Frozen Yoghurt Berry Bark
Here in the Netherlands, we’ve just lived through week 4 of quarantine. Nationally we like to call it an ‘intelligent lock down’, but that doesn’t change a whole lot - much like elsewhere it means no physical contact. No meeting up with friends, no hand holding, no hugs, no sex. All that can be a tough pill to swallow - video chats may go a long way in terms of social contact, but the sheer absence of physical contact makes me realise how important it is to me - what can’t be replaced by smiles over a screen. I crave hugs. My body misses being touched. But it is what it is - so I try to make the most of it and go for the next best thing.
If you can’t have sex, have ice cream ;)
150mL condensed milk
250mL Greek yoghurt
300g mixed fruit (I used a mix of blackberries, blueberries and red berries)
Needed: one baking tray. (I used a small one, about 18 x 18cm, because my freezer couldn’t fit anything larger - and I ended up with relatively thick bark. If your freezer is big enough I actually recommend using a tray that’s a little bit larger, which will give you thinner bark that’s easier to break).
1. Mix together the condensed milk and Greek yoghurt, stirring until there are no chunks.
2. Line a baking tin with baking parchment, then pour the yoghurt mixture on top.
3. Top with the mixed fruits (press them in a tiny bit), and set the tray in the freezer for 4 or so hours. Break into chunks and eat straight away (this mix does not remain ‘set’, when you remove it from the freezer it will melt, like ice cream).
