Nothing says summer quite like fresh berries, and today is National Raspberries and Cream Day, so celebrate with this tasty recipe!
Raspberries and Orange-Flavoured Cream
The orange-flavoured cream is made with thickened yogourt, sometimes called yogourt cheese. Use a probiotic yogourt that does not contain thickeners. The plain yogourt tends to be quite tart; feel free to substitute with a low-fat probiotic French vanilla yogourt and omit the honey.
2 cups (500 mL) low-fat plain yogourt
1/4 cup (60 mL) orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey, to taste
6 cups (1.5 L) fresh or frozen raspberries
Night before: place yogourt in mesh strainer lined with 1 large, unbleached paper coffee filter or piece of cheesecloth over a bowl. Cover and let sit in fridge for up to 12 hours.
Remove frozen raspberries from freezer and let thaw in fridge.
Next day: remove thickened yogourt from fridge, discard water, and place yogourt in medium bowl. Stir in thawed orange juice concentrate. Add honey to taste. This can be done up to 2 days in advance and stored in fridge.
Divide fresh or thawed raspberries equally among 6 small bowls. Top with some of the yogourt mixture.
Makes 6 – 1/2 cup (125 mL) servings.
