Despite the drizzling dark grey weather, I have refused to give in. I will not start wearing tights or leggings again. It is summer and I will wear dresses with bare legs and I will eat ice cream. Or frozen yogurt (froyo for the abbreviation fiends among us). This stuff is delicious and really reminds me of my grandma's strawberry ice cream recipe (which I am determined to recreate this summer) - though hers was cream based. The strawberry flavour is really pronounced against the creamy and slightly tangy yogurt. And, of course, it's a fabulous colour.
PS. Don't do as I did and drizzle in a layer of leftover strawberry puree from another project. It crystallized into ice (duh, Emma)
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
(barely adapted from David Lebovitz's Perfect Scoop, also online here)
450g strawberries, hulled
130g caster sugar
240g full fat yogurt
2 tsp lemon juice
Chop the strawberries into slices and put in a bowl. Mix in the sugar and leave to macerate for an hour. Put into a blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Add the yogurt and lemon juice and blend until well combined. Sieve through a fine mesh to remove the seeds (optional). Pour into a jug and refrigerate for an hour. Churn in your ice cream maker as per manufacturers instructions.
(Makes about 1 ltr)
