Frozen Desserts| Strawberry Fro Yo ♥ Spring is here ♥ … summer too!

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Strawberry Frozen YogurtSpring is was until here three days ago, and then something happened. Before we could really immerse ourselves into it, we had a summer attack – almost 40C in North India already. That means power cuts, DUST, HEAT and whining kids! Strawberry Frozen Yogurt cheered us up!Strawberry Frozen YogurtI’ve been missing {as Mr PAB reminded me this morning} and it’s those dreaded holidays once again! Yes, the not so terrible anymore teen is done with her exams and is home {and hungry yet screaming diet}, and the ‘now threatening to be quite terrible‘ pre teen is on Spring break. Always hungry! “Et tu, Brute?”Strawberry Frozen YogurtIt’s a struggle to keep the rumbling tummies happy! The lad’s up at 5.30am and sets off cycling with his friends. Comes back in a couple of hours; HUNGRY! The teen emerges out of bed much later; hungry too! She whips up some mean pancakes these days in a matter of minutes, then sits back to indulge. He doesn’t enjoy pancakes but enjoys writing poetry. Was quite obliging this morning and wrote a ‘Spring‘ poem for me in a jiffy, and then gobbled up a couple of Double Chocolate Orange & Oat Energy Bars!I Love SpringIn the midst of this, the pooch is now facing her first real hot Indian summer and flops down every now and then. HOT! Hungry too but then again, dogs are always hungry and she is no exception. I have offered Coco the entire range of dog food and she hates it! I now cook her meals as well  … and much to my joy, she loves it!Coco, the cocker spaniel She is a real sweetheart and almost as charming as the lad, if not more. She now almost ‘sings for her supper‘ and licks her bowl clean in a matter of seconds {She gets veggies including eggplant, zucchini, beets, potato, carrots, spinach, cracked wheat, dal and eggs all cooked together}, and amazingly she loves it!Coco, the cocker spaniel She’s cute as cute can be. Always ready for a game of catch. Forever N A U G H T Y, and happy to pose for the camera too!Strawberry Frozen YogurtBack to the fro yo! Summers here. It’s big time to cut back on calories and revert to low fat food. Fresh exciting zingy flavours are fun. Citrusy marinades, grilled chicken, light salads, fresh fruit, quesadillas, wraps, pasta salads all come to mind. For dessert, fruity frozen yogurts, sorbets, granitas and low fat ice creams really rock! And stuff like buttermilk panna cotta too!Strawberry Frozen YogurtStrawberry Frozen Yogurt This Strawberry Frozen Yogurt was fun and I love the colours. Nothing to it. Just a good balance of flavours and fresh ingredients. I used homemade yogurt hung for 2 days in the fridge to get rid of excess whey and then whizzed in the Thermomix to produce the most sensational fro yo. You can use the same proportions in your ice cream maker.Strawberry Frozen Yogurt I use frozen strawberries mainly because I am inclined to buy too many boxes and hardly find the time to use the perishable fruit immediately. Besides, the Thermomix is most magical when it comes to ice creams and frozen desserts. Its like having an instant ice cream maker on hand as it blitzes the frozen berries into smooth sorbet, frozen yogurt or ice cream in minutes.Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

  15. “…It takes less time for the day to get old” – love this, the poem, the photos and that frozen strawberry yogurt certainly looks like it would do just the trick. 40°C? Jings, that’s hot. Perhaps I shouldn’t be complaining like my French friends how cold it is at 15°C, eh? Stay cool, Deeba.

  22. Blimey, 40c! We had heatwave last week then some parts of country had snow in past few days!

    Needless to say we’re not quite in ice cream making weather yet but I will definitely be remembering this pretty pink fro yo. I especially like how you’ve photographed in the silver pots.
