• 800g plain Greek yoghurt
  • 200ml milk
  • 140g sugar
  • 1 1/2tsp vanilla extract
  • 70g cocoa powder
  • 200 pitted cherries, halved


  • STEP 1
    Line a large, mesh strainer with a thick paper towel and place it over a large, deep mixing bowl. Add the yogurt, cover with plastic wrap, and let it strain the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, and ideally overnight.
  • STEP 2
    Add the milk, sugar and vanilla to a small saucepan. Place it over medium-low heat and warm it just long enough to dissolve the sugar. Set aside to cool.
  • STEP 3
    Remove the yogurt form the refrigerator. Carefully "pour" the strained yogurt into a large mixing bowl, and mix in the cocoa powder.
  • STEP 4
    Add the cooled milk mixture to the yogurt and stir until everything is incorporated and it's a very smooth. Fold in the cherries, cover with plastic, and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, and ideally overnight. Transfer to an ice-cream maker, and freeze according to the machine instructions
  • STEP 5
    For soft serve, serve immediately. Otherwise, place the frozen yogurt in an airtight container in the freezer
