If you are like me, every once in a while that sweet tooth goes into overdrive. When this happens my fridge and cupboards are usually bare off produce to immediately quell that craving. Yes, my cupboard may have the ingredients necessary for an Exotic Banana Loaf or the Spiced Chocolate Cashew Cheesecake but they take a little more time to make.
Let me introduce you to my small but mighty Pots of Passion. Light, fresh and zingy this dessert will take you about 5 – 10 minutes to make from start to finish but will taste like you spent an age in the kitchen putting it together!! Loved by all, this is a great little recipe to keep at the ready.
Time to Prepare Pots of Passion
Makes approximately 6 – 8 pots depending on pot sizes.
Preparation Time: 5 – 10 minutes
Chill Time: Ideally about 1-2 hours but you can eat them straight away!
1kg Greek Style Natural Yoghurt (I’ve used Lidl‘s one because I like the thick creamy texture)
320g pot Passion Fruit Curd (I got mine at From Dorset With Love)
1-2 tsp cinnamon powder
1/2 Lemon or Lime Juice
5 small sliced strawberries
You will need 6 to 8 small pots. I used my plain tumbler glasses so only needed 4 of them as they are a little bigger.
Time to Create:
Slice 4 of your strawberries length ways to line the inside of your pots. (Finely chop the remaining strawberry for garnish.)
Once you have lined your pots with the strawberry slices, spoon in the yoghurt mix. Layer a tsp of passionfruit curd over the top and sprinkle a few of your chopped strawberries for the final touch.
Your pudding is done!!
Optional but Super Tasty:
1 fresh passion fruit. If you can get hold of one, add a small spoonful of the pulp on top of the filled pots. Adds a yummy zing to the finished treat.
Got a small handful of fresh parsley or mint leaves? Finely shred them and sprinkle over the top of the finished Pots of Passion.
Chocolate. If you have a bar, grate some on the cheese grater to sprinkle into the yoghurt mix or as a final garnish.
You could add 1/4 tsp cardamom powder instead of cinnamon powder for a different flavour dimension!! Still as tasty and super exotic.
