Cranberry sauce seems to be an indispensible part of the North American Thanksgiving tradition. But what else can you make with cranberries? Apparently a lot… they can be mixed into pies and cakes; you can make jam, juice, and a lot more. I love Frozen Yogurt, and it has been a while since I experimented with a new flavour. So why not give Cranberry Frozen Yogurt a try? This recipe mixes strained yogurt with cranberry sauce and some honey if necessary. Then you’ll freeze the mix in an ice cream maker. It tastes sweet, berrylike and not tart at all which was rather surprising. If you like frozen yogurt and you like cranberries then you should try this…
For this Frozen Yogurt recipe you can either use leftover Cranberry Sauce or you’ll make a new batch. It is very easy to make cranberry sauce (recipe here). You simply cook fresh cranberries in some sugar water until all the berries pop. Then let the sauce cool.
- 4 cups plain, non-fat yogurt
- 1 1/4 cup homemade cranberry sauce (very easy to make, recipe here)
- honey, to taste
First, strain the yogurt. Line a colander or sieve with a cheese cloth or something similar. Place the colander/sieve in a large bowl. Then add the yogurt. Cover with a plate and leave it in the refrigerator for several hours. I left it for about 4 hours. At this point, quite a bit of whey had been eliminated, and this will have make the frozen yogurt smoother and creamier.
In a bowl, mix the strained yogurt with the cranberry sauce. Taste and sweeten to with honey if desired.
Pour the yogurt into the ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instruction.
Eat immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer.
