It's time people! It's berry time!! When berries start to appear in the store you know that summer is just around the corner. Summer, the time of tropical fruits, icy poles and mosquitos. This recipe epitomises summer (but without the mosquitos) - 3 different types of berry, an icy cool yoghurty base, and in the form of a cake just because.
This recipe really couldn't be easier, you just need to blend the berries and mix with the yoghurt. It does take a little bit of time as you need each layer to semi freeze before you add the next, but its worth it.
3 punnets of berries (I used strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) (approx. 1 cup each)
3 cups of greek yoghurt
6 tbl maple syrup
3 tbl strawberry jam
1/4 boiling water.
Blend 1 tub of berries with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Stir through 1 cup of yoghurt. Add the first layer to a cake pan (I used a 6 inch cake pan with a removable base) and freeze for an hour.
Repeat 2 more times with the remaining berries, pouring each layer over the top of the last.
Serve with quick strawberry syrup (mix 3 tablespoons of strawberry jam with 1/4 cup of water until smooth - cool before use).
