|Prep Time||30 mins|
- 1 cup sultanas (170 grams)
- 2 tbsp brown rum (40 mls)
- 3 egg yolk (75 grams)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (10 mls)
- 5 tbsp Natvia (80 grams)
- 3 cups reduced-fat Greek natural yoghurt (780 grams)
- 1/4 cup cacao/cocoa powder (25 grams)
- 4 Italian sponge biscuits (50 grams)
- 1/4 cups coconut oil melted (60 mls)
- 100 grams dark chocolate (70%), melted
- 1 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen), to garnish (150 grams)
- Add the sultanas and rum together in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside for at least 2 hours or overnight if you have time.
- Line a small domed bowl with two layers of plastic wrap and set aside.
- Fill a saucepan with a cup of water and bring to the boil. Add the egg yolks, one teaspoon of the vanilla and 3 tablespoons of the Natvia to a heatproof bowl and set over the saucepan of boiling water making sure that the water doesn’t touch the bowl. Stir the egg yolks until they thicken slightly about 5-8 minutes. Set the egg yolks aside to cool slightly.
- Add 2 cups of the yoghurt, the sifted cacao/cocoa powder and rum soaked sultanas to cooled egg yolks and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the lined bowl.
- Line the top of the mixture with the sponge finger biscuits making sure to cover the entire top. Cut down the biscuits to fit the base to cover it fully.
- Place the bowl in the freezer and freeze overnight or until firm.
- Remove the semifreddo from the freezer and tip onto a serving platter making sure the sponge finger base is at the bottom.
- To make the topping, mix the remaining yoghurt, remaining Natvia, remaining vanilla and the melted coconut oil together in a small bowl. Spread the yoghurt mixture over the top of the out-turned pudding using an offset spatula. Once evenly covered place back into the freezer for an hour to freeze.
- Break up the dark chocolate into a small microwave-proof bowl and heat for 30-second increments until it has completely melted.
- Remove the pudding once the yoghurt layer has frozen and pour the chocolate over the top of the pudding so that it runs down the edges.
- Working quickly before the chocolate sets, top with a range of fresh or defrosted frozen berries.
- Let the Choc Rum & Raisin Semifreddo Pudding sit for 15 minutes to soften slightly before cutting into wedges and serving.
