Survival has been our key for the past year. We are slowly falling into a routine and hope that we get back to our normal lives soon. I have totally neglected my virtual space for the past year or so and trust me , there has not been a single day when I would get up and tell myself that ” Today I will blog” and the day flew by without me even thinking of opening up this page. So much so I missed my beloved virtual space turning 2 in April , all the attention has been on our little one !
Not that there have not been times that I was having some free time to do what I enjoy doing the most ! Cooking and blogging !.. but my thoughts were completely elsewhere, a complicated pregnancy, moving homes , an unexpected trip back home , a midst of all this , a move to another state canceled after we packed up and sold all our stuff here ! Pure Chaos is what it was and I wonder how we did it together !
So here I come back and hope to keep it going . Here is a simple recipe for mango yogurt. I have stopped buying a lot of brands of yogurt after I realized that most contain gelatin . We have since started making them at home.
Mango Yogurt :
1 container of Greek yogurt (16 0z)
pulp of 2 medium sized mangoes
1/3 cup whipped cream ( I used the cool whip brand , fat free)
1/3 cup sugar
Remove yogurt from container and place it in a couple of paper towels or cheese cloth and keep it on a strainer and refrigerate it overnight or atleast for 6 hours , so that all the excess water is removed.
After the whey is removed , In a food processor , take the thick curds, mango pulp , sugar and whipped cream and pulse till all the ingredients mix well.
Serve chilled !
I had these chocolate tea cups so I served it in them , alternatively you can serve plain or you can serve with chocolate shavings .
