Tart cherry twirl



I like sweet desserts but, sometimes, it’s nice to have something a little sharper or more tart – especially after a big meal. The sharp, tart taste provides a nice cleaning of the palate before settling down to enjoy a good coffee!

This recipe is another easy one that even a complete kitchen beginner could make. Low in fat but high in taste, this is a very healthy dessert indeed!

Ingredients – serves 2/makes 1 pint

2 cup frozen tart cherries

½ cup plain low fat Greek yogurt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

½ cup plain low fat Greek yogurt (not a misprint – you’ll see why in a minute!)

1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup


1. Blend together cherries, ½ cup Greek yogurt and vanilla until smooth. The blenders I recommend.

2. Pour the mixture into a plastic, sealable box.

3. Mix the remaining ½ cup Greek yogurt and honey together and drizzle over the rest of the mixture. Gently swirl the mixtures together.

4. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
