Frozen Yoghurt

Delicious and instant dessert

I am holding on to the feeling of late summer for as long as possible.  And what food epitomizes summer more than ice cream?

Frozen yoghurt! It is just as icy and creamy but its healthier and more refreshing.

What a fabulously tasty and easy way to have your daily serving of fruit! A desert that is actually good for you!

 

Ingredients
Serves 1-2

125g frozen cherries
100g non-fat Greek yoghurt (I like using 0% Total Yoghurt)
a few drops of vanilla essence
optional: a few drops of lemon juice

 Recipe

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Blend scraping down the sides regularly (this is the only effort involved).
  3. Done!
  4. You can prepare the frozen yoghurt before dinner and keep it in the freezer until desert. Take into account that after a while it will become solid.

 Tips & Variations

This recipe can be made with many types of fruit:

  • blueberries
  • strawberries (allow them to defrost for 15 minutes before putting them in the blender


If you are looking for extra sweetness you can add

  • 1/4 tsp stevia
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
  • 1tsp honey

    What if I just blend with fresh fruit? will that make a difference? I rarely buy frozen fruit. They are more expensive than the real fruits. Please let me know!

      Now as coincidence would have it – I have this post for a ricotta strawberry cake that might tickel yoru tastebuds. But really home made ricotta is so good it works on any scone or pancake with a little jam or fruit.

      So jealous that you live somewhere were real fruit is more affordable than frozen!! You would want to make this dish with fruit straight from the freezer (it is what gives the ‘ice cream’ consistency, but I see no reason why you cannot just throw some fresh fruit in there rather than buy it.
