All the flowers of the Mediterranean shores in one gulp!
I present you one gorgeously velvety yogurt : sugar free and (almost )dairy-free!
Ingredients list ( for 5 yogurt pots)
- Almond milk, 700ml
- Greek yogurt 2 percent fat, 80g
- Agar agar flakes, 3 tsp (levelled) or 4g
- Orange blossom water, 2 tbsp
Boil a small cup of almond milk: dust the agar agar over the surface and bring to a slow boil for 3/4 minutes, turning all the time.
Mix it back into the rest of the milk and beat the Greek yogurt into it. You can take this ingredient out if you are lactose intolerant or vegan – it is really there for yogurty flavour in the mix so not essential but groovy.
Add the Orange blossom water (not extract!) or any favoured flavouring (vanilla extract, sugar, honey or anything else).
Pour into small jars, cover with foil and put in the fridge overnight.
You will have a very low-dairy, skinny yogurt that tastes like a dream. The agar agar is a bit tricky to use at first so experiment for the ideal consistency but it is a great help to create creamy dairy free and sugar light puddings…
I ate this straight, as I do yogurts, but feel free to add orange blossom honey or sugar if you like.
When I tasted this I felt immediately transported into a mediterranean grove crowned with almond and orange blossom… I love this oh-so fresh combination of tastes: it is super dreamy and makes you feel like you are about to go on holiday! Reach for a picnic blanket and go for a nap in the orange grove…
