right have finally found my recipe! no idea where i got it from lol but here goes:

300g fat free youghurt(plain)
2 lemons- grate rind and juice( i added some lemon juice too-not sure if this is synned or not?)
1 sachet gelatin
4 tbsp sweetner for the base
5 tbsp sweetner for the meringue
3 eggs

first we make the base:
-mix the yogurt, sweetner, lemon then yolks from all 3 eggs
-put mix in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water for 10 mins-stirring well
-add gelatin and mix well
-pour into flan dish(i had to pour mine through a seive as the gelatin hadnt dissolved properly-oops)

next make meringue
-add the sweetner to the egg whites and whisk until stiff- you should be able to turn bowl upside down and the mix not move
-spread over the base gently
-bake in oven for 10 mins (keep checking, its ready once the top is brown!)

-leave to set (base will still be runny until its cooled down)

enjoy!!!!!! :D

try letting the bottom half set, then doing meringue and baking it, then letting it set again( i ahve done this before too) might make the meringue less soft?
alternatively another recipe says to spread meringue on a baking sheet and cook, then just place on the lemon bit?

have added some photos below of my (half eaten) one :)
as for the dish, it was just an oval roasting dish i used...any that you can bake in will be fine, split it between a few for mini puds :)
