You name it


Most of us love to have something sweet to eat post dinner isn't it? But for a few us its an absolute must to have sweet after dinner. My hubby is one of them. If he doesn't find anything in the fridge he comes over to me and asks sweetly, "veetle yedavadu sweet iruka?" (have got any sweet at home), in a tone capable of melting a rock. So I usually make sure there is something.

But, the other day I didn't have anything to make at home other than a few cherries. So I dipped them in vanilla frosting and chilled it for 1 hour. It tasted divine after that. Simple and it took me less than 5 minutes to make this. (excluding the chilling time, you will need 1 hour for the frosting to get hard around the cherry).

I was inspired by Godiva's famous strawberries dipped in chocolate.

I haven't thought of a name for this one. I could come up with, cochees (cold cherries). Would anyone like to name it?

  1. Looks so yummy. Cochees is too sweet naming, I don't think can find any other better name :) Btw, I like to have sweets before eating lunch , dinner or even anythin else :). There is a scientific reason behind it ... Sweets unlike other food, goes directly to the intestine for its digestion (other food gets digested a bit in stomach, then intestine). If sweet is consumed after food, it is let to ferment in the stomach for a longer duration :( leading to gas trouble, acidity etc.

  10. Dear Madhu,
    Thank you for complimenting my saree.
    I did use agave nectar for sweetness in the avocado icecream.Agave nectar is a healthy alternative for sugar(it is a plant extract).
