Posted Fri, Aug 27, 21 by Sunsweet

  1. Divide the raspberries and crushed ice into 4 portions and put in long drink glasses. Mix the prune juice, cranberry and lime juice, and pour into the glasses. Top up with ginger beer. Put straws in the glasses. If desired, wash the ginger, cut into 4-8 thin diagonal slices and add as decoration. Serve immediately.

Cocktail variation: add 20-40 ml gin.

R351 Frozen Yoghurt Raspberry Prune

Posted Fri, Aug 27, 21 by Sunsweet

  1. First place the yoghurt and then the prunes and raspberries into a blender. Purée at slow speed, then at medium speed until smooth, repeatedly pushing the raspberries downwards with the pestle. If the ice cream is not firm enough, divide the mixture into portions in dessert glasses and leave to refreeze for 30 to 60 minutes in the freezer. Otherwise, immediately divide the mixture into portions in dessert glasses or, alternatively, divide into portions in ice-cream cones.

Vegan variation: soya yoghurt can be used instead of dairy yoghurt.

Tip: a powerful blender makes the ice cream particularly creamy. A hand-held blender is not recommended. However, if only a hand-held blender is available, first thaw the raspberries, then purée all ingredients together. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker (in accordance with operating instructions) or leave it to freeze in the freezer. To freeze, divide the mixture into portions in 4 silicone muffin moulds and place in the freezer for 1-3 hours (do not let the mixture get too hard). Remove the ice cream from the moulds and place on plates to serve.
