Frozen Strawberry Fluffs

  
I don’t always leaf through French magazines (mainly because my ability to understand the language is far from perfect), but when I do, I find recipes worthy of a PoshDish twist! What, may you ask? Here’s a hint: a little something to keep you cool. 

With all the heat we’ve been getting this summer, there’s no point in turning on the oven to bake. Instead, cold treats should be the only thing on the menu –like these frozen strawberry fluffs. Though the original recipie calls for a number of ingredients, including egg whites and a whole lot of sugar, ThePoshDish version cut it down to three and subbed in honey. In other words, you have every reason to give them a try.

Ingredients

3 cups fresh (not frozen) strawberries 

275 ml whipping cream

2 tbsp honey 

Cupcake moulds

Spoons or popsicle sticks 

Instructions:

1. In a large bowl, pour the whipping cream and beat using an electric mixer or until it forms stiff peaks.

2. Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor along with the honey, and mix on high until they have become a liquid. 

4. Fold the strawberry-honey mix into the whipped cream.

5. Pour into cupcake moulds (either the tin ones or silicone ones –this option is great as it will leave a nice texture on the frozen treat). Stick the teaspoons or popsicle sticks in the middle of each.

6. Freeze for 4-6 hours.

So that’s all it takes to make these cute little fluffs! Enjoy –or as the French would say, “bon appetit”!
