It was a very happy day when my mother bought me an ice cream maker, and even though I have two teenagers and a tweenie who think ice cream comes on a stick, we started looking for ice cream recipes, and also started coming up with our own combinations. This recipe, adapted from the booklet included with the ice cream maker, is by far the easiest, and most popular so far!

Strawberry Yoghurt Ice Cream


  • 300 g strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 250 g plain yoghurt
  • 110 g castor sugar

Chef's hint: Don't add all the sugar at once. Often strawberries vary in sweetness, so taste as you go along. You can also use a combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries in equal quantities.


Process the strawberries into a purée. Press the purée through a sieve into a mixing bowl to remove the pips. Some of the pips will slip through, so if you wish, you can sieve the purée more than once.

Mix the yoghurt and sugar until well combined and the sugar has dissolved completely, then add to the strawberry purée and mix well.

Pour into your ice cream maker and allow to freeze according to the instructions. When ready, transfer the ice cream to a suitable container to freeze or enjoy immediately.

Considering I've only made this in an ice cream maker, I honestly can not tell you how to make this manually :)

Yields about half a litre, lasts about 5 seconds, so rather make double the quantities!

Eat now, freeze some for later.
