Layered desserts

Can you imagine that you prepare only 2 layer, but the dessert will have 3 organically! Isn’t it magic? Every one will ask you the recipe, and you can say that it was a hard work making 3 different layers, (while you were sitting, maybe eating or cleaning). But these no bake desserts were setting and forming beautiful layers in the fridge! It looks more complicated to make that it actually is!

The key is to use blender. Yes, it will help to create the foam from frozen strawberries, that is lighter than strawberry puree. That is why beautiful rose foam will lift to the up, while red strawberry puree will fall to the bottom. It is so easy, a little bit of physic or magic, and you will have beautiful and easy strawberry desserts!

Yogurt panna cotta and Greek yogurt recipes

I use Greek yogurt in many of my dishes – desserts, dipping sauces. It is sort of the staple in my fridge. You can see it in our previous blog posts – Buffalo cauliflower, Blackberry desserts, Chia seed pudding with mango, Chocolate and blueberry cake, Yogurt strawberry appetizers and many others!

If you like heavy cream more, you can substitute it to Greek yogurt. Similarly like you would make panna cotta, heat heavy cream with gelatin (use 2 grams more for the recipe) and pour, when it is cooled, on the strawberry layer. However, Greek yogurt is more light and it is thicker, so you need less gelatin. It has lighter taste too.

By the way, you can present these desserts with the name you prefer. It could be just easy strawberry desserts, layered dessert or more fancy – strawberry panna cotta!

No bake desserts are great!

What’s great about these easy strawberry desserts in a glass, you don’t need to think about baking time. You can even make these layered desserts the same day you plan to serve them! Just decorate with some mint leaves and that’s it. No worries about getting the desserts out of the molds, too.

These easy strawberry desserts are healthy, because you will taste fruits and yogurt, no flour, just a pinch of sugar. How about starting your day with these easy layered desserts? I love fruits and yogurt, such an easy and healthy desserts in the morning. But you can’t just buy strawberry yogurt and serve it in glass, give it a twist! Also if you plan dessert after a dinner, this is great light version. Well, no need of cake after 6 p.m., this is a low-calorie dessert!

So if you like yogurt and strawberries, and want to stay healthy, this recipe is for you! It is fresh, creamy, a pure happiness!
