Mixed Berry Romanov

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by morgainegeiser

The traditional version of this simple Russian dish is to make it by marinating fresh berries in fruit-flavored liqueur for about an hour and then topping it with whipped cream. This simple version uses orange juice for marinating and vanilla yogurt for the topping.

I used orange juice concentrate instead of liqueur. This was really good and the kids liked it too! Reviewed for the May Veg*n Recipe Swap.
