|Yoart Grec avec Mures|
Two winters ago, Andrew and I fell in love with a Blackberry Yogurt we bought in St. Barth. The yogurt or, more correctly Yaourt Grec avecs Mures, even made it onto our “15 Things You Must Eat in St. Barth” post and our friends Mary and John made a beeline for it when they went down to the island right after we did. Now, I had pegged the calorie count at 80, which had it been correct, would have been the best tasting 80 calories I ever consumed. Most unfortunately, Mary read the label correctly and the calorie count zoomed up to 280.
Still not bad but 200 calories I hadn’t counted on. And I hadn’t counted on how much we loved the blackberries in the rich, creamy thick yogurt. It’s blackberry season so when Andrew dug through his recipe files, he was delighted to discover a Bon Appetit with a glorious Cover Girl. More properly, Blackberries sitting atop a lemon curd filling and topped with Italian Meringue. Calories be damned, he decided to make this glorious confection. Even if it took all day.
