Herbs & Berries Yogurt

Plain yogurt is one of the most versatile food ingredients in the world.  You can make dessert with it, make salad with it, or you can make curry with it.  Also, it’s one of vegetarians’ best friends.

Here’s a dessert 5-minutes or under recipe for you to enjoy on a beautiful afternoon:

Ingredients:

1) Blueberries

2) Dried cranberries

3) Plain yogurt

4) Brown sugar or honey

5) Fresh mint leaves

6) Herbs!!  lol I just brought a package of “Italian Seasoning” (it’s all herbs inside the package) from Superstore because I couldn’t make up my mind on what kind of dry herbs I wanted.  =P  This “Italian Seasoning” contains the following: marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano, and sweet basil.

Procedures:

1) First of all, forget about the proportion!  Just simply add more berries if you want more acidity and more brown sugar (or honey) if you want more sweetness.  Just taste it out with your taste buds as you move along with this recipe.  Yes, absolutely freestyle it!!  @____@

2) Layering the ingredients in the following order in a bowl (or cup):  blueberries –> yogurt –> brown sugar (or honey) –> dried cranberries –> fresh mint leaves (ripped into pieces!!)  –> whatever edible aromatic herbs you want (“Italian Seasoning” from Superstore in my case)

An “Impartial” Verdict:

It smells wonderfully and elegantly aromatic (of course, with that much variety of herbs, ha!) with just the perfect hint of minty freshness (not too light nor too overwhelming).  It’s a light dessert that has a good balance between sweetness and acidity.  Seems perfect after a heavy meal to sooth the stomach.  Because I’ve chosen brown sugar as my base for the sweetness of this dessert, I could feel the graininess texture of sugar across my taste buds, which surprisingly adds an interesting dimension to this dessert.  However, my mom wasn’t too fond of the sugary graininess like me, so she suggested honey as a substitute instead.
