Strawberry Romanoff is a very basic dessert made from….. you guessed it, strawberries, cream and liqueur. It is a light, airy dessert which is meant to be enjoyed after a heavy meal because of the fact that it is not made with cake or biscuit. Read more HERE.
Here in Durban we are privileged to have warm weather all year round which makes eating fruity, summer desserts (if the fresh fruit is available) so awesome. Even though I am more of a winter person, I love summer fruits, especially fruit salads with ice-cream…….YUM!
Using as little as 6 ingredients, this recipe is very easy and requires little effort. It is the perfect recipe to use and make in advance for a dinner party. Just pop into the fridge once you’ve made it and leave it there for a day or two until ready to eat.
You will need:
500g strawberries, washed, hulled and halved
2 Tbsp Cointreau or any other orange flavoured liqueur
2 Tbsp strawberry yoghurt
2 tsp icing sugar
2 tsp icing sugar (extra)
175ml cream, whipped
Combine strawberries, icing sugar and liqueur in a bowl, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain Strawberries and reserve the liquid. Divide half the strawberries among 4 dessert bowls.
Blend the remaining strawberries, extra icing sugar, reserved liquid and yoghurt until smooth. Beat the cream in a separate bowl with a hand held electric beater until soft peaks have formed. Fold in strawberry mixture and top the strawberries in the serving bowls with strawberry cream.
