Ever tried to combine tangy yoghurt with chocolate and then freeze it? While this sensation might not be for everyone, I am quite fond of it myself. Read on! More intriguing than ordinary chocolate ice cream As you may know, frozen yoghurts may not always contain very much actual yoghurt. But today’s recipe certainly does! All this yoghurt gives a special touch to the […]

21/03/2014 at 13:29

The blueberry is probably my favourite berry: extra nice these days, when the blue berries are hailed not only as delicious, but also super-healthy. Since I also love frozen yoghurt, you can imagine my happiness when I found an easy way to make great blueberry frozen yoghurt in less than 30 minutes. The secret? Mainly a jar of good quality blueberry jam. Read on! Frozen […]

How to improve frozen yoghurts

13/03/2014 at 15:32

From modest market beginnings in the 1970’s, the frozen yoghurt has stepped forward as the fresh and healthy ‘cousin’ to traditional ice cream. And while frozen yoghurt unfortunately tends to be less healthy than often assumed, I love it and the tangy freshness it often provides!  Still, there is often a big, off-putting divide between the consistency of commercially […]

  A glass of Sparkling Sorbet – is there a classier way for an ice cream fan to celebrate?

Santa Lucia Saffron Raisin ice cream

Do you know Saint Lucia? Every 13 December, candle-carrying, singing processions of youth, clad in white and Christmas glitter and headed by a young woman (the Lucia) wearing a red girdle and a crown of lights, light up the winter darkness all around Sweden (and elsewhere too, by the way).     Delivering Christmas carols (including the obligatory Santa Lucia-signature […]

Cider & Apple sorbet

04/10/2011 at 23:31

Cider from Normandy and delicious green apples baked together form the basis of this rustic sorbet. My first taste brought about vivid and positive childhood memories of mother’s home-made, deliciously cooked apple-sauce. The cider brings an additional dimension to the final flavour experience.   This baked apple sorbet is basically an adaptation from a recipe by Jeni […]
