Greek yogurt- It is protein rich and a source of a number of nutrients beneficial for good health. It is made by straining whey and other liquids and is of a thicker consistency.
Whipping cream- Heavy cream or any cream with a fat percentage of 30 or more that can be whipped to soft peaks can be used for this recipe.
Sour cream- This fermented cream is rich in calcium and phosphorus.
Sugar- Regular white sugar is used in this recipe. For a healthy alternative, the amount of sugar can be reduced or avoided completely. The sweetness of the fruit is ample , sugar makes it more of a dessert.
Gelatine- Gelatine powder which is a natural gelling agent is added to give this dessert a rich and creamy consistency.
Fruit puree- Frozen fruit purees or freshly blended fruits can be used. My favorite is frozen raspberry puree. I find raspberry puree more flavourful than strawberry puree. To get the right balance of tartnes and sweetness I pair the raspberry flavored yogurt with fresh strawberries .
Fresh berries- Raspberries, strawberries, cherries, black currants or a mixture of two or more berries can be used in this recipe.
Once the gelatin is melted, take it off and swirl for a few min to cool it a little. If gelatin is too warm when you add to a cold mixture, lumps might form which is impossible to do away with.
If you are opting for the second method to melt the gelatin, make sure to wipe the bottom of the bowl to prevent hot water falling into the yogurt mix (something we need to be careful every time we double boil)
