Green Tea Brebis Frozen Yogurt

I need space in my freezer. I bought a whole bunch of meat by accident, and I need to move things out of the freezer that don't need to be there. Cool packs? Gone. Ice cream maker? Get you out of the freezer & make some ice cream.

I love ice cream but I'm trying to be good. My waistline never really recovered from my trip to Kuwait this year so I'm not too keen on eating custard with whipped cream. Instead, I bought some Greek style sheep yogurt, and some thin, drinkable goat yogurt. The goat yogurt & sheep yogurt are mild, but they give an extra tangy freshness.

Green Tea Brebis Frozen Yogurt
1 Tbsp match green tea
3 Tbsp hot water
5 Tbsp sugar
125 ml Greek-style yogurt (from sheep milk)
250 ml thin goat milk yogurt

In a small bowl, mix tea, water and sugar. Add to the 2 yogurts. Blend everything well. Place in ice cream maker, and follow the directions of the machine.

I might add a little less tea next time, but my goal has been met. I have more freezer space. I just need to figure out what to do with that spinach...

I haven't made ice cream once yet this summer....time to rectify that. I love fruit sorbets, but also have a hankering for a peanut butter and banana ice cream with chocolate chunks. Your picture looks great!

Thanks! The pic is with my cell phone - I love it so much!

Peanut Butter & Banana ice cream with chocolate sounds amazing.... Mmmm... It'd also get rid of those overripe bananas in my freezer I was saving to bake with! ;-)
