Happy Valentine’s Day lovers!

How very typical of me to bring you an astonishingly pink recipe on this stereotypically pink (or red) day! But seriously, I didn’t plan it like that, it just kind of happened. I guess it was fate, or maybe it was meant to be. That’s the power of Valentine’s Day people. I’ll just stop now.

Fellow Aussies, I don’t know if you heard but Perth has been having a MAJOR heat wave this week. We had 3 days in a row that were 42 degrees C or higher!! And to top it all off, this week was our hottest in 80 years or something like that.

Now, I love summer and the heat (I’m pretty sure I’ve told you before) but this is just mental. You basically can’t do anything until 6:30pm unless you want to die of heat exhaustion or severe sun burn (that may be a slight exaggeration, but I really do feel that there is a chance of the latter happening to some my very fair-skinned friends), or get up at like 4:30am or something and who’s gonna do that?! That’s right no-one – except for maybe all the early morning swimmers out there, which sometimes includes me, you guys rock!

Mine started melting a little bit because I did not freeze it for long enough!

Thankfully, the weather is starting to cool down now and it’s only meant be 32 degrees C today. Perfect for a lovely Valentine’s day picnic by the river, or the beach, or the park….

But for now here is a deliciously refreshing recipe I wish I had a few days ago….

Recipe

Berry Frozen Yogurt

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 x 500g tub natural or Greek yogurt
  • 1 x 500g packet of mixed frozen berries
  • 3-4 tablespoons runny honey
  • A few sprigs of fresh mint
  • 150g fresh blueberries (optional)

Method:

  1. Put 4 small glasses in the freezer to chill.
  2. Meanwhile, make the frozen yogurt by putting the yogurt and frozen berries in a large food processor. Whiz until smooth, then add the honey and mint, and whiz again until everything is combined.
  3. Take the glasses out of the freezer and divide the fresh blueberries between them. Spoon the frozen yogurt over the fresh berries and serve with another sprig of mint if desired.
  4. Store in the freezer and take out 15 minutes to defrost a little bit before serving.

Notes:

  • This recipe can easily be halved, as I did.
  • Any combination of frozen berries will work.
  • This recipe is from ‘Jamie’s 30 Minute Meals’.
