Recently I bought a passive ice cream maker from Aldi for €24.99 and I have been experimenting with it ever since, this is the simplest recipe yet! It is very rich and creamy but it has less calories than ice cream, so it is a treat you can enjoy more often. I am planning to try his Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe next, which looks equally easy and will go down a storm here I'm sure. If you have no ice cream maker then this post will help. Enjoy!
How to make strained yogurt
To make 240g of strained yogurt, line a mesh strainer with a few layers of cheese cloth/ muslin. Then scrape 480g of plain whole-milk yogurt into the cheesecloth. Gather the ends and fold them over the yogurt, then refrigerate for at least 6 hours. So, for the above recipe start with and strain 1.5kg of yogurt.
Recipe compliments of The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz
720g - 750g Strained yogurt or Greek-style yogurt (I used Greek style yogurt)
150g White sugar
1tsp Vanilla extract
Mix together the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla.
Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 hour (as with any passive ice cream maker your ingredients need to be completely chilled, so I usually leave it overnight)
Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions (usually about a half an hour or until it begins to click) .
