It’s sunny… In Lancaster… In May…?!
The Diamond Jubilee’s coming up pretty soon for those of you who live in England, and I really wanted to celebrate by making some awesome cupcakes or cookies with the obligatory red/white/blue decorations but I don’t really have the time, money or oven to experiment with baking at the moment – my oven is going through a temperamental stage where it either burns or under-cooks everything – so I thought it might be a nice change to have something natural and healthy in honour of the jubilee that’s easy enough for anyone to try. Most berries are in season at the moment, so I got all the ingredients quite cheaply, and I still have loads left to make more during the week.
This is the most basic dessert you could ever think of making, but it was really lovely and a nice refresher seeing as it’s actually nice weather outside for once; I even had to wear my awesome vintage 80s ray-bans, because everyone just needed more evidence that I’m a complete dork.
I might make some more Jubilee-style food nearer the time if anyone has any suggestions for me to try? I’d really love to have a proper English picnic, so watch this space, and enjoy the patriotism :)
Natural soya yoghurt – I use Provamel (I used plain so I could achieve the red/white/blue colours, but my yoghurt went pink because of the raspberries. Fail.)
- Mix all the ingredients in a little cup, pot or ramekin and put in the freezer until sort of solid, but still a little mushy
- Decorate with a little more fruit
Serves however many your ingredients can make or your freezer can hold
