Oh summer, where are you?
Having a look at our kitchen calendar we can learn it’s summer. The sky over Rhineland and the actual temperatures just tell us something different. There’s only one little chance to feel a bit better – go and get a bit of summer feeling into the house. Then I usually take comfort in eating a large sundae. A lite but delicious version is a frozen yogurt. Enjoy it pure or decorated with fruit, nuts or any fruit coulis you like. Für vier kleinere Portionen benötigt man:
To get four little sundaes:
500ml low or full fat plain yoghurt
100ml sour cream
50-100g powdered sugar (just sweeten it as much as you like it)
different seasonal or frozen fruit
opt. some crushed amarettini, wafer rolls
Mix yoghurt, sour cream and sugar (you may take honey as well) in a large lid closed bowl. Put bowl in your freezer and remove it every 15-20 minutes to stir again. There shouldn’t come up any ice crystals. When the yoghurt is completely cooled you may take it out for serving. (It will take between one or two hours according to your freezer adjustment)
My sundae’s decorated with traditional summer berries. Current, strawberries and raspberries steeped in some honey to draw juice. Pour this mixture on your frozen yoghurt and spread some crushed amarettini on top. Add a wafer roll and here you are with a perfect sundae.
It’s lovely too with some chocolate, vanilla or strawberry sauce. And if you don’t look outside when eating it you really may believe in summer.
