  1. Blitz half the strawberries and raspberries in a blender with the lemon juice and 1 tbsp icing sugar until smooth. Sieve into a small jug.
  2. Beat the mascarpone. Add the yogurt, cream, vanilla and 2 tbsp icing sugar; whip to soft peaks.
  3. Pour the Marsala or cordial into a shallow bowl and add the sponge fingers to absorb the liquid. Add half to the bases of 8 short glasses or jars, pushing them down. Spoon 1 tbsp mascarpone cream over each, then drizzle over 1 tsp coulis.
  4. Halve any larger strawberries and scatter over the coulis with half the remaining mixed berries. Repeat with the remaining soaked sponge fingers, mascarpone cream, coulis and berries. Top with white chocolate shavings, if using.

Tip: Swirl leftover coulis through Greek yogurt and granola.
