These gorgeous strawberries, which are grown locally in Cameron Highlands, Malaysia are on offer from TESCO. I bought three packs home and churned out this delightful frozen yoghurt. Though our local strawberries are not as sweet as the imported ones, they are still wonderful. I use my homemade yoghurt for this. Frozen yoghurt is definitely a healthy option to ice cream that has egg yolks and cream, and is just as delicious!

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
(adapted from "The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz)
Notes from David " This frozen yogurt is a snap to put together, especially welcome in the summer which is when you may want to limit your time in a warm kitchen. But don't let its ease of preparation fool you; this vibrantly coloured frozen yogurt provides the biggest blast of strawberry flavour imaginable."
1 pound (450gm) fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
2/3 cup sugar (130gm) sugar
2 teaspoons vodka or kirsh (optional)
1 cup (240gm) plain whole-milk yoghurt
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Slice the strawberries into small pieces. Toss in a bowl with the sugar and vodka or kirsh. If using, stirring until the sugar begins to dissolve. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring every so often.
Puree the strawberries and their liquid with the yogurt and lemon juice in a blender or food processor until smooth. If you wish, press the mixture through a mesh strainer to remove any seeds.
Refrigerate for 1 hour, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
