Strawberry Yoghurt....A Sweet,Healthy Dessert....!!!

Strawberry Yoghurt..!! A Sweet,Healthy Dessert...!!

It has been proved many times that few preparations,made with very less efforts sastisfy our taste bud more than some preparations made with a tough process.Though it's not necessarily true all the time.
Two or three days ago,I prepared a sweet dessert with two or three very easy steps and that preparation really made us so happy.Specially my litttle one,praised me fully.

Delicious and nutrition-rich red colored strawberries are among the most popular berries. Native to Europe, however, nowadays the  berries are widely cultivated as an important commercial crop in many temperate regions all over the world.This fruit is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Folate and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C and Manganese.

Botanically, the plant is a runner (creeper), belongs to the family of Rosaceae, of the genus: Fragaria.( Though I was a student of Zoology,I have a very little knowledge in Botany too,though Botany is just a horrible subject to me ,and all the time I used to search my books for informations. :P :P )

In my home,there is a strawberry addict ...;) :D.Actually my little one loves this fruit like anything.In the morning,at breakfast table,she wants her conflakes garnished with raisins and lots of chopped strawberry and in the similar way,she loves her fruit salad,icecream with this fruit.

In Mumbai,strawberries are mostly available in huge amount during winter season.So,I was thinking since few days,other than eating the fruits in this way,we could use it in some other way too.Therefore,I prepared Strawberry Souffle(recipe will be given soon) ,strawberry milk shakes,cup cakes using crushed strawberries,Then I prepared this strawberry yoghurt and believe me,it was just heavenly.

The recipe is very simple and consists of only two three steps.


  • Strawberry:10-12 pieces(chopped finely)
  • Hung youghurt:2 cups
  • Powdered Sugar:1/2 cup
  • Vanilla Ice-cream:200 ml.


  • Hung yogurt is made from hanging yogurt tied ,in a cheesecloth and draining the liquid out of it.I want to add that hung or creamy yoghurt, as it is healthier than the normal yoghurt.

                                                             Hung Yoghurt

  • I placed about 500gm of  yoghurt in a squared shaped muslin cloth and tied the four corners of the cloth tight and hanged it overnight under my kitchen tap and in the next day morning when I untied the cloth I found the creamy, nice, thick and waterless yoghurt.

                       (I should have chopped My Strawberries more finely.)


  •  Now in a mixing bowl add the hung yoghurt,powdered sugar and the        vanilla ice cream and mix them very well.
  • Then add some finely chopped strawberries with it and mix again.
  • Now your strawberry yoghurt is ready.
  • Serve it garnished with few more finely chopped strawberry.
  • Believe me,the taste is not less than the store bought strawberry yoghurt.
  • Serve this at your breafast table  or as dessert after dinner or lunch.

                            Enjoy Your Food...!!!!
