  • 2 tbsp water
  • 60 g caster sugar
  • 60 g pinhead or medium oatmeal
  • 100 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp whisky
  • 250 ml Greek yogurt
  • raspberries
  • 2 tbsp heather honey any runny honey will do


  • Heat the water in a small pan with the sugar until it goes golden and stir in the oatmeal making sure it all gets a good coating of the syrup.
  • Spoon into a shallow dish and leave to cool and harden completely.
  • Whip the cream and gently fold in the whisky and the Greek yogurt and a few of the raspberries.
  • Break up the candied oats
  • Spoon into 6 small glasses and top with a couple of raspberries and a sprinkle with the candied oats
  • Drizzle with honey just before serving


This is a lighter version of traditional cranachan as it mixes Greek yogurt with the traditional cream.
A little goes a long way so just serve in small glasses
