Beautiful weather is finally here, time to eat ice cream with every meal! Ice cream with breakfast, lunch and dinner? Oh yes you know it, I'm a bit of a sinner. But hey, you know what they say? Apple a day keeps the doctor away! So if ice cream has apples it's TOTALLY OKAY! I got a box of Marlene apples and I saw sun was out. I was not gonna make apple pie, oh no I had no doubt. Nothing against apple pie, but I'm not gonna lie, ice cream wins any day, because it is my bae! Ok, I'm gonna stop rhyming and share the recipe! ENJOY!
You will need:
500 g greek yoghurt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 apple, not peeled but cored and chopped in smal pieces
1 tsp butter
1 tbsp sweetener (I used sucralose)
4 tbsp agave sirup
For the apple sauce:
600g red Marlene apples, peeled, cored and chopped
Juice from one lemon
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp honey
How to make it:
Make the apple sauce. Put the apples in a saucepan with the lemon juice and water. Cover and cook over a low heat until they are soft and mushy.Take off the heat and mix the honey. Cool.
In a pan, heat up the butter. Add apple pieces and the sweetener. Stir often and bake till the pieces of apple caramelize.
In a bowl, mix Greek yoghurt, apple sauce, cinnamon, agave sirup and pieces of caramelized apple. Put it in a ice cream maker and freeze till they are gorgeously smooth and delicious.
***If you don't have an ice cream maker, use the freeze and stir method: put the ice cream mixture in a baking dish and put it in the freezer. Remove it after 45 minute and stir vigorously with a spatula. Return to freezer but continue to check and stir well ever 30 minutes. Keep doing that till the ice cream is frozen, it usually takes about 3 hours.
