5-MINUTE HEALTHY STRAWBERRY FROZEN YOGURT
4 cups frozen strawberries
3 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey
1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or full fat)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes.
Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 1 month.
I prefer a more tart frozen yogurt, but you can add additional agave nectar or honey if you want a sweeter-tasting dessert.
Fresh strawberries can be used in place of frozen, however the fresh strawberries must be frozen solid.
Most cookbooks offer directions on how to make your meal, but this might be the first that actually helps you cook it. The Bible of Barbecue was created to promote Tramontina, a Brazilian line of kitchen supplies, and it’s far more useful than your standard cookbook. One page is made out of coal so you can use it to cook, another can be used to sharpen your knife, others are made of salt or turn into an apron, and the cover is wood so you can use it as your cutting board. Everything is organized in the order you would need to cook up some Brazilian steak. It will be available in select bookstores in Brazil soon and probably tough to get your hands on, though, since you’ll tear it apart for one meal, it might be better to just look at the pictures of it.

THE MOTHER OF ALL SNOW CONES
No one is certain whether Granita evolved from mixing fruit and ice on Mt Etna or Middle Eastern sherbet or something Marco Polo brought back from Asia. But all you need to know is that it can be served in a myriad of flavors from traditional coffee to watermelon and is quite simply delicious.
