Yogurt Strawberry Cake - The Perfect Dessert



No-Bake Yogurt Strawberry Cake is a light and refreshing dessert for a summer's day. The simple, fresh taste of berries combines with creamy yogurt, and the color contrast looks wonderful, too. Blueberries or raspberries make equally delicious alternatives to strawberries.

No-Bake Yogurt Strawberry Cake

You will need one spring form pan: 6" x 2-3/4"

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup non-fat vanilla CHOBANI yogurt
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced 
  • 2 envelopes powdered gelatin
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk or cream
  • berries to serve
  • 1 Tbsp, apricot jam or any other jam
  • fresh mint (you have to have mint for this dessert)

Directions:

Puree the strawberries, yogurt, and honey in a blender until very smooth. Soak the gelatin in a water, for about 3 minutes. Bring the milk or cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add the gelatin mixture, stir until dissolved. Whisk the milk mixture into strawberry-yogurt purée and pour into spring form pan.

Refrigerate the cake for about 4-5 hours, until firm, but best to leave it overnight. Before you unlock the spring form pan, run a knife around the edge of the cake.

Mix the different berries with apricot jam. Put on a top of the cake. Serve with fresh mint.

No eggs in this one? I don't do non-fat, guess a regular yoghurt will work too. I have to try this version with gelatin. Great recipe and fantastic photos! :)

Marina, you don't need eggs here at all. And regular yogurt will do just fine. Let me know if you try it!

Thanks Yelena!

Hi thanks for the recipe! If I use plain Greek yogurt, do u suggest I add a little more honey? Or tad of vanilla extract?

Yelena Strokin said...

Hello Iran, yes you can use more honey if you like and vanilla, or other extract, lemon or orange-)) It's up to you! I am sure it will be also perfect with different flavors. I hope you like it!

Eye-popping perfection photographic imagery here..food oscar for the imagery alone…Your blog truly stuns in every possible way…Clear, well researched (the background/history ) tutorials..New, bonafide fan who has just spent the last hour archiving various "wonders" from your culinary mind..Thank you for sharing your knowledge, artistry and culinary vision.

P.S. Almost forgot…I meant to not only "gush"….BUT wonder whether I can make this beautiful Yogurt Strawberry Cake with FROZEN berries as opposed to only fresh? In France the fresh ones are QUITE expensive now (and, alas, not in season) and I wonder if I might attempt this with frozen strawberries ..or even another type of berry? Thank you so much!

You are so welcome and than you for visiting my blog. And Yes, you can make the cake with frozen berries, even put some frozen berries on a top. I like it that way-) I use frozen berries a lot, specially in winter time, red currant for example-)
