Japanese Plain Frozen Yogurt
makes about 1 quart
1 quart plain whole milk yogurt
juice of 1/2 lime (because I've noticed that once frozen, food tastes a little more bland and it needs a tart punch if it's going to be good frozen yogurt)
4 T honey
3 T granulated sugar
Fresh fruit to serve with. (I used Strawberries this time, but I think peaches or orange segments or any berries would be really good.)
- In a fine mesh sieve sitting over a bowl, place cheesecloth or a coffee filter, and pour the yogurt into it. (I didn't have a big enough strainer and didn't buy big enough coffee filters, so I had to do it in 2 bowls). Let refrigerate and drain for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- Once drained, whisk in honey, sugar, and lime juice (to taste).
- Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
- Immediately put frozen yogurt in an airtight container with plastic wrap touching the top surface. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer for 4 hours (ish?).
- Serve with fresh fruit.
