I fell in love with this recipe initially just on the photo; they are so pretty! The original recipe from Taste of Home is actually more of a savory dish but one of the comments mentioned using vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream so I decided to take their suggestion. This take some preparation, so if you plan on using this to impress guests with a slightly different but amazing dessert, be sure to give yourself a few hours before the event.
Ingredients (makes 6):
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cranberry juice
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
3 pints plus 6 fresh raspberries, divided
2/3 cups french vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon whipped topping, divided
Add the cranberry juice, sugar and all but 6 raspberries to a blender.
Cover and blend.
Strain and discard seeds, using a spoon to help push the liquid through.
Stir in 2/3 cups yogurt. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Pour mixture into 6 cordial glasses. Top with 1/2 teaspoon whipped topping and a raspberry.
I think these look like they took so much effort.
The most difficult part is straining the liquid, which only takes a few minutes.
I love the color of these!
I don’t know if I would have liked this as a savory dish, I really liked the sweeter yogurt substitute.
