Vanilla bean frozen yogurt with strawberry chipotle compote

This is a super easy summer desert, high in flavour low in effort!

You maybe thinking is she crazy chilli and strawberries.. But boy oh boy don't knock it until you try it!
I wouldn't even really call this a recipe because hardly anything goes into it. 

I thought it was super cute serving them In little jars but you could just serve it in a bowl, it's totally upto you. 

Serves: 4 


1 large tub of good quality Plain Natural yogurt 
1 teaspoon of little pod vanilla bean paste or 1/2 teaspoon of extract
2-3 tablespoons of icing sugar, enough to sweeten 

1 packet of strawberries, farmers or supermarket 
1/4 of a dried chipotle, rehydrated & finally chopped
1-2 tablespoons of icing sugar, enough to sweeten 
1/4 teaspoon if ground cinnamon 
Few dashes on vanilla extract. 


Stir together the cold yogurt, vanilla and sugar. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn until soft set. Spoon the yogurt into a container and place in the freezer for a few hours or until set. 

Meanwhile preheat the oven to 200c. Now its time to prepare the strawberries and lay them out In a roasting dish sprinkle over the chipotle and icing sugar, the place into the oven for 10 minutes. Make sure to check on them half way through. 

Now take the yogurt out the freezer and strawberries out the oven! In the vessel of your choice begin to layer the frozen yogurt and strawberries together. Sprinkle over some chopped almonds for a wee crunch.
