Cherry and white chocolate dessert is a delicious, greedy, healthy summer treats, rich in freshness and nourishment.
When the cherries are in season, I love to prepare this quick and easy snack, also ideal for serving as a dessert. Great with other fresh seasonal fruits (better if organic), I think the combination with cherries, yoghurt and white chocolate sauce is simply perfect.
White chocolate can be replaced with fresh cream for an even softer texture; dessert wine can be omitted or replaced with sour cherry syrup; almonds can be replaced with pistachios or cashews.
For a perfect dessert, cherries are better not too ripe but crispy at the right point.
