Ok now where was I before I was so rudely interupted by work? Ah yes dessert. Last we chatted I was going over the birthday lunch I prepared for a friend. Which as an update, to say she was very pleased is an understatement! I told you that I finished off her meal with a lovely desert of Coconut Lime Frozen Yogurt. Incidently I am enjoying some as we speak . So without further delay the yummy concoction that is a small spoonful of heaven.
3 cups greek style plain yogurt (I used full fat but I suppose you could use 2%)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tsp. coconut extract or flavoring
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 Tbsp. lime juice
the zest of 1 lime
pink peppercorns and lime zest to garnish
Mix all ingredient except garnish thoroughly in your mixer or whisk by hand and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour. Transfer to your ice cream maker and follow your models instructions. When it has reached a soft-serve like consistancy tranfer to a freezer safe container and chill overnight. Serve topped with a little of the zest and some crushed pink pepper corns!
Later my favorite wine guy has another recomendation he wanted to share! See you soon!
