I have a question and would value your thoughts.
I tried a shop bought 'Coconut flavoured Frozen yoghurt' as a dessert tonight, which I 'thought' might be a healthier option than eating ice-cream, but I realised it actually contained a similar proportion of sugars (approx 22 g per 100g) as the ice-cream had.
I am a fan of the Total range of yoghurts, as the sugar content is only 3g (or thereabouts), so I was wondering whether I could make my own frozen yoghurt, using that product and perhaps adding some coconut oil for flavour. I looked on the internet and found the following American blog post about making frozen yoghurt, which I think is a good post - and helpful to people who want to make their own frozen yoghurt:
However, the blogger concludes that you still need to add sugar to the yoghurt in order to get the creamy consistency - and comments that freezing Greek yoghurts (in particular) can end up with quite chewy textures...!
I am just wondering if anyone has every tried making frozen yoghurt, and whether it is absolutely the case that you'd need to add sugar. Or have you come across a recipe where the sugar content is kept really low, but the taste of the frozen yoghurt turned out really good. Or maybe there's an alternative addition that I could try, to make something tasty?
Any suggestions gratefully received.
p.s. I wanted to put this as a 'question' and not a 'post' but the option to choose 'question' doesn't appear to be there currently...
