Review

Perfectly Creamy Frozen Yogurt by Nicole Weston is a staple that anyone with an ice cream maker will want in their recipe book collection. This beautifully illustrated book has recipes that can easily be followed by beginners. It also includes a range of simple to more complex desserts that will rival any frozen yogurt stand.

I have always enjoyed frozen yogurt. It is one treat that I always seem to regret purchasing, as it is usually quite expensive. Weston’s Perfectly Creamy Frozen Yogurt describes various devices that can be used to create yummy treats at home. There are even adaptations to the instructions for those that don’t have an ice cream maker at all, which I found quite interesting. So, if you are on the fence about purchasing a frozen dessert maker, this book will give some insight on what is out there, but it is not necessary to own to get creating some of the recipes.

The method used in this book to create creamy frozen yogurt is one that I have never used before, but it does give amazing results. The “meringue method” is an easy technique that uses an egg white to give stability to the frozen yogurt. The result is a creamy consistency that doesn’t leave ice crystals. I tried the Tangy & Tart recipe, which I was able to make in about half an hour. It was so simple and used ingredients that I already had on hand, including some added toppings! Honestly, it was just as delicious as my favourite yogurt place.

I am looking forward to trying some of the other ideas included in Perfectly Creamy Frozen Yogurt. There are some really amazing looking cakes to create, as well as cookie sandwiches and popsicles. This is such a fun and easy to follow cookbook that provides fabulous results.

    If the ice creams come out as good as the book cover ones, I’ll be impressed. Any homemade ice cream I’ve ever tried is mushy and never hardens well.

    • The Candid Cover says:

      I had great success with this book, actually. I do know what you mean about the mushiness of homemade ice cream. The meringue method and the use of high fat yogurt seem to be the right mix according to this book.

  2. Jaime Lester says:

    Yum! Definitely the perfect summertime book and I think it is going to be a hot one, so that makes it even better!

  3. Julie Waldron says:

    My daughter just bought an ice cream maker and her and her husband are trying to eat healthier. This would be a great book for her. Thanks for the review!
