We are the kind of cooks who love to create recipes on the go, using whatever is at hand and in season, and coming up with new and inventive ways to use the fruit and vegetables from the garden is one of our favourite spare-time activities. During summer, we like to make sure our dishes are fresh, light and as quick and easy as possible. Produce this good doesn't need to be messed with for it to sing.
Berries are a staple on our menu in the summer months. There is rarely a day that goes by without having at least a few of nature's sweet treats. Whether it's with yoghurt in the morning, in a smoothie for lunch or in this simple dessert which we have at least once a week, mainly because it is so simple and doesn't leave you feeling guilty.
- Mix together the berries, icing sugar, Chambord and vanilla extract. Leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
- Fold together the whipped cream and strawberry yoghurt.
- Spoon the berries between 4 dessert glasses or plates and top with the yoghurt and cream mixture. Garnish with chopped nuts.
