Speedy Strawberry Delight

For many of us it´s strawberry season right now. The pleasure of eating a sweet juicy strawberry on its own, or covered in whipped cream is something very special. And of course we can mix them into cakes, turn them into jam…well, the possibilities are almost endless.

Sometimes though you fancy a bowlful of strawberry deliciousness but you need it NOW. Here´s a little dish of strawberries that´s not too naughty and quick to pull together and hit the spot last night when we fancied a little midnight feast (hence the dark shot)!

Per person

  • Half a cup of thick creamy natural yogurt (I used Greek)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar (optional)
  • About half a dozen strawberries, sliced
  • A drizzle of honey
  • A splash of framboise (raspberry) liqueur – optional

Stir the sugar (if using) into the yogurt, pile the strawberries on top, splash on the liqueur, drizzle the honey over then find yourself a nice quiet spot to sit and enjoy a little indulgence and a moment of peace all to yourself.

  1. The frambise is not an optional ingredient 🙂 I often give a bowl of fruit a gloop or two of a fruit liqueur, I find it adds the je ne sais quio 🙂 And that bowl of fresh picked strawberries has me drooling, so I’ll just go and clean up after myself

  2. I love the way that they throw them into carrier bags in the markets. That recipe looks deliciously simple and ingenious. Raspberry liqueur, mm! Limencello would be good too, I reckon. 🙂

  3. This sounds lovely and is particularly handy to me as it accommodates the odd handful of strawberries that I can pick at this time of year. I dream of having buckets of them for jam, but this is consolation indeed!

  4. Yum! I picked up probably our last pint of strawberries for the year today. And Steve ate them all before I had a chance to do anything with them!

  5. That picture looks so enticing, Tanya. And, to think, I’ve been wondering what to do with that bottle of framboise. OK, not really but anytime I’ll take full advantage of every opportunity to mix fruit with booze. 🙂

      1. I agree, it´s one of my favourite drinks and I don´t feel guilty mixing it up here as we can rarely get French champagne (soooo expensive) but have amazing cava!

  6. Hi T, Oh yummy!! I must stop visiting your blog late at night. I think it would be better if I just popped over and raided your fridge instead.
    Have a great weekend.

  7. oh wow! I want one!! I’ve never heard of vanilla sugar, I suppose I could use regular sugar yes? I bet the honey just rounds out the sweetness huh? I just bought a new box of strawberries, most likely less sweet than yours but at least I can get sorta fresh ones.

    on a different note…I hope you don’t mind a techy kind of question. I tried to put the flag counter that you’ve got on your blog onto my blog but I cannot figure it out. Is it a widget where you put the URL? or some place else? I tried an image widget but that didn’t work. thanks if you can help(and if you see this!)

    1. Vanilla sugar is just regular sugar with a used vanilla pod (for eg if you´ve made custard, you just dry it off and then pop it into a jar of sugar and leave it for a few weeks). But yes, regular sugar would be fine too!

      The instructions for the flag counter were sent to me by the lovely Chgo John, so I will dig them out and send them to your e-mail address. I don´t think he´ll mind…but thanks will be due to him and not me when you sort it out!

  8. OK so I need me some strawberries. Right. Um where’s the jet? Sigh. Will wait until summer or try with another fruit – the latter will have to do for now. :o))

  9. Heheh, me harte de fresas ayer! I grabbed two handfuls of strawberries, clutched the sugar bowl to my chest, and sat next to the window to eat away. I love sprinkling sugar on cut strawberries, allowing some time for the juice and sugar to make a nice syrupy strawberry dessert, but yesterday morning I just couldnt wait and dipped the strawberries right into the sugar bowl, happily double dipping. D-Man was very happy (heheh, not) to discover pink clumps of sugar when he woke up and prepared his coffee. 0:)

I love to hear what you think, please leave me a comment!
