  • 400g gooseberry



    The size of large grapes, but with a more spherical shape, gooseberries are related to the…

  • 200g golden caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 500ml pot Greek yogurt
  • 150ml whole milk


  1. Tip the gooseberries and sugar into a pan with 2 tbsp water. Heat gently to dissolve the sugar. Increase the heat and simmer for a few mins to soften the berries.

  2. Remove from the heat, carefully tip into a food processor and whizz to a purée. Add the elderflower cordial and whizz again. Taste to check that the purée is sweet enough and has enough elderflower flavour – remember that the flavour will be diluted by the yogurt, so it needs to be quite sweet. If not, add a sprinkle more sugar or a splash more cordial and whizz again. Mix the yogurt and milk until smooth, then add the purée and mix again.

  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream machine. Churn until frozen – about 2 hrs.

  4. Pour the frozen yogurt into a container and freeze for at least 3 hrs. Will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Delicious! A lighter alternative to ice cream but still really tasty. Definitely needs 20 minutes out of the freezer before it can be served though! Goes really well with the gooseberry and vanilla custard tart also on this website.

Why say you don't need an ice cream machine if one of the instructions is to put it in an ice cream machine!!!!!?????

Because in the "tip" box it says how to make it without an ice cream maker.

Is it really necessary to churn for 2 hours - seems very long!

The churning time will greatly depend on the machine you're using, just churn until frozen, you should be able to see the consistency and the machine will make a different noise.

I have sieved the gooseberry puree as I know my son will be put off by the black pips! I have semi skimmed milk in the house so used ambrosia custard instead of 150ml of whole milk. The taste is fantastic. I am trying the freezer method this time as my ice cream maker is a bit diddy for this amount of mixture.
