BLUEBERRY AND BANANA SMOOTHIE
250g fresh or frozen blueberries
2 bananas, peeled and sliced
175ml blueberry frozen yoghurt
8 ice cubes
Put all the blue-berries, bananas, frozen yoghurt and ice into a smoothie maker or a strong blender and process until smooth.
Pour into glasses and drink immediately.
* If you can’t get blueberry frozen yoghurt, use vanilla frozen yoghurt. It works just as well.
PASSION FRUIT FROZEN YOGHURT DESSERT
385g can of condensed milk
500ml granadilla yoghurt
500ml vanilla frozen yoghurt, slightly softened
Fresh granadillas to decorate
Beat the cream until thick. Beat in the condensed milk.
Stir in the yoghurt and vanilla frozen yoghurt.
Spoon into a container and freeze until required.
Soften slightly before serving. To unmould, dip the container into hot water for a few seconds then turn on to a serving plate. Spoon over the fresh granadilla pulp before serving.
* Vary the flavour of the dessert by using a different flavoured yoghurt.
MINI FROZEN YOGHURT SANDWICHES
1 litre vanilla frozen yoghurt
8 Oreo biscuits, crushed
48 mini chocolate-covered digestive biscuits
Let the frozen yoghurt soften slightly then mix in the crushed biscuits. Spread the frozen yoghurt mixture into a pan 18 x 22cm.
Freeze until solid.
Use a cookie cutter the same size as the mini biscuits to press out rounds from the ice cream.
Sandwich the ice cream between two of the chocolate biscuits. Keep the ice cream sandwiches in the freezer until you are ready to serve.

750ml lemon-flavoured frozen yoghurt

1 jar of lemon curd
150g small meringues, roughly crushed
Mix the lemon-flavoured frozen yoghurt with the icing sugar until combined.
Mix in the lemon rind and juice. Fold through the lemon curd and meringue.
Place the mixture into a container and freeze until solid.
