“More strawberries?” I hear you say. But it’s summer and they are just soooooo delicious! I just can’t get enough of these scarlet berries at the moment. Plus I’m getting all caught up in Wimbledon fever, especially with this fantastic weather. And heaven forbid we waste any strawberries! So here is a little dessert I created earlier this week. It went down such a treat with Lentil and Mr C&L that we’re having it again this evening. You can use whatever fruit you like: it’s a great way of using up any leftovers while they are still fresh. And it’s so quick and easy, just an assembly job really, which leaves more time to focus on the main course. Just as well as I have no clue what we’re having yet! Hoping to get a little inspiration when I head to the fishmongers later. As delicious as this pot of goodness it, I’m not sure Mr C&L would want to forego a main dish for it……
Makes one Papa-sized sharing pot and one smaller pot with two kiddie portions.
6 large strawberries, stem removed and quartered
5 tbsp natural yoghurt
1 tbsp honey
large handful of granola
some orange zest for sprinkling on top
Mix the yoghurt and honey together. If making in one large bowl, layer the bottom of your bowl/jar with half the quartered strawberries. Dollop 4 tbsp of the honey yoghurt on top. Next add the granola and layer the blueberries on top of that. Add the remaining strawberries and 1 tbsp of honey yoghurt. Finally sprinkle a little orange zest on top. Be sure to just use the outer zest as if you go too close to the orange flesh it will be bitter.
Then grab a spoon and tuck into to this pot of deliciousness!
Would love to hear any other ideas you have for fruits to use. xx
