Anneka Manning’s frozen yoghurt from the Low GI Family Cookbook is easy to prepare and perfect for summery desserts. You can refreeze it in single serve containers in Step 3 rather than 1 large container if you prefer and have it on hand as an after-school snack.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Freezing time: 7 hours
250 g (9 oz) fresh or frozen mixed berries
3 x 200 g (7 oz) tubs low fat vanilla yoghurt
2 egg whites
2 tablespoons pure floral honey
- Place the berries and yoghurt in a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl and set aside.
- Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until stiff peaks form. Add the honey a tablespoon at a time, whisking well after each addition until thick and glossy. Fold into the berry yoghurt mixture until just combined.
- Pour the mixture into an airtight container and place in the freezer for 4 hours or until frozen. Use a metal spoon to break the frozen yoghurt into chunks. Blend again in a food processor until smooth. Return to the airtight container and refreeze for 3 hours or until frozen. Serve in scoops.
