I’m feeling blue, how about you? Would you believe today we are on the last public holiday of the year (not counting the half day off we get for the Danish Constitution day) until Christmas!!
All the holidays here are concentrated around Spring and then there is a complete drought till Christmas. Well, the 6 weeks of annual vacation do make up for it though, so I really shouldn’t complain :D
At least the sun was shining for most of the weekend and I took the opportunity to finally get around to painting a board with this pretty shade of aqua.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Makes me think of the sea and summer vacations even when it is raining outside :D
In the meantime, I am keeping myself and the family happy with this luscious frozen yogurt. Raspberry and dark chocolate are made for each other, aren’t they?
This is a no-churn, no cook recipe, that takes 5 minutes prep and a couple of hours to chill. And pretty healthy too, since it contains a bare minimum of sugar and no cream.
Deliciously creamy from the greek yogurt, pretty pink and tart from the raspberries interspersed with dark chocolate chips, this fro-yo is sure to put a spring in your step (yes, yes, I love my puns!)
I love the fact that it does not need an ice cream machine. Just be sure that you leave it out of the freezer for about half an hour before you want to serve it and muddle it up a little bit with a fork.
And serve it with some ripe juicy raspberries on the side. So delicious and so refreshing with the added delight of dark chocolate chips!
How ‘Springy’ is it in your part of the world? Blooms and blue skies all around? Or rainy and gray? Or are you baking in the sweltering heat? And what are you cooking up? I would love to hear all about it :D
Here’s the recipe.
Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
2 cups Greek Yogurt (10% fat)
2 cups fresh Raspberries
1/4 cup Sugar (add more if desired)
1/3 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
More Raspberries to serve
Place the Greek yogurt, raspberries and sugar in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Press the mixture through a strainer to remove the raspberry seeds.
Fold in the dark chocolate chips.
Pour into a container suitable for freezing, close the container and put the container in a freezer bag.
Freeze for a couple of hours.
To serve, take out of the freezer and leave the container at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Mush up the frozen yogurt with a fork and serve with more raspberries.
