Berry Semifreddo Icecream...

Berry Semifreddo Icecream is exceptionally easy to make!
A perfect treat for using berries fresh or frozen.

Step one: You will need to make a berry puree.
I used 1 1/2 cups of frozen berries - raspberry and blueberry.
To this you add 1/4 cup caster sugar and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
Heat in a saucepan over low heat until berries become pulp like.  Set aside to cool.

Step Two:  Puree the pulp.
I used my Magic Bullet to do this.

This Nutr.Bullet is seriously the best small appliance I have in my kitchen.
I used it for making sauces, smoothies, and milkshakes.
I'm big on making pure fruit healthy smoothies!

 Step Three: Whip 300 ml of pure cream with 1/4 cup sugar.
Step Four:  Whip till peaks form 2 egg whites.
Fold into cream.

 Step Five:  Fold 150 ml of natural sweetened yoghurt into the whipped cream mixture.
Then swirl through half of the berry puree.

      Place it in a small tub.

 The last step is to use a knife to swirl the remaining berry puree through the icecream.

Cover and freeze.

 Semifreddo is much more of an icy texture than icecream.
But is so refreshing on a summers day.
To serve:  Remove from freezer and let thaw for five minutes.  Use a metal Icecream scoop that has been heated in hot water.  Roll balls and serve with fresh or tinned berries or a berry compote sauce.

Berry delishishness...
Not a real word but you'll know what I mean!
Put it on your must-try list when your summer season arrives!

Easter Egg Cake, Flowers & More

Easter Eggs
Easter is not far away and like any other celebration holiday, 
we start preparations weeks in advance.
The first fun activity done was to create painted eggs.

This year 'Miss four' assisted.
Her colour choice of paint was pink and purple.
The eggs are polystyrene foam eggs which were purchased from 'Dollar Value' craft section.

Emilee Rose's eggs were placed into an egg carton and used on the Easter table display.

 We added a glass vase of pretty flowers with a ripped rag fabric knotted bow.
Some nests and birds eggs.
And jars of mini Easter eggs.

The flowers are gerberas and chrysanthemums.

Birds nest
I love to collect found nests and eggs...
I think they are incredibly beautiful!
But these eggs in this nest are actually crafted by a potter.

The painted eggs are also hanging from a branch with more found nests mingled in between.

Easter Eggs
Jars of mini eggs greet visitors to 'Mia Bella Passions homestead',
as this table is right by the front entrance.

Easter Cake
Every year we bake an Easter cake.
What's your Easter tradition?

This years cake was a banana cake.
You'll find the Classic Banana Cake recipe HERE.

A simple cake completely overloaded with chocolate toppings! 
Eggs, bunnies and flake.
Nom NOm NOM!
