Challenge Book #31 - Greek yoghurt with condensed milk and oranges
A few weeks back I talked about my love of summer. This may have been a bit rash and precipitous. After two weeks of 35 plus temperatures I am rapidly heading towards over it. OVER. IT. Is there anything worse than feeling those beads of sweat sliding down your back and your legs. Ick!!!!
I have seen just about every movie that is out in a desparate effort to soak up some air conditioning. I highly recommend Gran Torino, Doubt, Slumdog Millionaire and Bolt. Avoid Valkyrie like the plague, it is a surprisingly dull movie. Even curly hair can't help Tom Cruise, who projects all the charisma of a carrot. Not even a of baby carrot which can be kinda cute, in a carroty kind of way. More of a big old knobbly hairy carrot.
Inevitably, I have been avoiding the kitchen as much as possible. The thought of turning on the oven or a hot plate is an anathema. I'm all about the quick and the cool.
Which is how I came to this dessert. No cooking required. None. Nada. It is so easy. So simple. And so good. It is seriously delicious!! I think it is the perfect emergency dessert. Tins of condensed milk will sit happily in the pantry. And I always have yoghurt and oranges in the house. I'm so happy I found this recipe.
This recipe comes from Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros - which is by the way Book #31 in the KJ wants a Kitchen Aid Challenge. This is one of my all time favourite cookbooks. You only have to browse through my blog to see that. I have made dozens of its recipes and there are dozens more I want to try. It's like this book was written just for me!!
Greek Yoghurt with Condensed Milk and Oranges
(adapted from Like Apples for Jam)
100ml sweetened condensed milk

juice and finely grated rind of 1 small orange
Slice the skin from the oranges and slice into large wheels.
Mix together the condensed milk, half the rind and 4 tablespoons of juice. Slowly mix into the yoghurt.
Cover and put into the fridge for a few hours until it is soft creamy pudding.
Serve with a few orange slices, a dollop of yoghurt, a sprinkling of rind and a dribbling of juice.
