Spring/Summer

Cherry and white chocolate dessert

A delicious, greedy, healthy summer cups, 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. Of course, there are various equally delicious: white chocolate can be replaced with (vegan) cream for an even softer texture; dessert wine can be omitted or replaced withsour 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
