PREP: 30 minutes SERVES: 4
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, cut into small cubes
4 tsp sugar divided
31/2 oz high-quality white chocolate
11/2 cups Greek yogurt
1 tsp matcha powder
Mix the mango with two teaspoons of the sugar and macerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the white chocolate in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir until melted. Remove from heat and whisk until smooth. Cool slightly and gradually whisk in the yogurt. Divide the mixture between two small bowls.
Whisk the remaining two teaspoons sugar and matcha powder in another small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon hot water and whisk to form a smooth paste. Add the paste to one bowl containing the white chocolate-yogurt mixture. Whisk to blend well.
Divide the mango into four and place them in attractive glasses. Make a well in the green yogurt mixture and pour the white yogurt mixture into the centre. Fold gently once or twice just enough to create swirls. Spoon over the mango, dividing equally. Chill until you are ready to serve.
