(Use Your) Imagination Sweetiepie...

...because I'm too busy having a full-on mouthgasm to think of a better name for these things.  They're a little bit like cheesecake, a little bit like frozen yoghurt, and a lot like "OMG SO DELICIOUS COME HOME WITH ME AND COOK FOR ME EVERY SINGLE DAY".

'Imagination Sweetiepie' is actually the name of the recipe, by the way.
If that wasn't clear.

They were so simple to make, too! I made five tiny ones, in cupcake cases (it's a calorie thing), but you can go ahead and make a bigger one, which would be a fairly decadent dessert for one or two, or just scale up the amounts.


  • 3 Bourbon Biscuits (these do tend to be vegan, but double check your specific variety.  For those in the US, try dark chocolate Oreos, which I gather are vegan.)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Vegan Margarine (I used Vitalite again)
  • 100g Soya Yoghurt
  • 1 Teaspoon of Jam (any kind.  Jelly, to American readers.)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Icing Sugar

  1. Crush the bourbon biscuits.  Melt the vitalite, and mix together.  Spread over the bottom of the cupcake cases, and put in the fridge for five minutes.
  2. Mix together the other ingredients.  Spoon equal amounts over the chocolate crusts, and put into the freezer for around three hours.
These are seriously delicious and moreish (which is why I made a relatively small amount).  You could use lemon-curd or marmalade in place of the jam/jelly, or spice the yoghurt with cinnamon, all-spice, ginger, or whatever you like.

I think I'll make a version of these using spiced custard for the topping, maybe with the chocolate crust going up the sides of the dish, rather than just on the base, or using my ice cream recipe as the centre.  That would be SO good.  I can just imagine it.  Maybe dotted with cherries.  Creamy, chocolatey, caramel-y, soft, crunchy, with such a sweet, delicious tang from the cherries...

Nutritional content of this entire recipe, according to MFP is 466 calories, 49g of carbs, 6g of protein, 27g of fat, and 33g of sugar. So now you know why I made five small ones instead. The nutrients of each of those are 93 calories, 10g of carbs, 1g of protein, 5g of fat, and 7g of sugar. Which is much better. Make them for a party or something.
