Strawberry Parfait

Strawberry Parfait

I caught a terrible cold recently which translated to the flu and all I could honestly think about was frozen yoghurt. The husband was dead against the idea (after all, I did call in sick!!), but the heart wants what the heart wants. Of course I had to compromise, so I didn’t make any frozen yoghurt but made some parfait which made me pretty happy! Needless to say, it really didn’t cure my cold.

You will need:

  • Strawberries: 1 dozen
  • Hung yoghurt: 500 gms.*
  • Icing sugar: 1 cup
  • Digestive biscuits: 100 gms.
  • Butter (cold, cut into cubes): 25 gms.

Crush the digestive biscuits together with the butter in a food processor and keep aside.

In a food processor, blitz the hung yoghurt, strawberries and icing sugar.

Chill in the freezer for 30 minutes, and lightly whip.

To assemble, fill ¼ of the serving bowls with the digestive biscuits and top with yoghurt. Decorate with strawberries and mint leaves.

*To make hung yoghurt, add about 750 gms. yoghurt in a muslin cloth (or any cheese cloth) and gather the ends to form a pouch and tie the ends securely. Set the yoghurt in a colander with the bowl underneath. Leave it overnight in the fridge. Discard the drained whey in the bowl, untie and use as required.Strawberry ParfaitStrawberry Parfait

    And why cant doctors prescribe frozen yoghurts and other frozen desserts for cold and flu?
