When I was working on my ice cream cookbook last year (meehhh only in Dutch sorry!) I had a pile of ideas within no time. You’d think … how to get 100 ice cream recipes together?! But once you start, there’s no stopping. All foods and dishes that came across, seemed to have an ice cream possibility. Plus, everyone around me, helped me with cool ideas! The result: I still have quite a few recipes, including this one for yogurt breakfast popsicles…
Yogurt ice cream with granola: the breakfast popsicle!
This yoghurt popsicle was suppose to be in my book, but I wasn’t happy with the image (and lack of time to reshoot) so it didn’t make the finish line. At the moment, I finally have time to do some photography again, so I decided to shoot it another time. New popsicle, other fruit than I previously used: red fruit with seasonal rhubarb …. Of course you can choose any kind of fruit for this popsicle. In addition to the rhubarb I choose strawberry and raspberries. I recommend to add these two for the strong red color.
From ice-cream to macarons
Ok, I get back into the kitchen. I’m in French-kinda-mood (well, it happens more often lately;) & we’re going to Paris this weekend) …I’ve made macarons. Ever since I practiced them for my book: for the ‘after eight’ macaron ice cream sandwiches… I finally made them again. I’m glad that they worked out well. It’s not really difficult, as long as you follow the “macaron rules” and you know your oven. Still, I couldn’t keep my eyes of them. I literally sat on the ground in the kitchen – in front of the oven – to see if they did not get too dark haha. I’m still thinking about the filling … too many options … a fresh-cream-fresh base? Ganache maybe? Any suggestions? To be continued …!
Enjoy the nice weather the coming days. Bye!
