Mango Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Recipe
The best way to cool down in the summer heat
This summer has been extremely hot over here in Germany. It has also been the first time that I have ever experienced 39°C.. No, I did not enjoy it :D I might have, if I was somewhere near a sea or a lake, swimming and having a holiday, but not working in the kitchen with an oven :D How has it been where you are this summer? And most importantly what do you do to survive the heat?
I have been finding myself craving more vegetables, salads and fruits. Especially watermelon! I mean for me watermelon is like the essence of like when it gets this warm, I cannot survive without it :D Or I can, but I get really cranky and that is just not pretty :D So I just make sure I have some watermelon. Oh, speaking of watermelons, I have a great super simple salad recipe for you here, it is our favorite during the summer. But because there is no way I would be so good and eat just veggies and fruit, I also tend to crave ice cream, a LOT! :D And what could be easier and faster to make than a delicious homemade frozen yogurt popsicle?
This recipe was actually born by an accident. Last year I was making a mango strawberry yogurt cheesecake and had some leftover filling which I then made into popsicles. Those popsicles were so refreshing, delicious and I absolutely loved them! I took some photos and posted those on instagram and when I re-posted that photo a couple of weeks ago the requests for the recipe came in flying :) So here we are :)
I really enjoyed the combination of mango with strawberry, but you can also use any other fruit or berry of your liking.
Keep cool lovelies!

Mango Stawberry Frozen Yogurt
The best way to cool down during summer
50g mango (frozen or fresh)
50g strawberries (frozen or fresh)
30g sugar (optional)
150g natural greek yogurt (10% fat)
100g whipping cream
If you are using frozen mango and/or frozen strawberries, defrost the fruits first before proceeding with the recipe. Defrost separately.
Once defrosted strain the excess liquid, add half of the sugar to the mango and half to the strawberries. Puree with an immersion blender.
In a medium bowl, whisk the whipping cream until stiff peaks.
In two separate medium bowls mix the mango puree with half of the yogurt and cream until well combined and in the other one the strawberry puree with the other half of the yogurt and cream.
Fill six popsicle molds first up to half with mango mix and then up until the top with the strawberry mix, add the popsicle stick and freeze in a freezer for at least 6-8 hours or overnight.
Enjoy the refreshment!
