Lavender strawberry ice-cream (ice-lolly)

strawberry yogurt

This ice-cream has a very quick and simple recipe, which even children can prepare alone with a little assistance! I usually prepare them without an ice-cream machine in ice-lolly shapes.

Children especially love its flavour, the lavender is really just slightly palpable on its taste, like a spice. If you don’t have an ice-lolly shaper even that is not a problem, any kind of plastic glass will do, in which instead of a handle we poke a teaspoon.

Ingredients of lavender strawberry ice-lolly:

3/4 cup (2 dl) cream
3 cup (6-7 dl) yogurt
5 tablespoons of sugar (the reason there needs to be this much is, that in the ice-cream the sweet flavour is less perceptible)
2 tablespoon fresh or 1 tablespoon dried lavender
1/3 cup (1 dl) water
1 vanilla sugar
1 pound (500 g) strawberry

Preparation in pictures:

 yogurt mix

We blend the ingredients except the water and the lavender. (Yogurt, cream, sugar, strawberry, vanilla sugar)

lavender syrup

We boil the water together with the lavender and after letting it sit for a few minutes we pour the lavender water into the blender through a screen. If you don’t have a blender a stick mixer can also be used to prepare the ice-cream.

Press the lavender through the screen really well, so all the flavour passes into the ice-cream well.

We pour the mix into moulds. On the right side there are the small plastic glasses, in which I have poked teaspoons, when they were already frozen a bit, so they don’t slant.

This mould has its own stick, which will freeze into the ice-cream. We put the ice-creams into the freezer and freeze them until the stick doesn’t come out of them anymore (now for me this was about 2-3 hours).

There is the frozen lavender ice-cream. 2-3 hours of freezing was enough.
