for nearly about these past 3 years, teenagers in my country have some kind like frozen-yoghurt fever. since the first fro-yo parlor has been opened, there's always been a long line to buy the fro-yo. and now, we have more than lots of fro-yo parlor almost in every shopping centers, each one has at least 1 and it's not impossible to have more than 3. me, my self, must admit that i am also a fan of frozen yoghurt with variants of toppings, fruit toppings are my favorite. from the day i learned how to cook, i have always been very curious on how to make foods that i like, including this frozen yoghurt.
it was my dream to have an ice-cream maker, because i scream for ice-cream pretty often. my dream has just came true 2 weeks ago, i finally bought an ice-cream maker with my own savings. tee-hee! i've tried two recipes already, but just satisfied with one of them, this one. blueberry frozen yoghurt. i've made mint chocolate-chip ice-cream but turns out i don't really like the eggy taste there. forgive me as an asian who was destined to like light dishes, the super eggy style ice-cream is just not my type. i can tolerate egg yolk contained in an ice-cream but please no yolks. this fro-yo recipe has no egg in it and i love it. maybe i should try to modified some ice-cream recipe to match my taste from now on.
for approximately 500 ml
50 gr fresh blueberries
juice of one lemon
75 gr caster sugar
200 ml heavy cream
200 ml plain yoghurt
- puree the blueberries with lemon juice and 3 tbsp caster sugar.
- mix the heavy cream, plain yoghurt, and the remaining caster sugar until evenly incorporated.
- to make swirl: churn the cream mixture first in the ice-cream maker following the manufacturer's instruction. when it has become thicker in consistency, pour in the blueberry puree.
what happened in my kitchen?
- i failed to make my swirls. i poured the blueberry juice before the yoghurt has thickened and they're blended into soft purple color. so if you want to make the swirls, please be patient and wait until the yoghurt mixture has thickened.
that's all for today. making ice cream is easy! :)
thanks for reading, HAPPY EXPERIMENTING!
