What do you do when life hands you lemons?

You sit there and stare for a while; lost at what to do next.

…but sooner or later you are bound to get hungry…

So you grab the sour lemons, add some silky yoghurt to make a big tub of creamy frozen yoghurt.

And then you sit there staring for a while longer. ….but at least you are holding a fabulously soothing desert in your hands.


Serves 1 (or should it really be 2)

250g Greek yoghurt (Total 0% is my favourite)
1/2 -1 lemon
2 tbsp honey (or 1tbsp honey, 1 tbsp agave)



  1. Put the yoghurt into a wide freezer tub.
  2. Grate half the lemon and zest it. Stir into the yoghurt.
  3. Add the honey and mix well. Taste and adjust the amount of lemon if necessary.
  4. Place into the freezer for 1-2 hours.
  5. Stir well with a fork.
  6. Return to the feezer and freeze until solid.
  7. Place into the foodprocessor and process until smooth. (If the yoghurt is too hard allow it to soften for a few minutes).

    I see at least you are thinking about blogging. What a simple and straightforward recipe, worth making in a matter of seconds. Thanks for sharing. I have a heap of oranges, I somehow came up with this idea of an orange a day, keeps what away? haven’t decided yet but I shall use the oranges at hand. They are very sweet and they’ll also infuse some colour to the dessert. Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your summer!

  3. Simple but scrumptious! I like all food made with ease and with few ingredients. Hurray…this is my kind of recipe!
