Sorry dear readers for my absence. Things have been a little busy. And I'm sad I've missed posting many delicious meals. Below is a photo from a particularly good should-have-been-blogged meal.
But first, a healthy summer dessert treat! It comes out thick, creamy, sweet, minty and delicious! Also comes out a pretty pale orange color, flecked with red and green.
Minty Fruit "Sherbet"
1/2 pound frozen mango chunks (half a regular sized bag)
4 frozen strawberries
1 frozen fruit pop (I used an old large acai berry frozen bar)
4 dates, pitted
5 fresh mint leaves
About 1 cup of plain yogurt (regular style, not Greek/strained)
Blend it all up. You'll need a high quality blender for this and I wanted it thick so had to frequently use my tamper to press everything through the blades of my Vitamix.
A post I wish I would have done was this dinner I made many weeks ago, made with warm fresh fava beans and local asparagus with a light dressing and parmesan shavings:
