This recipe is another brilliant result of my husband’s culinary creativity. You see, we don’t have an ice cream maker, but he was determined to find a way to make me one of my favorite frozen treats. And wow did he succeed! The tanginess of the strawberries perfectly complements the natural flavor of the Greek yogurt to create an artisanal dessert that’s simple, smooth and refreshing, and at the same time, sensational. As always, he’s used only the freshest ingredients, and here the result is an easy-to-make frozen delight. Thanks to my perfectionist for this one!
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
Yield: About 4 1/2 lbs
1.5 lbs of fresh strawberries, washed
1 cup of sugar
9 oz of plain Greek yogurt
13 oz of whipping cream
1 3/4 oz of invert sugar or corn syrup (by weight, not volume)
In a blender or food processor, blend the strawberries, yogurt and sugar until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, whip the cream until it forms medium peaks; don’t whip too much. Add the invert sugar and mix just enough to combine.
Gently fold the cream mixture into the strawberry mixture. Refrigerate for two hours.
After the time has passed, remove the bowl from the fridge and fold the mixture again. Place in the freezer for two hours, folding the mixture every 30 minutes. It’s important to fold the frozen yogurt consistently, as this prevents it from having an icy texture.
Serve plain, with fruit, or even with a little whipped cream.
A note: Of course, if you have an ice cream maker, that would be the easier way to make this dessert. But we wanted to find a way to do it by hand, hence this great recipe!
