Fresh and Fruity Dessert


Here's another entry for a food blog challenge, they are really fun if you like to cook! This is for a blog I adore: "Söta Saker" (Sweet Things), a lovely blog all about baking and desserts. This month's challenge was to make something with fruit, I made this super tasty and fresh dessert with vanilla yogurt, melon, mango, pineapple and sugar-roasted almonds.

Ingredients

Vanilla Yoghurt:

  • Natural yogurt
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • icing sugar
Marinated fruit:
  • melon, pineapple, mango, peaches or any other fruit you fancy!
  • fresh mint
  • 1 tbsp muscovado sugar
  • 1 lime
Roasted almonds:
  • almonds
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
Roast a handful of almonds in a dry pan. When they start to get a little colour, add the sugar and water while stirring. When the water has evaporated and the sugar is melted and golden brown, put the almonds on baking paper to cool.

Finely chop the fresh mint, mix with the muscovado sugar and the juice from the lime in a bowl. Dice the fruit and mix with the marinade.

Mix the yogurt with some icing sugar and the inside of the vanilla pod, you can also use vanilla essence. Place the fruit in the bottom of a glass, fill it up with yogurt and top with almonds.
