Yoghurt Ice Cream


The cold, wet and dark weather is finally here, and my summer holiday seems a long time ago. Our August holiday was in Brittany, France.  We would often sit on the pier, watch the boats go by, and eat ice-cream from the local shop. It was bliss, and exactly what holidays are made of.

After trying many of the ice-creams (and there were many that were very good), I think my favourite was the Yoghurt Ice Cream.  As autumn starts to kick in I have tried to re-create that holiday feeling by making my version of Yoghurt Ice Cream.

Yoghurt Ice-Cream goes great with many deserts.  In fact, I sometimes find it is better than vanilla ice-cream which can be too creamy or too sweet to go with certain deserts.  When that is the case, reach for this recipe!  It will help to balance a dish due to its cooling sweet sourness, mmhhh delicious.  Give it a try!

Yoghurt Ice Cream

  • 200g cream
  • 200g whole milk
  • 110g sugar
  • 1tbsp glucose syrup
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 200g whole-milk Greek-style yogurt

Bring to simmer the cream, milk, 70g of the sugar and the glucose in a saucepan.

Whisk the eggs and 40g of the sugar until white. Continue to mix while gradually adding the hot cream mixture to the whisked eggs.

Return the mixture to a saucepan and continue stirring over medium-low heat until a thermometer reaches 83°C.

Pass the mixture through a sieve.  Place the bowl with the custard mixture in a larger bowl filled halfway with ice and water. Leave to cool.  Whisk occasionally until custard is almost cool to touch, about 5 minutes. Remove bowl with custard from ice water.

Stir in the yoghurt.  Pour into the an ice-cream maker, and process according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Serve, and enjoy!
