Yummy yoghurt ice creams

4 01 2015

Making these is SUPER simple and requires about 2 minutes preparation, then waiting a few hours (or overnight) for them to harden. I’ve made heaps this summer, and they are a great healthy snack. The only equipment you’ll need that you may not already have is a set of ice cream/popsicle moulds — many kitchen stores sell them for about $10.

Ingredients:

  • 500 g of yoghurt (my preference is Greek yoghurt, or Greek Vanilla yoghurt for a creamier and less sharp taste)
  • whatever else you want! I decided to go healthy with fried fruits and nuts. I chopped up some nuts (cashews, almonds, macadamias), some dried fruit (apricots, a date) and added some more dried fruit that was already in small pieces (cranberries, sultanas). For the batch I’ve photographed below, I also added a few dark choc bits (used for chocolate chip cookies) and some passionfruit pulp. You could use fresh fruits like blueberries, strawberries, stone fruit, mango, banana, or whatever you like.

Method:

In a bowl mix all the ingredients using a spoon (this takes only seconds).

Spoon into the ice cream moulds leaving a small air gap. If the mould allows it, tap the base on the counter a few times to release any air bubbles and settle the ingredients into a solid mass. Add the sticks. Place into the freezer for several hours or overnight.

To eat, run the mould under some hot water for a few seconds then wiggling the stick slowly, carefully loosen and release the ice cream from the mould. If it’s stuck, run it under a bit more hot water.

Enjoy!
