One of the greatest perks of Run Swim Bike Cook is that it forces me to abandon my boring mealtime routines and try something daring in the kitchen. This week's culinary challenge--a spicy dessert--definitely surpassed my comfort zone. While I selected the recipe right away, it took a few days to garner enough courage to actually try it. Even as I served this dish to visiting family, I was full of apologies for using them as guinea pigs. In retrospect, I needn't have worried. Our jalapeño-lime frozen yogurt was pretty delectable, even if I do say so myself. A thousand thanks to RSBC for inspiring me to create a dessert that I never would have braved in a thousand years.
The recipe is super simple. Mix 1 container of plain Greek yogurt with a scant 3/4 cup sugar. Blend it until completely dissolved, or else the yogurt will be grainy. Add in the zest of a lime.
lime sauce and a few pieces of sugar cone for crunch. Sigh with pleasure as you travel to a happy place--creamy sweetness punctuated by tart, tang, and a hint of fire.
Thanks to Uncle Lance, Grandma Susie, Grandpa Charles, and NomiAnn for sharing it with us!
And as for the rest of RSBC, I've earned my dessert this week!
