Lemon & Lavender Curd Frozen Yogurt

August 12, 2013

I know I have an obsession with frozen sweets.

No need for an intervention people – This stuff is going to kick your taste buds out of your mouth.

No joke.

We’re talking low-fat lemon curd, lavender and greek yogurt (with a touch of honey).

Can I get a hell yeah?

That’s right. Deliciousness.

So dust off that sweet old ice cream maker of yours and get this baby going in no time!

Make this delicious curd, cool it down to room temp (fridge temp is ideal),

mix your yogurt and honey in – throw in your ice cream maker, go have a drink and let the machine do it’s job!

Shazam!

Look at this frozen goodness.

We finished it in 2 nights. But guess what? It’s yogurt so I don’t need to go run my life away to burn it!

That right there ladies and gentlemen, makes me smile like it was Saturday, everyday!

Enjoy my lovelies!
