There’s nothing like instagram to give you food envy. As I was scrolling through my feed, I found a picture of some home made frozen yoghurt and I was inspired to give it a go. I’ve been taking part in the Symbio Summer Feel Good Challenge and had a tub of natural Symbio in the fridge so I thought I’d have a go at making my own.
The result was better than expected actually! I used fresh strawberries which gave it a beautiful flavour, and I sweetened with some honey which complemented the strawberry flavour nicely.
If you’re making this, make sure you have an afternoon/morning at home as you’ll need to beat the mixture several times during the freezing process. Sounds like hard work but it’s not! You just need to be around to give it a quick mix. This is because when you freeze anything from liquid to solid, ice crystals form. By beating the mixture when it’s partially frozen, you break up these ice crystals resulting in a softer, creamier mixture.
Here’s how to make Creamy Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt:
500g tub of natural unsweetened Symbio yoghurt
1/2 cup cream
1 cup strawberries, chopped into pieces
3 tablespoons honey
In a cake mixer, add all the ingredients and beat till the mixture thickens and the berries are broken down and mixed through. This process takes about 10 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a loaf tin and place in the freezer.
Set the timer for 1 hour. After one hour, take out of the freezer. Using a stick blender, blend the mixture up again. You can keep it in the loaf tin to do this. If you don’t have a stick blender, you can just use a spoon to beat the mixture well. Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes. Repeat this process 3 times. This helps make it creamy.
Serve with fresh berries.
Best served within 3 days.
