I am so excited to share this new series of blog posts with you!
I am fully embracing the mermaid lifestyle and will be sharing mermaid lifestyle tips, crafts and mermaid food ideas!
The first treat I’m bringing you is so much fun and would be perfect for mermaid parties! It’s a mermaid yoghurt dessert (in a fish bowl!).

This is incredibly easy but looks so effective (and tastes great!).
You Will Need:
- 450g blackberry/blueberry yoghurt
- 500g greek style yoghurt
- white chocolate
- silicone mermaid moulds*
- gold sprinkles
- blue food colouring
- edible food shimmer*
- goldfish type bowl to serve (I got mine from TK Maxx food section)
- jelly ‘goldfish’ (optional)
Melt the white chocolate using a double boiler. Dust the silicone moulds with edible sparkle dust. I then poured the chocolate into the seashell moulds, but NOT the mermaid moulds. I added a tiny amount of blue food colouring to the remaining chocolate, mixed it well and then poured the rest into the mermaid moulds. They turned out slightly green. However, from experience, using too much blue will change the consistency of the chocolate. It actually ended up being a perfect colour for my logo! Leave to set in the fridge.
Take most of your greek style yogurt and add some blue food colouring. Remember to keep some back as you will need it later!
Layer the blueberry yoghurt at the bottom of the bowl. Then add the blue greek yoghurt, spread out evenly. (I gave the bowl a good shake to let it all settle).
Then add the white greek yoghurt to one side of the bowl. Then add a blob in the middle (this is where the mermaid tail will go!).
Drizzle honey over the white yoghurt at the side. Add gold decorations then position the seashells and mermaid tail!
TIP: Don’t add the honey until you are ready to serve… otherwise it drips down/goes everywhere (see below!)
Also, there is the option to add gummy fish… however, it didn’t really turn out how I imagined. If doing it again, I would probably skip them.
Admire your masterpiece and be the envy of your guests at your mermaid party! A (vaguely) healthy, treat to be enjoyed with fellow merfolk!
When you are ready to serve, take out the mermaid tail (and some seashells) and mix the remaining yogurt really well.
Cody enjoyed it! He was a little surprised by the gummy fish!
