Berry Blog

We love berries. We eat them every day. Sometimes we cook them, sometimes we eat them straight out of the packet. This blog is our way of sharing and showing off some of the ways we use our berries. We've prepared the recipes in our test kitchen - which doubles as our staff kitchen. We hope you enjoy these recipes and ideas as much as we do.

Sophia's Christmas Berry Dessert

Written by Trisha on December 17th, 2012.      4 comments

Sophia (8 years old) sent us this picture and recipe of the dessert she made for her family this week.  We think it is very cool.  Good one Sophia – we look forward to more of your berry recipes.  Sophia made this with Orchard Gold Blueberries - but you can use any of the Orchard Gold berries and it will taste great.

Sophia’s Christmas Berry Dessert


2 tablespoons shredded coconut

For the Ice Cream:

1 cup Orchard Gold Blueberries (or other Orchard Gold berries)

1 cup cream

2 tablespoons icing sugar

Zest of half a lemon

To serve:  

1 tub of Yoghurt – your favourite flavour

1 Banana – sliced

Sophia's Christmas Dessert 2012


Place the coconut in a dry pan (i.e. no oil), and gently toast on a low heat.


To make the Berry Ice Cream place the Blueberries, icing sugar and lemon zest in a blender or food processor.  Add the cream slowly and blend until you get your desired texture – stop adding cream at this point. 


Place layers of berry ice cream, sliced banana, yoghurt, then toasted coconut, and repeat until the glass is full.  Finish with a sprinkle of the toasted coconut.

Makes 2 glasses.

Variation:  Replace the cream with milk or half milk and half cream.
