea. The recipe for sweet shortcrust pastry is separate. Look in the notes section for how to make orange sweetcrust pastry.

    This is a unique way to serve this luscious summer fruit! The balsamic vinegar brings out the beautiful colour of the berries, and truly enhances their flavour. Great served with a simple sponge, over vanilla ice cream or simply on its own with a dollop of cream.

    This is a lovely low sugar cake recipe, topped with fresh strawberries and thick Greek yoghurt. You could use any other berry with great success! Strawberry shortcake is an American classic, and the cakes resemble scones.

    This is a berry sorbet with a touch of double cream for just a bit of creaminess. I use Splenda to save on carbs.

    These deliciously light, individual citrus soufflés will be a tempting and refreshing end to any meal. Quark cheese is low in fat and provides valuable nutrients such as calcium without adding too many calories. The accompanying strawberry coulis looks pretty and complements the soufflés perfectly, as well as contributing vitamin C.

    Almost any variety of green-fleshed melon, such as Galia or Honeydew, can be used for this very pretty soup, but it is essential that the melon be perfectly ripe and sweet. Serve the soup as a refreshing first course when the weather is hot, dressing up each bowlful with a swirl of berry purée and some whole berries.
