I’m a procrastinator. Stud will attest to this. It’s not even my (or his) opinion. It’s a full blown, honest fact! I put off cleaning, important duties (you know, bills, etc), making things (well in honesty, I don’t put them off, it’s more bursts really. So I do, do it, but only when I am in the mood and then can go months before finishing it hence we have lots of little unfinished crafty bollocks all over the house), you know, anything that isn’t as fun as cooking and I can think of a good reason.
It’s pretty much the same with this post.
At the end of summer, (in an attempt to slim down to fit in to a wedding dress) I wanted to make an alternative to ice cream that would keep us full and satisfied but also tasted great. So I went searching for a great frozen yoghurt recipe and came across 101 Cookbooks. I tweaked it slightly (off course) and we were soon enjoying beautifully frozen yoghurt packed with flavour.
Adapted from 101 Cookbooks
3 cups (720g) strained yogurt (see below) or Greek-style yogurt
3/4 cup (150g) sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
To make 1 cup (240g) of strained yogurt, line a mesh strainer with a few layers of cheese cloth. Then scrape 16 ounces or 2 cups (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 6 cups of yogurt.
