Preparation of Yoghurt and Vanilla Espuma
Mix 25 ml of milk with three egg yolks. Put 100 ml of milk, 125 ml of heavy cream, one vanilla pod and sugar to a pot and cook until it thickens: dip a cooking spoon into the mixture, hold it with the back facing upwards and blow on it. If wavy lines start developing, the consistency is correct.

Then stir until cold and stir the yoghurt into the cooled mass. Pour the mixture through the iSi Funnel & Sieve into a 0.5 L Whipper, screw on 1 N20 Cream Charger and shake vigorously. Cool the appliance in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

Spread the fruit glaze on a plate and arrange the pyramid and espuma directly from the Whipper.
