Rose Petal, Strawberry and Raspberry frozen yoghurt.Posted on 30th June 2022
H O W T O M A K E ?
A simple summer treat to cool you down in the heat!
Using Rose petals, a few Strawberries and a handful of Raspberries from our garden, lets see how our experimental frozen yoghurt turned out! (In the months of June – September you might be able to forage for Wild Strawberries and Raspberries in your area. Make sure to keep a look out on your walks and don’t forget to tag us in your finds).
Rose Petal, Raspberry and Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt:
Prep time: 20 mins
Freeze time: 3 hours (till firm)
75g Rose petals
200ml Natural Yoghurt
1tsp Honey (or sugar) to taste
Start by washing all of your fruit and carefully cleaning your rose petals. We advise collecting your petals early morning while they’re considered to be at their most fragrant.
Place all fruit and Rose petals in a food processor and whizz until smooth.
Fold in your yoghurt until completely mixed, make sure to taste and add honey/sugar as desired. We added 1tsp of honey to take away some of the sharpness from the raspberries.
Pop the whole mixture into an ice-cream machine for 10-15 minutes (we only made a small batch so it didn’t take long to freeze).
Place into a suitable tub and pop in the freezer to firm.
* We used an ice cream machine for our experiment but you can create a similar consistency at home by freezing your fruits and petals first and blending everything together in a food processer at once. You should be left with a thick consistency that you can either serve immediately or, for best results, place mixture into a suitable tub and freeze for 3-4 hours until firm.*
If left overnight, remove from freezer 10 minutes before you plan to serve. Serve into scoops and garnish with more fruits or toppings of your choice.
Happy foraging everyone!
