Vanilla Ice Cream and Berries

This is a great go-to dessert year round, but especially in winter when fresh berries are no longer in season. Posting it now in case berries are not yet available in your region/stores, but this is equally good with fresh berries!

You can also serve plain Greek yogurt with berries, or for a totally yummy non-dairy and paleo version, try berries with coconut milk! Totally delish any season!

Tzatziki Sauce

This is a no frills, super easy, super yummy tzatziki sauce! Serve with fresh cut veggies as an appetizer, as a dressing for gyros, lamburgers or Greek salad. Any recipe that can be made in a food processor is a winner in my book!blog tzatziki1

Ingredients

  • 1 8oz container of Greek yogurt
  • 1 hothouse cucumber, peeled & diced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh dill (or dry)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Salt / pepper to taste

Directions

  • Put everything in a blender
  • Process until well combined
  • Transfer to a separate dish, cover and refrigerate
  • Let flavors meld for at least an hour for best taste

This Tzatziki sauce is not quite as thick as some recipes – I saved a few steps by NOT pressing water out of chopped cucumber or de-seeding it, but it tasted great!
