It's summer!! Yeah I know it doesn't look like it... but at least it's not raining! Irish people LOVE ice cream. Rain, hail or shine, most of us will be tempted to indulge..
Recently, I've noticed more and more varieties of frozen yoghurt on the market. Often it's marketed as the 'healthier, fat-free' alternative to ice cream....Alarm bells should be ringing in your head! If you take anything from GLBTK please let it be that fat does NOT make you fat (do avoid trans fats though!)!! Stop choosing the fat free, low fat or calorie free options.... Actually, on that last one.... zero calories foods do not exist, even celery has calories! I dread to think what's actually in these calorie free salad dressings or drinks, you can be sure it's not good for you..
As usual, I digress...My point (I swear I have one) is that you really need to be careful about the choices you make. Whilst commercially produced frozen yoghurt may seem like the healthy option, often it contains far more sugar than traditional ice cream...
So.... my instant Raspberry Frozen Yoghurt...It's YUMMY, low in sugar & has lots of protein & fat from the Greek yoghurt... Not a bad summer time treat!
500g Greek yoghurt
250g frozen raspberries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp Irish honey
Simply place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. (I like leaving chunks of raspberries for texture).
Scoop into bowls immediately & serve with fresh raspberries and warm grilled peaches. (You could use frozen peaches to make a peach frozen yoghurt too... it's delicious!)
You can freeze it, but be aware it will get really solid so take out of the freezer in advance so you can scoop it easily.
