Hibiscus Flower (Zobo) Frozen Yogurt

Hibiscus Flower (Zobo) FroYo (Frozen Yogurt)

Next in line in my quest to incorporate my delicious (somewhat nutritionally beneficial,...?! only because of the high levels of anti-oxidants in the petals) and exciting Zobo Syrup into other dishes, I present my yummy frozen yogurt dish which can be eaten as a dessert or just as a refreshing snack. It is really straightforward to make, simple ingredients and I promise, you will find it very enjoyable.

So shall it not be heard in any Nigerian house hold that there is nothing to serve for dessert....this dish makes a great change from the typical ice-cream or cake dessert. Give it a try.

What you need

What to do
  1. Transfer the yogurt into a mixing bowl and add a generous amount of condensed milk. This acts as a sweetener and it also helps to give a good texture to the frozen yogurt. If the Greek yogurt is still too thick after adding the condensed milk then add some fresh milk to it. This will loosen the mixture without increasing sweetness.
  2. Give the two ingredients a really good mix, preferably with a whisk to help the yogurt develop a good consistency. Take a portion of the mixture and add a good amount of the zobo syrup to give a contrasting light violet colour to the yogurt.  
  3. Scoop the white mixture into into moulds first land place in the freezer to freeze (this may take a few hours). Keep the coloured mixture the fridge till later.
  4. Once the white mixture is frozen enough, scoop some of the coloured mixture and return to the freezer until frozen. Creating this two colour layers is optional.
  5. When ready to serve, carefully remove the frozen yogurt and place on a plate
  6. Sprinkle fine minced zobo petals over the frozen yogurt and also drizzle zobo syrup....serve immediately.

    1. Great job, looks good. will try it. pls Greek yoghurt is a bit hard to get in PH where I live. Can you pls suggest a substitute.

    2. Esther, you can use any of the other types of yogurt available in your area. You may want to try a couple of them out to determine which one gives the best result. Choose the unsweetened or ones with low sugar... Thanks for stopping by.

    3. Nathan, you should try the recipe..., you'd love it..!
