Cherry Bomb Goat's Yoghurt Ice Creams

Every year it always feels like Summer and Christmas and all things happiness when cherries start to appear in the shops. The little, pretty red balls are such a refreshing dash of flavour and colour.
And nothing makes it feel quite like Summertime than beautiful ice cream.

This year my first new ice cream recipe for the Summery, Christmas season involved not just cherries but an ingredient that flavour wise matched them perfectly, a beautiful, creamy yoghurt I had not tried before CapriLac Goat Yoghurt.
This yoghurt is lovely and creamy and the natural flavour has just the right amount of tartness to make it a fantastic ingredient to work with. Goat yoghurt is said to be much better tolerated by a lot of people in regards to digestion as a healthy alternative that is easy to digest and can reduce tummy bloating (and all girls want that in the Summertime!).
It has the beneficial live and active cultures and the CapriLac brand is preservative free and naturally A2 and gluten free.
Found in Coles and Woolworths makes it readily available for families and it turned out to be popular with my kids too!
Cherry Bomb Goat Yoghurt Ice-creams

1 x 500 gm tub CapriLac Goat Yoghurt
1 & 1/2 cups cherries pitted. (Can use frozen too)
1/4 frozen cherries.
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 teaspoons organic vanilla paste
paddle pop sticks (food quality)

  • Divide the yoghurt in half.
  • Prepare mold suitable for ice creams, (even plastic cups are fine)
  • In a blender combine one half the yoghurt with the honey and vanilla. Blend well, set aside.
  • Blend the other half the yoghurt with the cherries.
  • In  the molds pour a layer of the dark yoghurt mixture and drop some frozen cherry pieces in.
  • Top with the opposing coloured layer and keep going until the container is full.
  • Use the pop stick to very gently swirl the two colours lightly together - only just!
  • Freeze covered with cling wrap or a cover like 4Myearth until frozen.
  • About 10 minutes in or when just starting to freeze add the pop sticks in, (they should stand up ok in the mixture by themselves).
  • Run under warm water on the outside to loosen, remove and enjoy!
  • To get a more jazzy and defined look freeze the separate colours one at a time and store the mixtures in the fridge. This will take some time but does look fantastic.
  • You can add sweetener to taste for either layer as desired like raw honey, stevia, maple syrup, rice malt syrup.
  • Try and add frozen cherry pieces in as well as they give a lovely texture contrast.
Toddler Tips
  • Adjust to your child's preferred sweetness tastes. I find with little kids that the less sweeteners you use when young the less they need, give them a chance to taste sweet and tart foods with little added sweetener and then adjust from there as needed.

  1. I've never tried goat yoghurt and will definitely have to look out for it in coles! Great recipe!

  2. I loathe yoghurt, but I wonder if this would make it bearable? After all it is so good for you!
