Why Katy's Barking Gecko ?!

I love to travel, I love to cook and to try new recipes...

After returning from yet another trip to South Africa I browsed one of my Food Magazin subscriptions and

we started to envision how it might be to have a small, a very small restaurant. Somewhere in Australia or

South Africa.
Maybe 4 or 5 tables.
To be in the kitchen wearing t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops cooking for fun and nice people....

Doesn't that sound great ?!
We even came up with a name: Katy's Barking Gecko

Well there is no restaurant (so far....), but heaps of favourite recipes.

Easy-Peasy Frozen Strawberry Yoghurt

Well Spring is here, YAY!!!
And I was craving for some ice cream.
Being lactose-intolerant does not make it too easy to find something to satisfy my craving.
So I thought the best way is to make my own (fortunately we have quite a good range of lactose-free dairy products here in Germany).
I do not own an ice cream maker, but I do own a food processor/chopper.
So here we go....

A recipe for easy- peasy Frozen Yoghurt or Ice Cream with Strawberries.


300g frozen unsweetened Strawberries
70g powdered sugar
200g Yoghurt or Cream (if you would like to make Ice Cream instead of Frozen Yoghurt)


Place the Strawberries in the food processor/chopper. Let them defrost for about 15 minutes.
Add the sugar and Yoghurt or Cream.
Process until you get an Ice Cream with a smooth texture.
If the texture of the mixture is too runny, cover it and place it in the freezer for about 10-20 minutes.
