Easy Berry Dessert


Michelle shared a protein rich dessert in line with the incorporation of protein in the diet theme in the South Arm Women Community Kitchen.

Greek yogurt has higher protein content than regular yogurt. We used frozen blueberries in this recipe as fresh berries are not in season yet.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint good quality Greek style yogurt (we used a mixture of plain and honey flavoured Greek yogurt)
  • 4 to 5 pieces crystallized ginger, finely minced
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup honey
  • zest from 1 orange
  • 2 pints blueberries
