When my our youngest was little she pronounced yogurt as Ogret. It stuck. I have to remind myself that Ogret is not how the rest of the world pronounces it.
Greek Ogret is interesting. It’s healthy. It’s high in protein. And it can do special things to your tummy. Both my husband and I should be consuming Greek Ogret but let’s face it, Ogret is only really good when it’s covered in honey, or fruit preserves, or Oreos!
So when my friend said she mixed the berry stuff from Epicure in her Greek Ogret – she loved it!! She didn’t gag anymore! I feel this is important when you are consuming food, gagging isn’t good for anyone.
So I was over the moon when I found this little gem in my consultant box. Mmmmm…let’s give it a try! A cup of Greek Ogret, a tablespoon of Summer Berry Magic and wah-la – a tasty treat that is really good for you.
As I was planning what delicacy I would make for dinner, I thought, “Desert! Let’s have desert!” Making desert at our house is like me doing the laundry, or ironing my husbands shirts, or cleaning the toilets. It’s a special occasion and should be acknowledged, recorded, and blogged about. Tonight, I had a plan!
“Lets take the tasty treat from this morning, put it on a graham cracker crust and freeze it! YES, it’s over 90 degrees here and a frozen treat would be just the thing.”
So I did just that.
- I melted a1/2 Tablespoon of butter in each of my 2 ramekins.
- I mixed in about 1/4 cup of crushed graham crackers to make the crust.
- In a separate bowl, I mixed 1 TBS of Summer Berry with a cup of Greek Ogret and divided it into the ramekins and put them in the freezer.
At dinner when I announce that there was desert I received a raised eyebrow. After all, we had just finished a delicious chicken and veggie dinner with fresh Poco Picante (I didn’t know what Poco Picante was until today….now I serve it over chicken and veggies which plates lovely for a great presentation!) Look at me…make new things!!!
