Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Hopefully you’ve all had a chance to see my delicious strawberry ice-cream recipe! It should be a summer staple for anyone who loves to cook from scratch.

I’m lucky enough to not only have parents who grow a whole variety of fruit in their garden (from eating and cooking apples to strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries) but to also have a fruit farm that allows you to “pick your own” just 15mins away! One of my favourite things about summer is going to the fruit farm to find big juicy strawberries and much, much more!
When I came home from university (FOR GOOD!) last weekend I was greeted by two huge punnets of strawberries that my parents had picked from said fruit farm. Now call me crazy, but I truly believe that these strawberries taste like they come from that particular fruit farm!

Can a human REALLY tell where a strawberry is from by taste alone? Well...I think I can!

There was no room for them in the fridge so I had to come up with a few new ideas and turn them into something delicious before they were past their best – strawberry ice-cream was first on the list and we now have a tub chilling in the freezer as we speak!

Now I could have simply doubled the batch, but...the recipe isn’t exactly good for anyone who is conscious of their weight and what they eat so I attempted a “lighter” but just as delicious strawberry frozen yogurt, and I was VERY impressed!
Whilst my home-made strawberry ice-cream is rich and velvety, the frozen yogurt is light and fresh (and best of all virtually fat free!!!!!) I definitely recommend giving this healthier option a go because let’s be can’t eat ice-cream every day and expect a beach ready bikini body!

Tips: don't have any tupaware to put your freshly made frozen yogurt in? Why not use the pot that the greek yogurt came in? You will have a little extra left over but why not bowl that up ready to eat!

Strawberries 67p, condensed milk (carnation) 50p, yogurt £1

  1. “A fruit farm that allows you to “pick your own” just 15mins away!”— Oh my! How I wish I also have the same privilege as you! What could be the other fruits your farm has? Anyway, frozen yogurts are healthy by enhancing our digestive system with probiotics, helping to prevent diarrhea and constipation.
