Despite my complains about my useless, not-working ice cream maker, i stubbornly set out to try using it again.
This time, it is not ice cream that i want to churn. It’s frozen yogurt!
I think the boys and i kinda like frozen yogurt more than ice cream. Seriously! But then, the boys love anything frozen or cold so….. i might be speaking for just myself :P
Imagine my excitement when *aheeeeemmm* the yogurt looks what it should look like. Hahahahaa… so uuummmmmmmmm, it has not been the ice cream maker’s fault all this while! I was the useless, not-working one! *hide*
David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop is really quite something. I am in *love* with the book! Kinda regretted for putting it off my radar for months if not years. Oh well, better late than never! 1 more recipe to test and i’d be ready to purchase it if it passes with flying colours. :P
the kind of texture you should get after churning it in ice cream maker…
The vanilla froyo is utterly awesome!
It has that delightful tanginess which i heart. Moreover, i didn’t just use Natural Yogurt, i used Greek yogurt! For the uninitiated, Greek yogurt is much higher in fat than plain yogurt, which i don’t quite care – i like wholesome food! -
In another word, my fro-yo is creamier and richer! :D
Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
by David Lebovitz
720g plain whole-milk yogurt (seriously, don’t attempt to use low fat ones)
200g sugar (i’d cut this down to 150g)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together the yogurt, sugar and vanilla. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
HOW EASY IS THAT???
Now that i kinda know what my problem was earlier with the ice cream maker, i sure hope my next test recipe will work out fine. The key is to refrigerate the ingredients for an hour before churning it in the ice cream maker ;)
