I started the year pretty strong with some fresh fashion posts and also worked out quite often so I wanted to share one of our Christmas and NYE desserts we indulged in and it tasted amazing plus it is super easy and quick to make – always a plus for desserts cause they can definitely take quite some time to make.
Since I didn´t have a dessert bowl I went with these pretty gold rim glasses I got from H&M Home years ago. I just love the way the dessert looked in the glasses and the portions still weren´t too big.
– low-fat quark
– frozen mango or fresh (however you like it)
– vanilla sugar
I mixed the mascarpone with the low-fat quark and the vanilla sugar. I really don´t have written down the amount I used, I used mixed it together until I liked the taste. But I would say mascarpone and low-fat quark can be the same amount.
Let the frozen mango thaw overnight and blend it the next morning until it is smooth.
So for the Giotto balls I used a rolling pin to crush them.
That´s it so far in terms of preparation. Now get your glasses and start assembling your layered dessert.
I went with a layer of Giotto, mascarpone mix, mango, Giotto, mascarpone mix, cream and topped it of with some whole Giotto and physalis.
Everyone loved it on Christmas so I made it again for NYE. To be honest you could exchange the fruit for any you like. Would be super cute with strawberries for Valentine´s Day as well.
Christmas festivities are right around the corner and in today´s post I wanted to share this quick and easy but good looking mocktail with you. I made it a mocktail cause this way everyone can have a sip but you could easily add some champagne or vodka if you like.
So for the ingredients this is what I used:
– cranberry juice
– grapefruit juice
– sparkling water
– pomegranate seeds
– crushed ice
– alkohol if needed
All I did was mix the two juices and the water in equal parts and put crushed ice into the glasses. Then I poured in the mixture and added pomegranate seeds on top. Et voilá it looks super cute. You could also add some greenery like rosemary if desired.
After editing the photos I thought this would also be a great gift for a hostess. Take the tray and the glasses with the golden rim and add the juices plus a bottle of champagne to it and a fresh pomegranate and rosemary stems. Wrap it in clear wrapping foil and you have another great gift.
it was a pretty relaxed weekend over here with lots of naps and food other than that I caught on blog stuff and we baked gingerbread cookies together with Emilia.
It was her first time doing something like that and since she loves to help in the kitchen she was super happy about it and of course ate some of the dough too but I mean that´s what baking is all about am I right?!
The gingerbread dough was pre-made and cooled so it was pretty easy to handle. In fact I got it from the food section of Ikea. Yes you heard that right. We went to Ikea just for cookie dough.
All of my decor like the gingerbread baloon is from Pink Dots Party Store. You can shop after seasons and / or colors so it is a pretty easy experience. I get so many of my party stuff from there no matter the ocassion.
