Ahhhhhh, I’ve just lost this post as I went to post it! How bizarre!! This is the re-hashed version.
So…. Where was I?
Firstly, I was thanking Angie over at the Novice Gardener for ‘featuring’ me at Fiesta Friday this week. Most Fridays, I try and attend the blogger party bringing with me all sorts of goodies. Last week I brought tales of my adventures in the Netherlands along with some Dutch bar snacks. Angie’s party’s are a great way of meeting new bloggers, sharing ideas and discovering lots of new recipes.
This week I was going to bring a gorgeous frozen strawberry yogurt, courtesy of a Mr Jamie Oliver. I had thrown a punnet of strawberries into the freezer the morning we flew to the Netherlands, so they were perfect for this recipe (or so I thought). I also had a tub of Greek yogurt nearing its use by date and some store cupboard orange blossom honey.
- 1 x 500g pack frozen berries
- 150g fresh blueberries
- 1 x 500g tub natural yoghurt
- 3-4 tablespoons runny honey
So, the first mistake I made- I left the stalks on the strawberries, instead of taking them off before I froze them! DOH!
The second mistake was to leave them whole. I should have quartered them before I froze them! OOPS!
Anyway, I threw the tub of yogurt and some honey into the food mixer and whizzed. I then added the strawberries and whizzed, and whizzed and whizzed to try and break them down. It took ages.
Eventually, the strawberries broke down, but so did the yogurt mixture. By the time I’d finished the mixture was all runny, it looked NOTHING like the photographs in Jamie’s 30 minute meal book.
I served Dr Doolittle a portion poured over a meringue, and I ‘drank’ mine! It was cool, fresh and creamy, with a hint of strawberry- quite strange really.
The photographs don’t do the colour justice, it was a gorgeous reddy-pinky colour.
At least after all the messing around, it tasted ok…. Just gutted that it wasn’t perfect!
