Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt GF SCD

Sundae dish full of raspberry ripple ice cream

There's nothing more delicious than frozen yogurt! It's like a cross between sorbet and ice cream. It's definitely worth investing in an ice cream maker,especially if you are following the SCD or a gluten free diet. When I first made frozen yogurt we were stood over the bowl scooping small spoonfuls from the machine as it was churning, we couldn't wait for it to finish, it was a delicious ice cream recipe from Grain-Free Gourmet.

I love fresh raspberries but for this recipe I used frozen raspberries, so convenient and you can eat them the whole year round! If you're making ice cream or frozen yogurt then it's a good idea to choose a mild honey. I prefer to use Acacia honey for SCD recipes since it seems to sweeten without overpowering the taste. You can also use yogurt cream to make this ice cream as explained in my Coffee, Hazelnut and White Chocolate Ice Cream recipe.

250g frozen raspberries

500ml SCD whole milk yogurt (or Greek Yogurt if GF)
60-80ml acacia honey
1 tblsp vanilla extract (alcohol, water, vanilla only)

Pour the raspberries into a pan and add 30 ml of honey (or two tablespoons) and one tablespoon of water.

Pour the mixture back into a clean pan and bring to the boil.  Let it simmer until the mixture reduces and becomes a thick syrup. Don't boil it down too much because when it cools it thickens even more. Set aside to cool.
