I couldn’t resist to try another ice cream: mashed strawberry & raspberry in a yoghurt mix… It’s perfect: easy to make, full of fruity summer flavors, creamy… & you don’t need an ice cream maker!
My last post was on home-made ice cream & now there’s another one… (Don’t be afraid: I don’t intend to reinvent this blog as a „How to make ice cream?“ blog.)
I made some ice cream w/ strawberries & chocolate – a real rich (!) ice cream – when it got hot hereabout; just before we went on holiday in Rome. In Rome everywhere there is a gelateria; always you stumble on people w/ ice cream cones, melting ice cream dripping on the cobbles or worse on your shirt…
Italian ice cream is a dream… So back home I struggled to approach the Italian ice creamy dolce vita w/ the last strawberries & some raspberries in a light yoghurt mix.
What do we need?
- condensed milk (i. e. sweetened concentrated milk)
- Greek yoghurt
- puréed strawberries & raspberries
- some orange liqueur.
For the purée:
- clean & trim & hull the strawberries
- purée the strawberries (w/ some orange liqueur) in a stand mixer
- clean the rasberries
- purée the raspberries (w/ some orange liqueur) in a stand mixer (add some strawberry purée if too dry!)
- strain the raspberry purée & discard the pits
- mix all the purée in a bowl.
Then you add the Greek yoghurt as well as the condensed milk & whisk.
Pour the mess in a container & place it trustingly in your freezer.
Every 2 h you should do a quality test & mix the mess thoroughly – either in the container (if big enough!) or by filling the mess in a bowl & afterwards refilling the container.
After about 6 h the ice cram is fine for serving!
When the ice cream sits in the freezer for more than 24 h it gets solidly frozen (the freezer works at about -18° C!). So think about giving the ice cream some time (about 10-15 min) outside the freezer to get ready for serving!

I think I like this ice cream even more than the last one: it’s absolutely creamy & made w/ yoghurt.
I’m sure that I can use other fruity flavours than strawberries & raspberries… maybe I should try some mix of apricots & red currants, some blueberries & pears or so… The process won’t change! (Only the type of liqueur may change according to the fruits I use!)
