Frozen strawberry yogurt

This frozen yogurt is from Jamie Oliver's cookbook Happy Days with the Naked Chef. I love his cookbooks ... he seems to be focussing on both kids and nutrition more lately which is great. Very simple recipe: 300 g frozen fruit + 500 g yogurt + honey to taste... whiz in food processor. The benefit of having the fruit frozen is that it has a slushy half-frozen texture right away. Hence an acceptable ice-cream substitute after walking the kids home from school past the grocery store which sells ice-cream. Here I have made it with frozen strawberries and a rich Jalna premium-dreamy-creamy vanilla custard yogurt and homemade strawberry jam for extra oomph. After a bowlful each, we popped the rest into the freezer for later treats.
I have some frozen raspberries in the freezer right now which are calling out to be made into frozen yogurt. I also would love to try this with frozen peaches or mango.

I REALLY want to buy his cookbooks mostly because he is so darn HOT:-P

I used to watch his cooking shows in Hong Kong and drool; was it the food or him?

I used to think he was hot too... but now I find him a little annoying and instead prefer his wife! ;-) She's gorgeous. But I love his food. It's simple and pretty healthy, especially some of the latest cookbooks because he's really gotten into nutrition after trying to overhaul the school lunch program in the UK... have you seen that series?

Faux Couture said...

Yes, I watched some of the series with Matthew in Hong Kong last year. We also saw his show "16" once.

Matt is now asking me to get off the puter...
