Berry Terrine


This recipe is from Weight Watchers and is really great – it feels like a real treat but is only 104 cals per serving! Great for entertaining too as you can make it the day before and keep it in the freezer (and it also looks stunning on the plate).

Serves 8

25g white chocolate
175g frozen mixed berries, defrosted (I had blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants)
4 trifle sponges, sliced in half lengthways
1 500ml container of low fat vanilla ice cream (I used Carte D’Or light)

To serve:
Ready made raspberry coulis
100g berries as above, defrosted

Spray a 2lb loaf tin with oil and then line with cling film.
Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the melted chocolate in a zigzag pattern over the base of the tin. Place in the freezer for 10 mins to set.
Blend 100g of the berries, and then drizzle this in a zigzag pattern in the opposite direction over the white chocolate – then place in the freezer for 15 mins to set.
Working quickly, spread one third of the ice cream into the tin, then drizzle with half of the remaining blended fruit and top with half of the trifle sponges.
Mix a third of the ice cream with the remaining 75g of berries and crush them slightly, then spread this into the tin. Drizzle with the remaining blended fruit and top with the trifle sponges.
Top with the remaining ice cream and smooth over.
Cover the top with cling film and then place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
When ready to serve, take the terrine out the freezer and leave for 10 minutes. Then turn out onto a flat board and carefully cut into slices.
Drizzle your plates (large ones look good) with the coulis in a zigzag pattern and then place a slice of the terrine in the middle and place assortment of berries around the terrine. Delicious!
