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
1 tub of Yoghurt – your favourite flavour
1 Banana – sliced
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.
