Seasonal Berries, Bitter Chocolate Sauce, Toasted Granola and Frozen Yoghurt


Serves 4

2 or 3 punnets of seasonal berries such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries

1 packet organic toasted granola

Basil leaves for garnish

For the chocolate sauce:

300ml water

2oz coco powder

4oz caster sugar

3oz good quality dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)

For the frozen yoghurt:

4ooml condensed milk

5ooml yoghurt



This recipe allows for a bit of artistic flair when serving.  It could be served on a large platter for sharing or in individual bowls.  It’s supposed to be rustic but is refreshing and tastes amazing!

To make the chocolate sauce put all the ingredients in a small pan and bring to a simmer.  Cookout for 10-15 minutes.

For the frozen yoghurt whisk the 2 ingredients (milk and yoghurt) together and freeze in a sealable container.  Whisk occasionally (every ½ hour) to prevent from freezing solid.

Spoon the chocolate sauce onto your chosen plate, scatter the berries on top, sprinkle over the granola with some balls of frozen yoghurt and tear over some fresh basil leaves.
