Cherry Frozen Yogurt

Fresh cherries are in this season and I am delighted to make cherry flavored frozen yogurt and cherry flavored ice creams. What a delish!!!! This frozen yogurt is smooth creamy and has beautiful flavors from cinnamon and star anise. It is so smooth and creamy that you will crave for more. Although this recipe will make enough frozen yogurt for 4-5 people, its so tasty that you will give up your sharing and caring nature and can gobble the entire dessert yourself. Its okay...you will be in my group. Don't feel shy.

How to make cherry flavored frozen yogurt

I have bought again 1 kg Bagda Chingri. Ahhh....the scene itself was so satisfying. This time I will make paturi...yes...chingri macher paturi. However our Bassam trip got cancelled. So sad!!:( Also I have a dirty fridge now which I have to clean in the weekend. I cleaned up my wardrobe and got some of my kurtis and stoles in a corner. Happy dance!!! But first lets make Cherry Frozen Yogurt.

Cherry flavored frozen yogurt recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups of thick Greek yogurt (in case on unavailability strain the excess water off the normal yogurt by hanging it with a cheese cloth or muslin cloth, for at 1 day.)
  • 1 cup de-seeded fresh cherries
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Method:
  • In a saucepan put in the de-seeded cherries with some sugar, salt, butter, cinnamon and star anise.
  • Simmer it for 3-5 minutes, until all the sugar and butter melts. With the help of a spatula partially smash the cherries. Once everything incorporates perfectly and you can see a thick syrup is formed, put off the flame and let the syrup come to the room temperature.
  • Once the cherries cool down, take out the whole spices and mix it with the Greek / strained yogurt. Also mix in the condensed milk.
  • Put it in the ice cream machine and make frozen yogurt according to the user's manual.
  • If you are not using ice cream machine then freeze the yogurt in the freezer until it is partially set. Then blend them until smooth. Do this procedure for 2-3 times. Every time you freeze the yogurt, put a plastic wrap over it, touching the surface to prevent the formation of ice crystals.
