Deliciously creamy and fragrant frozen yogurt with a strawberry rose syrup. Served with chopped pistachios and dried rose petals.

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve been thinking of a delicious dessert to make for a nice date night in. When Sur La Table approached me to develop a recipe to celebrate the National Frozen Yogurt Day, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to create a frozen treat that celebrated both.

I love how fragrant and smooth this batch turned out. It reminds me of Persian desserts as rosewater and pistachios are commonly used in their cuisine. The flavor combination is magical – the sweetness of the strawberry rose syrup and condensed milk paired with the tanginess of the yogurt had me coming back for more.

How to make Frozen Yogurt

Making frozen yogurt is actually pretty simple and you don’t even need an ice cream maker! All it takes is good quality ingredients and a few minutes to make this batch. Here are some tips and tricks

  • Make sure to use full fat yogurt. For this recipe I chose my favorite greek yogurt, for it’s thicker consistency.
  • Before beating the heavy cream, chill the bowl and paddle. It helps produce stiff peaks.
  • Only use edible rose water and dried roses. My favorite rose water brand, Nielsen Massey, is available at Sur La Table.
  • This recipe lasts up to 7 days in the freezer, covered.

Once you’ve prepared your yogurt base, it’s time to make the strawberry rose syrup. This is actually my favorite part because it’s so fragrant and will leave your kitchen smelling like roses.

I used organic strawberries, sugar, vanilla, dried roses and rosewater. Combined them in a saucepan and cooked over medium heat for a few minutes, until the strawberries softened. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and pulse until smooth. You can use as little or as much syrup as you like. I had some leftover and have been adding it to my morning oats. It’s amazing!

How to assemble your Strawberry Rose Frozen Yogurt

Once you’ve prepared the yogurt base and the strawberry syrup, scoop 1/3 of the yogurt base onto the pan. Alternate between the syrup and the yogurt, and use a skewer or knife to create swirls.

Freeze for 6-8 hours and serve with chopped pistachios and dried rose, if desired.
