Coffee & Chocolate Cup with Iced Yogurt.

Let’s exercise our mind a bit and those of us living in the northern hemisphere close our eyes and imagine a white sand beach, with some coconuts by the hammocks we are resting at, crystal blue waters sparkling a few meters ahead from us, a wooden table at hand reach and this Fresh Cup ready for us. We could go on and on imagining a good looking man coming along our way and asking us… would you mind if I sit right beside you?… But, I will just speak about the Coffee and Chocolate Cup today ;D
This is my entry for the Left Over Queen’s Royal Joust. I’m nearly out of time this month but I wouldn’t miss it for anything :D. This month’s ingredients were: Coffee, honey and black pepper, a fantastic trio from my point of view. And this is what I came up with: a Fresh dessert. If you like it, please head over this month’s forum and vote for my recipe :D
First of all we need to prepare the Iced yogurt: take 2 natural non-sugared yogurts, 100 ml of water and 50 grs of sugar.
* Mix and stir the sugar with the water until it dissolves and then add the yogurts, stir until you get an homogeneous liquid. Pour inside a recipient and place in the freezer. The day after you can start with the rest of ingredients.
Now, get the Coffee and Chocolate cup started. You will need: 250 ml of coffee, 300 ml of milk, 75 grs of black chocolate (I used 70% cacao), 75 grs of sugar, 2 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon of corn flour, fresh ground black pepper and honey.

  • First of all prepare a good coffee and reserve.
  • In a small bowl mix the 2 egg yolks with the corn flour and just a shot of the milk you have ready. Stir and add the pepper ( use the grinder 3 times, that’s enough). Stir again and reserve.
  • In a small pot pour the milk, coffee, sugar and the chocolate in pieces and don’t stop stirring until the chocolate has melted away. When it starts boiling (have it at low heat), add the mixture with the eggs and stir no stop until it starts boiling again, then take away from the heat immediately.
  • Pour inside the cups or glasses and let cool down. When cold place in the fridge.
  • To prepare the cups: Take the yogurt we have in the freezer and scratch it with a fork to get the iced yogurt. Place over the Chocolate & Coffee cup and pour some honey on top. Decorate with some mint leaves.

For those of you living in the Southern hemisphere…. simply enjoy the summer and believe me, life will be better with this Coffee & Chocolate cup at hand reach ;D

You know that good-looking man coming our way? He has nothing on these yogurt cups! Sorry, good-looking man: I have to finish these first. ;)

I actually found the concept great but the recipe difficult to follow. How much yogurt exactly? Also, does the egg yolk mixture need to be WHISKED rather than stirred – once I put it on the burner, because the yolk wasn’t completely thinned, it cooked and remained chunky. Thus my “chocolate coffee” portion was filled with cooked egg whites? I assume with these details straightened out it would be a delicious recipe.

Hola Anonymous and welcome to Spanish Recipes!
I must addmit you are right in your suggestions… my english is not as sharpened as your kitchen knifes and sometimes I could use better words to describe the processes… sorry about that. Yes, I should have said whisk instead of stir. The portion of the yogurt is what we buy here in the supermarket, I think that it contains about 250 grs.
If you have any other doubts when reading a recipe… please ask before you perform it. YOu would have been happier with the result :D
