Pineapple and Passion Fruit Fool

I wasn't sure whether to call this dessert a fool or a mess , as it contains meringue which is a nod to the classic Eton Mess but then as I wanted to scale down the creamy "fool" dessert, I opted on naming this dessert a fool. I love Summer, all those colourful and accessible exotic fruits which instantly takes away my craving for cake. When the nights are long and bright, I like to treat myself after work to a refreshing dessert. This is relatively healthy for me, but incredibly sublime. If possible, use fresh pineapples, they are ridiculously cheap this time of the year.

Makes 4, (you will need a food processor and four dessert bowls).

200ml Greek yogurt
500g fresh pineapple, skin removed and sliced.
1 tablespoon caster sugar
2 shop brought meringues
2 passion fruits

Add the Greek yogurt, pineapple and caster sugar in a food processor and blitz until the pineapple pieces are almost smooth but there are still some chunky pieces in there. Now it's time to layer up. Pour a couple of tablespoons of the yogurt-pineapple mixture in the dessert bowl, followed by 1/2 meringue (crushed in your hand then topped onto the yogurt) per dessert bowl and a further 2-3 tablespoon of the yogurt-pineapple mixture. Top each dessert bowl with 1 1/2 of the passion fruit.
