The warm weather is finally here! Today the temperature was nearly 90˚F and I was so glad that my Hawaiian Shaved Ice machine arrived from Amazon. This dessert is cool and refreshing, tart and slightly sweet, with a delicate hint of orange.
Strawberry Snow Froyo
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: none
1 cup shaved ice
1 scoop frozen strawberry yogurt (I used frozen kefir)
1/4 cup chilled strawberry syrup (recipe to follow)
sliced strawberries to garnish
Put shaved ice in an individual serving bowl. Put a scoop of frozen yogurt on top of the ice. Spoon the cooled syrup all over the frozen yogurt then garnish with sliced strawberries.
strawberry syrup (from Emeril Lagasse):
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 18 minutes
Servings: 2 1/2 cups
1 pound strawberries, hulled and diced
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons orange juice, preferably fresh squeezed
1/2 teaspoon fresh orange zest
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, simmering for 15-18 minutes until the mixture is reduced by one-third and the syrup thickens. Cool. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
