One summer in Germany, I worked in an Italian Ice cream Café called San Marco. I wasn’t allowed to eat ice cream during my long shifts but I did have an ice cream cone every day after work. The Italian owner of the Café made all the ice cream himself. It was so delicious and there were so many flavors to chose from…
This summer I am obsessed with making my own homemade ice cream. I have been experimenting a lot with frozen yogurt. It is healthy and I don’t feel guilty one bit. My latest adventure has been chocolate frozen yogurt. It is rich, a bit tangy and divine…. oh, and easy to make… that’s a big plus in my world.
- 2 cups of low fat or fat free, plain yogurt
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- pinch of salt
Strain the yogurt for several hours. Line a colander or a sieve with a cheese cloth or something similar. Add the yogurt to the lined colander/sieve. Now put the sieve into a bowl and cover it with a plate. Place in the refrigerator for several hours. I let it sit for about 3 hours.
Place the strained yogurt in another bowl. Add the cocoa powder, the sugar, and the milk. Mix well.
Pour the yogurt into the ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Eat immediately or keep in an airtight container in the freezer.
