These little brulees are among the easiest and quickest desserts that you can make. Of course, you can enjoy them at any time of the year. During the summer months, make them with fresh berry fruits - raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants. You can leave out the liqueur if you'd prefer.

1. Prepare all the fruit and divide it between 8 small ramekin dishes. Sprinkle with the Cointreau and artificial sweetener, if using.

2. Spoon the yogurt (the thicker the better) over the fruits to cover them completely, and level the tops.

3. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the grill until it is very hot.

4. Sprinkle the sugar over the chilled yogurt in each ramekin, and then place under the really hot grill for 1-2 minutes, until the sugar melts and caramelizes. You must watch carefully to ensure that the sugar does not burn. Leave to cool before serving. If wished, pop the brulees back in the refrigerator until you are ready.
