Melbourne has started to warm up (bring on summer!) and on hot days my brain thinks in ice cream.
Making homemade ice cream is a great summer activity with an even better outcome – 1.5L of fresh ice-cream and YOU choose the flavours. This was happening.
Making a delicious summer treat using my new favourite appliance was so easy that I have decided to share a simple and delicious frozen yoghurt recipe you can make at home.
I decided on sour cherry and coconut frozen yoghurt because well… that just sounds like a dream. I am a coconut lover and a cherry lover and it’s time these two got better acquainted (in my kitchen anyway)
It took about 30-35 minutes in the ice cream maker and an extra five in the freezer to turn what was just Greek yoghurt, coconut cream, a spoonful of sugar and cherries into an amazing frozen treat.
The ingredients for this recipe cost me about $6 and I got 1.4 Litres of this magical stuff which is now in my freezer just waiting for those 30 degree days.
A light and fluffy frozen yoghurt flavoured with sour cherries and coconut milk. Perfect for a summers day!
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 45 min
Total Time: 55 min
250ml Greek yoghurt
200 ml coconut cream (refrigerate can till cream separated from water – only use cream part)
1/4 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup Amarena cherries chopped in half
As per my ice cream maker’s instructions, I placed the inner of ice cream maker in the freezer overnight.
The next day, mix the yoghurt, coconut milk, sugar, coconut and cherries in a jug with a spout (makes it easy to pour)
Remove the inner from the freezer, assemble and turn the ice cream maker on
When paddle is moving, pour the mixture into the ice cream maker slowly
Leave for 30-40 minutes or until yoghurt has frozen and become the desired consistency
I placed the entire inner in the freezer for a further 10 minutes
Drizzle some extra syrup from the cherries on top and enjoy!
