EN ESPAÑOL
Helado de frutillas o fresas para Navidad












Helado de frutillas para Navidad? Por supuesto pero lo que quizas es obvio aquí en Sud América en el Norte ni en Europa no es tanto (aunque siempre se encuentran recetas de helados en todo tiempo)
Recomiendo este helado porque es una pasusa refrescante (en medio de comida más pesada)
es delicioso, fáicl y saludable. Está hecho de yogurt natural (o yogurt griego) frutillas, zumo de naranjas y lleva splenda (o algun subtituto similar. A mí me encnatan los helados en cualquier tiempo y se me ha dado la idea que es algo delicioso para Navidad.
Tambien se puede acompañar de una salsa de chocolate tibia y queda delicioso.




Ingredientes

300 grs. fresas congeladas (hay todo el año)
o 300 grs. de fresas o frutillas frescas, lavadas y secas
500 grs. yogurt natural o griego (En Chile usé el siempre fiel Soprole natural (4))
(Soprole  me debería auspiciar)
4 cucharadas de Splenda (u otro substituto de azúcar)
2 cucharadas de crema espesa
1 c ucharada de ralladura de naranja
2 cucharadas de jugo de naranja natural
hojas de menta para adornar

Preparación

Moler las frutillas en una licuadora o en el procesador con el jugo y la ralladura de naranja.
En un bol mezclar el yogurt,la crema, y el azúcar splenda (u otro), y luego agregar las frutillas ya hechas puré con el jugo de naranja. Mezclar bien.
Vaciar a un recipiente de metal y llevar  al Congelador o freezer por dos horas.
Luego retirar y batir suavemente, volver a llevar al congelador y dejar otras doas.
Servir con una cuchara especial para helado y colocar en copas,
Adornar con hojas de menta y frutillas.


Si se quiere salsa de chocolate hacer lo siguiente:

En una ollita pequeña calentar 100 grs. de chocolate en barra, colocar sobre otra olla a baño maría, agregarle al chocolate dos cucharadas de crema y una cucharada de azúcar, derretir y revolver suavemente hasta que esté espeso. Dejar enfriar un poco y servir con el helado de fresas.

    The greek yogurt is a good replacement for cream - much healthier.

  4. Gloria,
    Encuentro muy buena tu sugerencia de un helado casero de postre para Navidad y si sobra para el vinito al día siguiente.
    Acá hay frutillas todo el año, pero estas de invierno no tienen el mismo sabor.
