Whipped Up

I simply whipped some things together for dessert.
That’s why it looks so fluffy!

It’s no surprise that strawberries are involved in the recipe, my life depends on strawberries nowadays!

For this recipe I got inspired by cheese cake type of treats and whipped cream with strawberries. I always read about using graham crackers to make a crust when making cheese cake, we don’t have anything like this in Belgium so I used tiny oatmeal cookies. The crust is more a cookie dough consistency than crunchy though, just warning you!

‘Whipped up Strawberry Treat’
makes 2 big or 4 tiny portions

  • 4 oatmeal cookies (diameter about 5 cm, sugar-free) and 4 t of oatbran, I guess you could use graham crackers when you have them at your disposal
  • 1 t of peanut butter
  • 1 t of maple syrup
  • 4 t of soy milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 125 gr of yoghurt (I used soy yoghurt, I highly recommend using Greek yoghurt)
  • 8 gr of powdered sugar or vanilla sugar
  • zeste of a lemon
  • 2 enormous strawberries (or any other fruit really)

For the crust: Crumble the oatmeal cookies. Melt 1 t of peanut butter in the microwave, add 1 t of maple syrup and 4 t of soy milk. Stir everything until combined, add the cookie crumbs and some oatbran if necessary until you reach a desired consistency. Divide the mixture over 2 big or 4 tiny cups and place them in the fridge to firm up.

For the cream: Whip up the egg white with the sugar until you get a white foam. Transfer the yoghurt to a bowl and add the foam to it, spoonful by spoonful, gently folding it under the yoghurt. Sprinkle with some lemon zeste, maybe add some more sugar if you think it is still too sour.

Top the crust with the cream, chop up some strawberries and sprinkle them on top. Other topping options: granola and chocolate chips.

Result: Fluffy cream with tart strawberries combined with the crunchiness of the granola and the chewiness of the dough crust!

Love, M.

  1. this sounds so good! and fluffy 😉

  2. How was the taste? curious on the taste…

    • The cream tastes a bit like vanilla (cause to me soy yoghurt always tastes a bit like vanilla) but otherwise just like fluffy yoghurt, which matches great with the strawberries, then you have the crust with a hint of peanut butter and a lot of oatcookie taste and that combined in a mouthful taste pretty divine 🙂

    • I’m glad you asked how it tasted because I was about ask just that. From the picture it did not look like yogurt at all.

      • The structure isn’t like yoghurt at all, it’s more a whipped cream because of the egg foam but it does still taste like yoghurt only a bit fainter 🙂

  3. The soy yoghurt not sour? I not sure, I did self made yoghurt from milk, never try with soy yet.
