Very quick no-bake ricotta and yogurt flan

For a very quick summer dessert that requires no time spent in a hot kitchen this is a sweet that can be prepared in under 5 minutes provided you have all the ingredients at hand.

You will need:

1 ready made Sponge flan
800g ricotta
100ml Greek Yoghurt
100g Sugar or the equivalent in stevia
300g candid peel and chopped dark chocolate (ratio according to your preference)
A handful almonds and hazelnuts, chopped up and dry roasted in a pan
Grated zest of a lemon
Liquor of your choice, a couple of teaspoons to moisten the flan
A pinch of nutmeg
Glace cherries and grated chocolate to decorate the flan

Prepare the filling by placing the ricotta and yoghurt in a large bowl. Mash it up and then use a hand blender to whizz it to a smooth consistency. Add the candid peel, grated chocolate and dark grated chocolate as well as some chopped up cherries and nuts.

Mix and then add the grated lemon zest and nutmeg. Mix well until the consistency is smooth and even.

Place the flan on a large plate and drizzle the liquor to moisten it. Fill the flan with the ricotta mixture. You can of course pipe it, but I like the casual and undressed appearance. Decorate the top with more nuts, cherries and grated chocolate.

Place in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
