Raspberry Prune Frozen Yoghurt, a super-healthy alternative to ice-cream!

Posted by Sunsweet - Thursday, March 09, 2017

We all crave a sweet treat, at times. And yet opting for refined sugar and fat-laden versions can leave us feeling sluggish and guilty. So say “hello” to our Raspberry Prune Frozen Yoghurt. It’s a super-healthy alternative to ice-cream. And with just three ingredients – raspberries, yogurt and prunes – this delicious treat couldn’t be more simple to make.

Ingredients

200 g natural yoghurt, mild (3.5 % fat)
100-125 g Sunsweet prunes
250 g frozen raspberries, unthawed

If desired:
4 waffles

Instructions

  1. First put yoghurt and then prunes and raspberries into the beaker of a smoothie mixer. First mix at slow speed, then finely mix at medium speed, repeatedly pushing the raspberries downwards with the pestle. If the ice cream is not firm enough, divide the mass into portions in dessert glasses and leave to refreeze for 30 to 60 minutes in the freezer. Otherwise, immediately divide the mass into portions in dessert glasses or if desired divide into portions in ice cream waffles.

Vegan variant: soya yoghurt can be used instead of yoghurt.

Tip: a powerful smoothie mixer makes the ice cream particularly creamy. A hand-held blender is only suitable to a certain extent. If there is only a hand-held blender available, first thaw raspberries, then finely mix all ingredients together. Freeze the mass in an ice cream maker (in accordance with operating instructions) or let it freeze in the freezer. For freezing, divide the mass into portions in 4 silicone muffin moulds and place in the freezer for 1-3 hours (do not let the mass get too hard). Before serving, remove pieces of ice cream from the moulds and put them on a plate.
