Yogurt And Berry Terrine with Strawberry coulis

Eidhul Adha is here!! So its pretty chaotic on the streets of Male' everyone is running or rather zooming around trying to head to the islands or resorts or abroad for Eid holidays.

So for this Eid I have a very elegant dish , quite a show stopper I would say  one that took me ages to perfect. Great desert to serve  for a special occasion .

I love berries, but they are sooooo expensive here in Maldives, I mean its not something you can buy every day to enjoy..  The first time I ate this  terrine was in Bandos Island Resort and the taste just left its mark on me that I finally realized maybe its really a yogurt panacotta.  After a lot of ups and downs I finally found the perfect recipe.   I made this  for my in laws once , when they came over for lunch. They love to eat ( thank god!!! I hate picky eaters)  and desert is one thing they all look forward to. So this was a nice light desert to enjoy after a heavy meal.   I bought a  berry smoothie mix from Fantasy Store and added some extra  strawberries.  If you have fresh vanilla beans, please use it here, if not use vanilla extract or essence.

Recipe : Yogurt and Berry Terrine with strawberry coulis ( yogurt panacotta recipe from Smitten Kitchen)

250ml cream ( I used whipping cream )
3 tbsp milk
1 cup  sugar
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp good quality vanilla essence
2 cups  plain yogurt ( greek yogurt if available), whisked
3 tsp gelatin
1 cup mixed berry juice (Lacnour)
3 tsp gelatin
1 cup   mixed berries

extra cup of strawberries and  a few tablespoons of sugar for the coulis

First , take a small loaf pan, line it with cling film so that there are lot of cling film over lapping. Take 1/2 cup of berry juice and  pour this over the gelatin (3 tsp) and set a side for it to " bloom".  While this happens , gently heat the rest of the berry juice till just hot.  Stir in the gelatin into this and  mix well to  dissolve.  Add a spoon of this mixture into the bottom of the prepared tray and then arrange the berries on top,

 and pour the rest of the  berry juice over the berries and pop in the fridge to set.

While the berry half sets, warm the cream, along with the seeds from the vanilla pod , if using. Let the mixture just start to bubble. Place the remaining 3 tsp gelatin in a small bowl and pour 3 tsp milk and let it bloom.
Stir in sugar into the cream and stir to dissolve.  Remove from stove and stir in gelatin and  use a whisk to help it dissolve faster.  (Add vanilla if using  vanilla essence). Cool slightly.

Now whisk the mixture into the  yogurt and stir well. Pour over the now almost set berry mixture. Let it chill in fridge for 4 hours or so till set.

Prepare coulis by blending strawberries with  enough sugar to sweeten it and pass through a sieve for a smooth sauce or just  serve after blending.

Carefully remove the  terrine once it sets and cut into slices with the strawberry coulis.


Wishing all the readers and all muslims around the world a Happy and Peaceful Eid. Have a great weekend!!


  1. That's a fantastic berry dessert, Nammi. I can't resist anything with berries.

  2. This is my kind of dessert! I love it! I am already thinking about making this with blueberries, strawberries are out of season now here, but my freezer is full with blueberries I picked last week, 7 kg of them.
