Many cookbooks and TV cookery shows warn us that we must have recipes up our sleeves for the “Unexpected Guest”. I always imagine hordes of ravenous Unexpected Guests wandering the country looking for victims. So, if you’re troubled by the pesky Unexpected Guest, then this recipe could come in handy.
Frankly, I should be ashamed of myself for even calling it a recipe. But since I have no pride and I currently have an infatuation for choccy philly (OK, Philadelphia with Cadbury, if I have to call it by its proper name) then I must point out that it makes a very pleasant and surprisingly healthy frozen yogurt.
This probably isn’t the most refined chocolate ice you’ll ever have but it’s very moreish and really couldn’t be simpler.
250 g Philadelphia Cadbury (a.k.a. choccy philly)
250 ml low-fat pouring yogurt
4 tsp icing sugar (optional)
Whisk together the philly and the yogurt thoroughly. Whisk in the icing sugar, if you decide to use it. (The icing sugar isn’t essential but freezing seems to kill off sweetness, so I put a little back in.) Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn in the usual way.
And that’s it.
If you store this in the freezer for any time, then it’s best taken out and allowed to soften a little before eating.
Despite the fact that this is hardly a recipe at all, I’m submitting it to the May Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream challenge over at Kavey Eats. Now, you’ll have to excuse me, there’s someone at the door – I think it might be an Unexpected Guest or that annoying person from Porlock again.
