This divine dish can be prepared ahead, so it's a great dessert for a large dinner party.


2 Tbsp passionfruit pulp
300g strawberries (thawed, frozen strawberries will work fine)
1 Tbsp icing sugar, sifted
¼ cup low-GI sugar*
3 eggs
560g low-kilojoule vanilla yoghurt

1. Line the long sides of a 6-cup loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving enough hanging over sides to fold over and enclose semifreddo. Spread passionfruit pulp over base.

2. Hull 200g strawberries and coarsely purée them with a fork. Stir in icing sugar until combined.

3. Using a small blender or a pestle and mortar, grind low-GI sugar to a fine powder.

4. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and ground sugar for five minutes until pale and thick.

5. Gently stir yoghurt through. Pour into prepared pan. Gently spoon dollops of strawberry over mixture (it will sink slightly). Fold over plastic wrap to enclose and freeze overnight.

6. Next day, 20 minutes before serving, transfer semifreddo to main part of fridge to soften slightly. Unfold plastic wrap and turn out semifreddo onto a plate. Remove plastic wrap. Slice semifreddo and divide among serving plates. Serve with remaining strawberries.

* Low-GI sugar has large granules, so you need to grind it very finely to mix with the eggs.
