(The Nosher via JTA) — Labne lovers rejoice — you can now enjoy you favorite yogurt dip as a dessert. If you love tangy, tart frozen yogurt, you are going to love this easy frozen dessert topped with tahini, silan (date honey), regular honey and/or crumbled halvah.
This labne ice cream is incredibly simple to make, but you will need an ice cream machine to make this recipe. If you don’t want to invest in a vanilla bean for this project (they can be pricey), just substitute with 2 teaspoons of good quality, pure vanilla extract.
16 oz labne (can use homemade or store-bought)
1 cup heavy cream
seeds of 1 vanilla bean OR 2 tsp good quality pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup honey
tahini, silan, honey and crumbled halvah toppings (optional)
Make sure to chill the bowl of your ice cream maker overnight.
In a large bow whisk together the labne, heavy cream, honey and seeds of vanilla bean (or pure vanilla extract).
