Chef's tip

Since we want to use the zest, make sure you choose organic (or at least un-waxed) lemons! If you want to turn this recipe vegan, just replace the regular yogurt with a soy one.

Serving suggestion

Serve as a light dessert at the end of a meal or on its own at tea time.

Wine selection

Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Vintage Port.

Family tip

If you prefer, you can substitute the crushed almonds with walnuts.
