For the berry layer, heat the juice and xylitol in
a small saucepan until warm. Remove it from the heat and whisk in the gelatine.

Once the gelatine has dissolved, whisk in the cold water. Divide the berries
between 4 ramekins or short round glasses and pour the gelatine mixture on top.
Cover with plastic and refrigerate for 1 hour until set.

For the vanilla and rose layer, heat the yoghurt,
xylitol, cream, rose water and vanilla in a small saucepan until warm. Remove
it from the heat and whisk in the gelatine. Allow it cool for 10-15 minutes
until lukewarm.

Divide the mixture between the 4 ramekins/glasses and
refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until firm.

To serve, dip the base and sides of each
ramekin/glass in some warm water. Place a serving plate on top of the
ramekin/glass and quickly turn it over to unmould. Remove the ramekin/glass and
garnish with mint, if preferred.


Place all of the ramekins/glasses on a tray that
fits in the fridge. This allows you to easily remove them all at once with no spillage
during the layering process.
