    I created my first vegan desert by putting crushed vegan digestives into the bottom of a desert glass, putting a layer of raspberries and raspberry conserve onto it then topping with creamy soyghurt and decorating with whole raspberries. It was just off the top of my head but I would imagine it has been done before and wondered if it has a name.

    You might call it "Vegan Panna Cotta", close enough ;-)

    Not sure about trifle. From an Englishman's perspective, a trifle has a base of sponge soaked in jelly, then on top of that, set custard, then fruit, then cream and is decorated with hundreds and thousands or sugar strands. I would be happy with some variation but I'm not sure mine constitutes a trifle. Maybe it depends on where you are in the world though?

    A traditional trifle is made with soaked sponge or finger biscuits. Jelly is not required in the making. What you are describing isn't really a recipe just
    a layer of biscuits, yogurt and fruit. I think that you can name it whatever you like.

    JO always calls many of his recipes '' A kinda of …….'' as he often tweaks most of the traditional ones.

    I often make a similar one using crumble, yogurt/cream and puréed fruit.

    I made something similar about a week ago but I soaked the base in Amaretto (hope it's vegan). I love all those desserts that combine cake/biscuits/fruit and creamy stuff like vanilla or plain soy yoghurt. I keep meaning to try cashew cream but haven't got round to it yet. At the same time I like to avoid sugar if at all possible.

    I'd say that dessert would be a trifle or a parfait....

    Did you like it? If it wasn’t all that, then no need to name it unless you have to label The Thing to Never Make Again.

    I loved it and so did my wife. I'm thinking of naming it "Brian's Vegan Saturdae" :D Not sure yet.
