Any Berry & Cashew Nut Frozen Yoghurt

17 05 2010

I have no idea why ice cream is a universal language all of its own, and why it always seems to translate into ‘yes please’ and ‘oh, ok, if I must’, but that’s just the way it is.

And equally so with this quirky (low calorie but still delicious) take on the old favourite…

Serves 4-6 | Preparation time 10 minutes | Freezer time approx 3 hours

500ml fat free / low fat yoghurt
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup any berries (I used cranberries but you could also use mixed frozen berries)
Half cup un-salted cashew nuts

1. In a medium-sized pot on medium heat, add the berries, vanilla, sugar and about 2 Tbsp boiling water and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes just until the sugar dissolves*
2. Leave to cool and then mix with the yoghurt in a freezer-proof container with a lid
3. Freeze for about of 3 hours before serving, preferably taking out to whisk away the ice crystals after 1.5 hours and then returning to the freezer
4. You can make this well in advance, just remember to take it out the freezer about 20 minutes before eating then so that it can soften a bit

*You can also reserve some of the berry, vanilla and sugar mixture and blend to make a coulis to use for serving
