Frozen Berries Yogurt Ice Cream

I still remember a couple of months back... My 2 year old son was going through the phase of not eating any fruits and vegetables. I'm so relieved that he is good eating his vegetable and fruits now. I guess that kids and their taste buds change as their growth progress in different stages. In regardless, ice cream and sweets are always my son's number one favourites, rather than any fruits and vegetables. And, this is a great way to get my son to like his fruits as much as his ice cream...

I've tried making this ice cream before by following the steps of this recipe but the ice cream turned out to be too icy. I would strongly recommend using an ice cream maker or food processor to make this yogurt ice cream for a better texture.

Another tip is... Instead of removing ice cream 10-15 min prior serving, I would suggest to microwave this ice cream for 10-20 sec before scooping it from its container and the texture would be just right for serving. 

 


Here's the recipe from Australian GoodFood magazine, October 2011 issue
(with my modifications in blue)

Serve 10

500g strawberries (Replaced with 600g frozen mixed berries)
395g can sweetened condensed skim milk (Replace with the regular one for a creamier texture)
1 kg reduced-fat Greek style yogurt (the one that I'm using has 2% fat)

Roughly chop half of berries and put aside (I didn't do that). Puree remaining berries in a food processor or with a stick blender (Instead of half, I choose to puree all).

Combine condensed milk and pureed berries in a large bowl. Gently stir in yogurt until well combined. Fold through chopped berries (I didn't do that).

Transfer mixture to a 15 cm x 25 cm loaf pan, Cover with plastic wrap. (Instead of using the loaf pan,  prefer to use an ice cream maker at this stage) Freeze overnight, until solid. Remove from freezer 10-15 min before serving. Can be frozen up to one month.

Note: Using half of this recipe, I've made 1L of ice cream mixture and made the ice cream using an ice cream maker. Ice cream was frozen overnight before serve.

Enjoy the treat.

  20. one of the things that I've been wanting to do is to make ice cream. But buying an ice cream maker has been on my list and haven't succeeded in doing so... talk about procrastination, summer has ended, and voila no ice cream maker yet haha. but then not buying an ice cream maker is no longer an excuse for not making ice cream. I have this recipe as a template to make my own.. or perhaps try the recipe all on its own. I love how your yogurt ice cream looks, only if i could have a spoonful of it right now!
    LOL!
