Now that the summer is here, I have a lot of ice cream cravings. So i searched for a healthier way to satisfy them. I found a recipe for yogurt ice cream, but I changed it a little bit. To avoid using sugar I used honey instead and I added strawberries too. Since I don’t have an ice cream machine it took me a day of checking every 30mins the freezer and stirring every now and then, but it was totally worth it.
If you have an ice cream machine (grrr…envy) you should definitely try this recipe. And in case you don’t have one, still…you should try it too!!
I would really love to see how yours turned out, so if you try it, drop me a message or a comment and let me know! You can also experiment a little bit and add more fruits or nuts..
300gr crashed nuts
1/2 lemon’s juice
Put the sugar, the butter and the lemon juice in a saucepan in high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon, until it becomes liquid and brown. Add the nuts, stir and remove from heat. Spread on a baking sheet and let cool. When completely dry cut it into small pieces.
yogurt ice cream
350gr cream 35% fat
3 tbsp honey
a handful of strawberries
Boil the water in a small saucepan. Then add the honey and vanilla, stir and remove from heat. In a different saucepan, heat the cream and then let it cool. In a big bowl add the yogurt with the cold cream and stir well. Then add slowly the honey syrup.
When fully incorporated put it in the freezer. 30′-45′ mins later take it out and whisk. Then put it in the freezer again. Do that for three more times. Cut the half of the strawberries in very small dices and liquidize the rest of them in the food processor.
Add them and the caramelized nuts in the ice cream and put it in the freezer for one last time.
-In case you have an ice cream machine, add the strawberries and nuts after the syrup and put the mixture in the machine.. That simple 😉
So, that’s all! I know it sounds really boring but as I told you before, it is totally worth it!
