Berry Burst Frozen Yoghurt

This nutritious and delicious simple frozen yoghurt is perfect for Summer - it’s refreshing, packed with goodness, easy to make and completely guilt-free!
The yoghurt element provides a protein rich probiotic benefit and the nuts, berries and honey provide great sources of fibre, vitamin B-group, C, K, folate, manganese and flavonoids. All of these are known to protect against heart disease, infection, as well as lowering cholesterol, supporting healthy skin and providing anti-inflammatory benefits.
And we did mention that it was delicious, right?! A healthier alternative to that weekly tub of ice-cream.. (or was that just me?!)
This serves about 4 people, takes around 20 minutes to make plus 3-5 hours of freezing time.

You need:

  • 450g berries (of your choice - we chose a mixture of strawberry, blueberry & blackberry)
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 550g Greek yoghurt
  • 4 tablespoons honey (to taste)
  • *optional : 50g nuts of your choice, finely chopped (we chose cashews)

Instructions:

  1. Put the berries in a small pot and sprinkle the cornflour and sugar over to coat and toss.
  2. Using a masher or fork, break the berries up and allow to simmer over a medium heat whilst stirring frequently until they have broken down.
  3. Transfer contents to the food processor to break down even further, making the texture as smooth as you like - generally smaller pieces work better.
  4. Add the nuts to the food processor too, and blend with the berries,
  5. Stir in the yoghurt and honey and either pour into an ice-cream maker, or else place in a freezer-proof container and freeze for a few hours, stirring every hour or so to prevent crystals forming.
  6. If any crystals form, simply blitz in the food processor.
  7. You can always add chunkier bits of berry texture at the end phase, with a quick 5 second blitz in the food processor along with a handful of berries.
