You'd never believe this creamy treat is fantastically Free, and there are heaps of alternative flavours you can create.


  • 2 175g pots of vanilla Muller Light yogurt/ any Free vanilla yogurt
  • 500g fat free fromage frais
  • 3 tbsp Sweetener
  • Dash of Vanilla essence


  1. In a large bowl stir together the vanilla yogurt and fromage frais. Add the sweetener and vanilla essence, then pop in a freezer-proof tub. Place in the freezer and lightly whip approximately every 30 minutes to stop ice crystals forming.
  2. Your ice cream will be ready in 2-3 hours, when it is set. Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before serving to make it easier to scoop.

Tip: If you fancy a 99-style ice cream, a 9g mini Flake is 2½ Syns, a waffle cone is 2.5 Syns and 1tsp chocolate sauce is 1 Syn.

Use different flavour yogurts and add fresh fruit to make different flavours. Strawberries, raspberries and lemon all work well.
