Balsamic Strawberries and ginger Semifreddo (Semifreddo de frutillas con vinagre balsamico y jengibre)






I love Semifreddo like a Christmas dessert, is delicious, simple and you can make the day before.
You can use frozen or fresh strawberries or if you prefer raspberries.
Serve garnished with some strawberries and mint leaves.
Balsamic strawberries is something special.

Note: the original recipe was with cream cheese but I change by greek yogurt and was amazing!

  9. In effetti i semifreddo sono un bell'aiuto quando si hanno un sacco di cose da preparare. Poi io trovo che siano anche freschi e più leggeri delle classiche tortone farcite quindi si gustano di più. Il tuo ha un aspetto fresco e delizioso
