Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

It has been almost a year since I picked up an ice cream maker and I have been enjoying home made frozen treats since. So far I've made a few ice creams and a sorbet and I now wanted to try something different. I realized that I have not tried making one of my favorite frozen dishes, a frozen yogurt. I had to fix that immediately. Strawberries were the obvious choice since they are in season and looking so good. One of the things that I like most about making my own ice cream is the simplicity of the recipes. There are only a few ingredients and you can pronounce all of them. This recipe is a perfect example with only four simple ingredients. One thing that you may want to watch out for in this recipe is the sweetness. Plain yogurt can be a bit tart so you will want to test the mixture for sweetness before freezing it. The strawberry frozen yogurt was good! I really enjoyed the texture of the frozen yogurt and the strawberry flavour. Next time I think I will leave some bigger chunks of strawberries in.

Ingredients:
3 cups strawberries (sliced)
1 lemon (juice)
1 cup sugar
2 cups yogurt

Directions:
1. Heat the strawberries, lemon juice and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
2. Remove from the heat and mash the strawberries.
3. Let cool then mix in the yogurt and test for sweetness.
4. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
5. Freeze according to the instructions for your ice cream machine.

Your frozen yogurt looks good! Once I tried making it by freezing regular yogurt, but that obviously didn't work too well.. haha

Ah, now that is a thing of beauty! I absolutely love fresh strawberry ice cream, frozen yogurt and just about anything with strawberries. You have great ideas, Kevin!

Man, turn your back for a day or two and you've done three new posts :) That frozen yoghurt looks amazingly good, I wish strawberries were in season down here...or that I had a bowlful of this! :)

Mrs Erg├╝l said...

lol, being able to pronounce all ingredients is a bonus cuz I know they are not weird chemicals of sort! i love frozen yogurt and used to buy them in tubs!

Sharon said...

I just bought some strawberries! Sadly, I dont have an ice cream maker. I love the colors in yours.

Have you ever tried using a flavored yogurt?

LyB said...

Amen to being able to pronounce all the ingredients in a recipe. Some commercial ice creams have so many ingredients, it's scary! Your frozen yogurt looks delicious Kevin!

Manggy said...

You're absolutely right about the sweetness, Kevin-- I tried making frozen yogurt once and it was still too tart for me! Maybe I was expecting it to be like the frozen yogurts off the supermarket :)

Ferdzy said...

Beautiful photo! And I bet it tastes just as beautiful.

Bruno said...

That's so beautiful! I made cherry ice cream with my brand-spanking-new ice cream machine last week, but I haven't gotten a good photo yet so I haven't written it up. I will definitely try this next. I wonder if a strawberry/blueberry mixture would work...

Amanda said...

Ohhh! Do you love your ice cream maker so much you want to marry it? I have wanted one for ages but have never got around to taking the plunge and buying one. Partly because my freezer doesn't always get super-chilly, and partly because I think I would become ice cream obsessed...

Marjie said...

I don't think my berries will last long enough for me to order an ice cream maker....boo hoo...this is a nice looking dessert!

Vicarious Foodie said...

Oh my gosh that looks so good. I wish I had room for an ice cream maker!

Jen Yu said...

Just look at that perfect bowl of berries and fro yo. I too tend to forget about my ice cream maker - although with all of the food bloggers going gangbusters with their ice creams and frozen treats, it's hard to avoid inspiration! Thanks for inspiring me :)

Pam said...

I love strawberry frozen yogurt! What a great idea to serve it with some of the berries!

Jaime said...

Just tried this recipe today, came out great. Thanks!

dhan said...

whether the difference between kefir and yogurt?
Which is better between them?
whether kefir has the same flavor of yogurt?
It looks very tasty

Kevin said...

dhan: I have never had kefir. The description sounds like it might be similar, in that it is a fermented dairy product. I will have to look for some to try.
