Ingredients

It wont be long before we have forgotten about how cold this winter is and are wishing we were cooler. And when that day comes, this is the perfect alternative to ice cream. I don't have an ice cream maker so I decided to make a semifreddo, a semi frozen dessert which doesn't need to be churned and is a lighter alternative to ice cream. This semifreddo is also lower in saturated fat than most ice creams and semifreddos because it uses yoghurt as the base rather than cream. However, the lower fat content means that it might need a couple of stirs as it freezes to prevent too many large ice crystals forming. This is so easy to make and can be made in advance if needed. 

  • 1 punnet of strawberries
  • 500 g of full fat yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup of honey (I used fennel honey)
  • 3 eggs
Instructions

1. Whisk the eggs and honey with an electric beater for ten minutes. The mixture should have tripled in size and be light and fluffy.

2. Blend the strawberries into a liquid then carefully stir into the egg mixture with the yoghurt until combined.

3. Line an 8 by 4 inch loaf tin with cling film and pour in the mixture. Cover the top with cling film and place in the freezer.

4. Give the mixture a stir after an hour and again after two hours then allow to freeze overnight.

5. To serve, remove from the freezer for twenty minutes to allow it to soften, then serve in slices. It will probably last for around five days in the freezer.

Its now hot and perfect!

Now that we have a week of 40 degrees plus here in Melbourne, I was looking for a cold alternative to ice cream and remembered this post from Emily. A week later and I have made two batches, it was a huge hit with the kids too.

In the second batch I replaced the strawberries with mango and it was fab too. Thanks Emily.
