Yogurt And Chocolate Covered Raspberries
Lately, I've been trying to focus on sugar-free or low-sugar, light dessert recipes for summer. I'm not sure how accurate it is to call this recipe sweet, but if you've decided to spend the summer on a diet and have been on a strict diet for a few months, yogurt and chocolate covered raspberries may sound like baklava to you.
The recipe is very, very simple. First, we melt the chocolate we will use. In this way, the chocolate is cooled (but still in a liquid consistency) until the yogurt freezes and does not melt the yogurt. Then the raspberries are covered in yogurt. The raspberries with yogurt are frozen until they can be covered in the chocolate without mixing the yogurt with the chocolate. In order for this freezing process to happen in a short time, it is useful to place the tray on the top instead of the middle parts of the freezer. In case the freezing process takes a long time and your chocolate starts to solidify, you can melt it again without heating it too much. If the yogurt starts to melt and mix with the chocolate because you can't move quickly, you can take the raspberries out of the freezer piece by piece and keep the rest in the freezer instead of taking all of them out of the freezer.
If you want to consume yogurt and chocolate covered raspberries immediately after preparing them, you can store them in the refrigerator for a few days. If you want them to be a long-term snack that you can take out when you feel like it, you can freeze them for up to six months. You can eat it frozen as ice cream or after thawing in the refrigerator.
If you want an even lighter dessert, you can skip the chocolate icing step and completely freeze the raspberries you covered in yogurt to have mini yogurt fruit ice creams.
It is up to you whether to add sugar to the yogurt in each option. 1 teaspoon of sugar does not make the dessert too sugary, but takes the sharpness of the yogurt. I recommend using it, but as I said, it's entirely up to you.
By the way, it's not directly connected, but I didn't want to pass without sharing the cheesecake balls recipe .
You can also try the recipe with different fruits. The fruits you will use should not have hard seeds, they should not be too hard or soft. The options that come to my mind are blueberries, blackberries, black mulberries and tiny strawberries. You can also try to use it by chopping fruits such as apricots or peaches. But I say this instinctively, I don't have any experience. If you try it, it would be great if you share your experience in the comments section.
