Cherry and pistachios dessert (Postre helado de cerezas y pistachios)




I made this dessert recently not especially for Christmas. Just because I had frozen cherries (and some fresh cherries) and I wanted to use them.

The day before Christmas was difficult, because I had a very strong bee sting on my hand and arm. I had  fever and almost could not do anything I did as I could the food and the next day I started taking some remedies.

I'm a little better today although I still have my hand inflamed. It's difficult to do things with a hand in bad conditions.

In any case I did this dessert yesterday, you can use frozen cherries or frozen raspberries, the base of the dessert is ricotta and yogurt.
And I love the pistachios they put a note of color to everything.

Ingredients


425 grams ricotta cheese (15 ounces)
1 cup of sugar
225 grams plain greek yogurt
1 cup frozen cherries or drained bottled morello cherries
Some fresh cherries for serving  (optional)
150 grams chopped pistachios


Method

Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with foil, extending the foil over long sides for handles.

Beat ricotta and sugar in a large bowl  by hand or electric mixer in medium speed until smooth.

Fold in the  greek yogurt and then 100 grams of pistachios and cherries. Spoon mixture into the prepared pan, smoothing top. Cover and freeze overnight.

The following day unmold onto a serving platter. Let stand for at least 10 minutes or until softened slightly before slicing. Garnish with some cherries and pistachios if desired.

  14. I am so sorry about your sting, Gloria :( I had a very bad one from a hornet this summer and my arm was swollen and sore for a week or more so I know exactly how you felt. What a gorgeous dessert and you deserved it after what you had been through. Hope you had a nice Christmas in spite of your arm ♥

  17. This sounds and looks delightful. I imagine it is very refreshing too. Yum!

    I am so sorry to hear about your bee sting. Ouch. Getting an inflamed hand can be painful too. Hopefully a remedy works to help the swelling go down (in the US people take Benadryl when they have a reaction like that because it helps combat it- but I am not sure what is in the medicine). Good luck with your hand!

  20. Stings are not nice, and I do hope all is a lot better now.

    This looks a very nice recipe and one that could be adapted to make it lower in carbs, (especially important for my diabetic husband), I'm sure I could use a sugar substitute instead ...

    Sending my good wishes for 2018

    All the best Jan

  21. hi Jan ! Of course you can use substitute sugar in all my recipes. My dad was diabetic so I made speciak dessert for him.
    happy new year !
