“Une évasion” was the name of a very small tart, filled with lime mousse and topped with raspberries that were drizzled with a limey, raspberry glaze. Yumm
I love the combination of lime and raspberry. The first time I had this combination was at a small pastry shop in Angers. I was lucky enough to be spending 5 weeks there and every Wednesday and Friday, I would go into town to buy this French pastry which was called “une évasion”.
That was in my younger days, at my age now I can’t afford to eat pastries every day, no matter how small!!
But this smoothie recreates in a small way those creamy, luscious French flavors. Et voilà !
1 – Ingredients for the French Smoothie
- 12 – 14 oz. raspberries (reserve a few for garnish) – des framboises
- 12 oz. yogurt – du yaourt
- 1 lime – un citron vert
2 – Directions for the French Smoothie
1. Wash and drain the raspberries.
Laver et égoutter les framboises
2. Put the yogurt and raspberries in a blender. Squeeze in half of the lime.
Mettez le yaourt et les framboises dans un mixer. Pressez-y la moitié du citron vert.
3. Blend. Taste. Add more of the lime juice as desired.
Mixez. Goûtez. Ajouter plus de jus de citron vert si vous le désirez.
3 – Serving Your French Smoothie
Pour the smoothies into pretty glasses. Decorate with reserved raspberries, or a leaf of mint, and serve.
Versez les smoothies dans de jolis verres. Décorez avec des framboises que vous aviez mises de côté, ou un feuille de menthe, et servez.
Bon appétit !
