Berry season is in full swing and frankly I can never get enough of them, with yogurt and granola for breakfast, in pancakes, muffins, cakes, I'm really not fussy. As a rule however, I'm generally not an icecream or frozen yogurt lover as I seem to be susceptible to painful brain freeze when eating anything frozen. But I make an exception for this one, David Lebovitz's frozen strawberry yogurt (without the alcohol). Nothing quite beats the homemade flavour.
This little contraption is a hand crank ice cream maker purchased at my favourite thrift store last summer for a couple of dollars. It's a perfect way to get the children involved - they crank the handle for 5 minutes, it goes back in the freezer for an hour, gets cranked again for 5 minutes and so on for about 4 or 5 hours. Not too labour intensive and really worth the effort!
