How to make homemade frozen yoghurt without an ice-cream maker + 8 top recipes
Frozen yoghurt is great for the summer or winter holidays, especially when combined with poached mulled wine pears, baked apple slices, or other delicious toppings. If you have a large pack of yogurt or kefir starters you can use them not only for your plain yoghurt breakfast but also to make nice deserts.
However, frequently the lack of ice cream machines prevents us from trying. The devices can reduce the time enormously, but if you are at home anyway, you definitely can do it using nothing other than your hands.
First, make 4 cups of Greek-style yoghurt for best results or watch our videos to see how to make it. Greek-style yoghurt is well-strained so no liquids can ruin your dessert. Mix the yoghurt with 1 cup of honey and 2 spoons of vanilla in a bowl. If you use a blender this could be a very quick process, but if you whisk it by hand, it might take longer, or about 10 minutes until the mixture becomes soft and fluffy.
Transfer the mixture to a glass baking dish and spread evenly, then cover the dish to prevent the yoghurt mixture from absorbing any freezer ''flavour'' and put in the freezer for 1 hour.
After an hour, take out the mix and stir well as you spread it again. Then cover and put it in the freezer again for the next 2-3 hours, taking the mixture out to stir every 30 - 45 minutes. It seems like a lot of stirring, but this maintains a scoopable consistency.
You also can add fruits after it is ready or arrange things around the cake. If you wish for a fruity flavour, you can add some cut fruit pieces in the beginning together with the yoghurt, honey, and vanilla.
As you can see it is not that hard to enjoy frozen yoghurt or kefir even if you do not have ice cream machine.
