A friend, who is feeding her family with intention, recently shared she is trying to eat a rainbow. What an important concept. I teach how to "Eat a Rainbow" in my Nourish Your Life workshop, which is now (finally) available on video and audio here.
What she said inspired me to share a "Purple" recipe...plus fresh blackberries are coming in season, so it is an excuse to make this snack/dessert.
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1-2 tsp minced lemon verbena leaves (if you do not have this herb, lemon zest can substitute)
- 1/2 tsp ground or grated dried ginger or 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 10 or more blackberries
- lemon verbena leaves for garnish
Mix the yogurt, minced lemon verbena, and ginger. "Marinate" in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Top with blackberries and lemon verbena leaf (or lemon slice). Makes 2 servings.
