Lemon and Basil Frozen Yogurt

Lemon and Basil Frozen Yogurt
This recipe is inspired by the gelato I had in Milan, a recipe from the TOTAL Greek Yogurt site and my visit to Gelato Mio workshop last week.
I made the frozen yogurt with double cream this time instead of whipping cream (click here for strawberry frozen yogurt). The whipping cream in my opinion gave a more ice cream like taste and the double cream gave it a creamy mousse taste. Chose whichever you prefer.
This frozen yogurt/mousse is really easy and quick to make. There are only about 3 steps!

  1. This looks great. I am totally going to try this – looks so easy! Is it risky to mess about with different combos or can you adapt it quite easily?

    I think you could mix any fruit or spice combo in there. I had luck with berries.

    The lemon curd made it pretty sweet so I didn't add any sugar in but I did add some in wih the berries since they were a little tart.
