The other day I was craving a dessert. I needed something that I could make right then and there out of pantry ingredients. And since it was me, it needed to not include baking. So much goes wrong when I bake. Not to mention how messy my kitchen looks with flour all over it.
Enter lemon frozen yogurt. I always have the ingredients to make this. Always. If I don’t, it means I just ran out and haven’t made it to the grocery store yet. I kind of cobbled together several recipes that I found on the internet and in books. Removing any time consuming difficult steps.
Lemon Frozen Yogurt
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from one lemon)
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla vodka (I’m guessing limoncello would have been divine too)
Heat the sugar and water, to make a simple syrup, in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Refrigerate until well chilled.
In a large bowl (I use a big batter bowl because it pours so nicely), mix all the ingredients, including the chilled simple syrup. Some people say to chill again, sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. Pour into your ice cream maker and process according to directions.
Perfect blend of sweet and tart!
