Recipe:

Sugar Free Strawberry Yoghurt Sundae

Ingredients:

  • 1 x 250mL can full fat premium coconut milk, refrigerated overnight (for coconut whipped cream topping)
  • Additional 250mL full fat premium coconut milk (for yoghurt) *alternative below
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped + 1/2 cup chopped for 2nd layer + 2 for garnish
  • 3/4 teaspoon organic vanilla powder

Method:

  1. In a blender combine 250mL coconut milk (unrefrigerated) with 1 cup strawberries and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder until well combined.
  2. Pour mixture into a freezer-proof bowl and freeze for 2 hours, stirring well after 1 hour and again at 2 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, remove refrigerated coconut milk from fridge. Do not shake.
  4. Turn can upside down and open lid. Pour out liquid that is sitting on top, leaving a thick and creamy coconut cream.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whip coconut cream with 1/4 teaspoon vanilla powder using electric beaters for approximately 5 - 8 minutes or until thick and whipped well. Set aside in refrigerator until assembly.
  6. After 2 hours, mix yoghurt and spoon into serving cups. Top with fresh chopped strawberries, a dollop of whipped coconut cream and garnish with a fresh strawberry.
  7. Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve chilled or with your favourite toppings such as chopped Nuts, Flaked Coconut, Cacao Nibs or carob nibs.

Make It Personal:

  • *You can also use coconut yoghurt such as COYO in place of coconut milk. 
  • Top with or stir through you favourite toppings such as crushed Almonds, Macadamia Nuts or Flaked Coconut.
  • To add sweetness, add 2 teaspoons Raw Honey or Pure Maple Syrup or Liquid Stevia to taste to yoghurt before freezing.
  • You can also blend 1/2 - 1 frozen and peeled banana to yoghurt ingredients in a blender or food processor for an instant frozen strawberry and banana frozen yoghurt that you can serve immediately without having to freeze.

Recipe Tips:

  • Make this recipe just before serving for best results as the strawberry yoghurt will melt quickly.
  • You can also make your strawberry yoghurt by pouring the blended mixture into an ice-cube tray and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours or until set. When ready to serve, pulse ice cubes in a blender until smooth and creamy.
  • Reserve drained coconut liquid from refrigerated coconut milk for Smoothies.
  • It is important to use a good quality full fat Coconut Milk for this recipe to ensure you achieve a thick whipped cream.
