Welcome back to another edition of Tasty Tuesday! With temperatures above 90 degrees here, I decided that we needed to cool down with a cold, tasty treat. Today’s recipe is an easy to make frozen yogurt made with raspberries. Ready to head into the kitchen? Let’s go!

Ingredients
1/2 superfine sugar
1 bag of frozen unsweetened raspberries
1 tsp lemon juice
1 small container of plain yogurt

Let’s start with the sugar. If you do not have superfine sugar, you can make it yourself. Process 1/2 cup of regular sugar in your food processor for about a minute. It will feel less grainy and you will see sugar dust.

To the sugar add in your bag of raspberries. Use the pulse button to combine the two. Here it is at the beginning of pulsing, followed by a shot of what it looks like when you are ready to add the remaining ingredients.

Now take the lemon juice and mix it together in a bowl with the yogurt. Feed the yogurt mixture into the feeding tube a bit at a time. You will periodically want to scrape down the sides of the processor. Continue until all has been added. It should now look like this:

Give it a few more pulses and then it is ready to serve! Doesn’t this look tasty?

Wasn’t that easy? This is a perfect hot weather quencher! You can do this with strawberries or pineapple too, if you prefer.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by! Stay tuned for another edition of Tasty Tuesday next week. I will be featuring a very tasty pork loin dinner! Be well… ^..^

I was inspired to make this lovely dessert after reading Conor Bofin’s, One Man’s Meat, post on Apricot Tart Tatin. Apricots are no longer in season, but I did have some peaches from my orchard! This is my first harvest of peaches from an Elberta Peach tree that is now 7 years old! Being that I am a bit crippled with my foot in a wrap, I decided on a cobbler rather than a tart tatin because I cannot stand for too long! When I mentioned to Conor that I was going to try a recipe with peaches, he told me that they have a tendency to be a bit bitter. I solved that issue with a bit of agave nectar! So let’s head into the kitchen to make peach cobbler!

Ingredients
1 stick of butter
1 cup of flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 1/2 tsp agave nectar
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Take the stick of butter and cut into quarters and place in a 9 x 13 baking pan.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Blanch the peaches and remove the skin. Slice into a bowl and add the agave nectar and mix.

Combine and set aside. Then add the milk and sugar to the flour mixture.

When the oven is hot, place the pan into the oven to melt the butter. When the butter is melted, rock the pan to fully coat it.

The peaches will sink a bit.  Make sure that you cover the top evenly so that you get peaches in every bite! Place this in the oven and bake for about 35 minutes, or until browned.

Doesn’t that look really good? The flavor of the cobbler is soft and the peaches are robust! Please let me know if you try this recipe!

Have a terrific Tuesday! Thank you for dropping in! Be well! ^..^

I have never been much of a sweet eater. However, I found an article on the internet for a 10-minute soft serve dessert and after reading the article I had to try it. My husband chose the flavor and I made the dessert. This is so easy to make and will definitely impress company! You can make this just before serving, or if you make this ahead of time, take it out of the freezer to soften up before serving. This recipe makes 4 servings.

Ingredients
1/2 superfine sugar
1 bag of frozen unsweetened raspberries
1 tsp lemon juice
1 small container of plain yogurt

Let’s start with the sugar. You can either buy superfine sugar, or you can make it yourself. I made it myself, by taking a 1/2 cup of regular sugar and processing it in my food processor. I processed the sugar about a minute until it felt much less “grainy” than regular sugar. I noticed too that I had sugar “dust” floating out of the processor when it was ready.

To the sugar, add the frozen raspberries. Using the pulse button on your food processor, combine the raspberries and the sugar. Here is what it looks like right after I started.

Here is what it looked like when I was at the point that I could add the remaining ingredients.

Half way through the process

Let the raspberry mixture sit while you combine the lemon juice with the yogurt. Feed the yogurt slowly through the feeding tube in the processor. You will have to stop periodically to scrape down the sides of the processor bowl. Continue until all is added. Here is a photo of the frozen yogurt before serving,

Almost done

and here is dessert!

Now the secret here is that you are using frozen fruit. So, if you want to make this out of another flavor other than what you can buy in the store, then make sure that you freeze the fruit well ahead of time! I am thinking about pineapple, peach, strawberry, strawberry-banana….the list goes on!

Here is the link to the article from Yahoo Shine where I found this recipe! 10 Minute Soft-Serve You Can Make in Your Food Processor The article is from Eating Well Magazine, and the author: Hilary Meyer. Kudos to you and thank you for the recipe!
