Delicious frozen yoghurt thats really fruity and deliciously creamy – and super good for you too!
Healthy ice creams are SO on trend for 2015 huh? Have you tried banana based ice cream yet? This recipe will be incredibly useful if we ever get that heatwave I keep hearing about…. or if you live in a place more reliably warm than the UK in ‘Summer’!
Did you know you can make your own Easy and Instant Homemade Frozen Yoghurt? It’s SO ridiculously easy, and you don’t necessarily need a food processor or blender either!
This recipe is so simple, and easy to adapt to add in whatever’s your favourite or in season. I used a frozen berry mix including blueberries, strawberries and raspberries, and you can also use fresh berries or other fruits, plus other mix-ins like nuts or dark chocolate chips (you know nothing in my world is usually totally healthy!).
I sweetened my frozen yoghurt with a little honey – you can also use a touch of agarve or maple syrup – whatever you prefer.
- 500g Greek or Turkish thick yoghurt, plain
- 300g frozen mixed berries
- 1 tbsp honey, agarve, or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- Scoop the yoghurt out of it's container and into your food processor or blender. Blend with the frozen or fresh fruit, honey and vanilla, until you're happy with the taste. Blend for less time for chunky yoghurt, or continue blending for a yoghurt without large fruit pieces.
- If not using a food processor or blender, scoop the yoghurt into a large bowl, and mash in your fruit and add-ins until everything is incorporated.
- Scoop all of the yoghurt into a large tupperware container (I used the large container my turkish yoghurt came in) and allow to harden in the freezen for approximately 1 hour before serving.
Use the greek yoghurt of your choice – I actually used this ‘Turkish Yoghurt‘ from Lidl which is ridiculously cheap and very tasty. It’s about 10% fat, but I think a bit of fat in your diet is good for you. If you’d like your frozen yoghurt to be fat-free, use a fat free yoghurt!
