Secret Snog...

I won't enter a debate about this, Snog is by far the superior frozen yoghurt offering in London.  Frae what? I'd briefly like to clarify I don't in fact endorse their cringe-ish campaign slogans, but I'll keep it to the soft serve for now.

I've started cheating at home (minus the soft serve machine), it's the perfect fresh breakfast with berries and granola.

You can combine in a mixing bowl: 3 cups of Greek yoghurt, 1 1/2 cups of low-fat milk,  1/2 cup of agave nectar and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice (lose the pips).

Agave nectar is sold in health food stores (Holland & Barrett have a few) and a lot of supermarkets. It's sweeter and runnier than honey and often takes the place of sugar in our morning espresso when it's not frequenting London's frozen yoghurt establishments.

Buy an ice cream maker (yes, probably should have mentioned the purchase of this as a pre-requisite) and churn for about 20 to 30 minutes.  Done. An expensive razzle dazzle ice cream machine would be amazing, but my Magimix Le Glacier 1.1 works well enough (for now...). Le Glacier paid itself off in ice cream savings in about two weeks.

Secret Snog is not as creamy as the store offering, but it's downstairs in the fridge every morning without the dilemma of topping selection or the requirement for clothing.

Apologies to my housemates if you ever have to see that.
