Ingredients for creamy yogurt dessert with berries

  • 100 g (1 cup/ 3 ½ oz) powdered sugar (icing sugar)
  • 500 g (1.1 lbs) Greek yogurt
  • 400 ml (1 ⅔ cups/ 13 ½ fl oz) heavy cream, well-chilled
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 vanilla bean

You’ll also need

500 g (1.1 lbs) berries
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

How to make creamy yogurt dessert with berries

Using the tip of the knife split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the vanilla seeds. Add the scraped out seeds to the bowl with yogurt, followed by powdered sugar and lemon juice and mix very well.

Next whip the very well chilled heavy cream until light and fluffy. Add whipped cream to a bowl with yogurt, sugar and vanilla mixture and mix gently. You want to retain the air in whipped cream, so that you’ll have a less dense and voluminous dessert.

Put a fine sieve lined with a clean kitchen towel on a bowl. Scoop the yogurt mixture into the middle of kitchen towel. Fold the sides of the kitchen towel to the middle to cover the yogurt surface. There is no need to tie the towel. You could also cover the yogurt mixture with a cling film/plastic wrap.

Place the sieve with the yogurt mixture and the bowl below the sieve in the fridge and allow the liquid to drain off for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Shortly before serving, add half of the berries and vanilla sugar to a jar and blend. Keep some berries aside, without blending them, so that you’ll have something to bite on.

Put the dessert on a large plate upside-down.

Pour the sauce around the dessert and garnish with the remaining berries. Enjoy!
