Summer’s bounty of fruits is still going strong. And as frozen desserts and summer go hand in hand, here’s an easy and guilt free dessert for those hot summer afternoons . If you have a glut of strawberries, and bananas ripening too quickly in the summer heat, this four ingredient strawberry and banana frozen yoghurt is the perfect dessert to use them up.


No ice cream maker needed-

This is a very easy, yet creamy and delicious recipe. And the best part is that it is good for you too! And you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it. A food processor will do just fine.

Frozen strawberries and banana-

Just rinse, hull the strawberries and place on paper towels to dry. Then arrange them on a lined baking tray in a single layer and place in the freezer. For the bananas, peel and slice and then arrange in a single layer on the baking tray.

The fruit can be close to each other but must not touch. This will ensure that the fruit freezes individually and not stick to one another; which makes it easier to take out a few at a time. Once frozen, bag the fruit in zip lock bags and store in the freezer until needed.


Yoghurt-

I have used Greek yoghurt in the recipe. If you do not have this, you can use regular yoghurt, just strain it of excess liquid.

Container-

I used an air tight plastic container to store the frozen yoghurt.

Ingredients
  

  • 600 gms fresh, ripe strawberries, frozen (method given below)
  • 650 gms ripe banana, frozen (method given below)
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • ½ cup Greek yoghurt

Instructions
 

To freeze the strawberries and banana

  • Rinse, hull the strawberries and place on paper towels to dry. Then arrange them on a lined baking tray in a single layer and place in the freezer. For the bananas, peel and slice and then arrange in a single layer on the baking tray.
    The fruit can be close to each other but must not touch. This will ensure that the fruit freezes individually and not stick to one another; which makes it easier to take out a few at a time. Once frozen, bag the fruit in zip lock bags and store in the freezer until needed.

To make the strawberry and banana frozen yoghurt

  • Place the frozen strawberries, frozen banana, yoghurt and honey in a food processor.
  • Blend till smooth and lump free. It will be thick and creamy.
  • Transfer to a freezer proof, air tight container.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper directly over the frozen yogurt. It should touch and cover the frozen yoghurt completely. This prevents icicles forming.
  • Cover the container with a lid and freeze for at least 4 hours before scooping. (see notes below)

Notes

  • We had our frozen yoghurt after about 4  hours of freezing time. It was the perfectly soft and creamy consistency and was easily scoopable. Longer freezing hours will harden the frozen yoghurt further. In that case, the frozen yoghurt container will need to be kept at room temperature for a few minutes before scooping.
