Entering into Summer - Berry Tiramisu with Fromage Blanc Recipe
Summer Recipe of Mixed Fruits & Fromage Blanc
The end of this month has been crazy with all the end of year activities. At this point we have less than 2 weeks until the end of school and I am looking forward to summer! I have been trying to write this post since yesterday - I thought it would be a quick little number, but life is just busy. On Saturday night we enjoyed a lovely dinner with a fellow blogger, Colleen & her boyfriend, Dave (She blogs at Colleen Le Masters - Life 2.1 - A California Girl at Heart) who have just recently moved to Bordeaux for a short time. I have been drooling over fromage blanc desserts since arriving in France - so finally decided to give this recipe a try for our little get-together. I have to say I was super pleased with the result - so pleased I made more the next night for another dinner party!
Here's the recipe
For 8 persons
500g of strawberries, blueberries &/or raspberries
300g of Fromage Blanc
16 Speculos or lady fingers
60g of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
Beat the sugar with the egg yolks until a whitish mix is achieved
Add the fromage blanc & the vanilla to this mixture
Whip the eggs whites until fluffy and delicately fold the egg whites into the fromage blanc mixture
Wash and cut the strawberries into small pieces (if using blueberries/raspberries just rinse)
Crumble the speculos (or graham crackers) - or with ladyfingers one can soak them in diluted rum before placing them into the bottom of the bowl(s)
Prepare each glass alternating the speculos or lady fingers, berries & the vanilla fromage blanc creme. Refrigerate. (The creme mixture will set better once refrigerated for at least an hour.)
My dessert bowls were on the larger side - so the ingredients made 6 bowls. This mixture could also be layered into a trifle bowl or another large pan and then delicately sliced for servings.
This dessert was light, fresh and perfect for a nice summer evening.
Hope everyone is enjoying the start of this week!
