Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Cheese

A delicious frozen dessert made with yogurt cheese (labneh) instead of plain yogurt, this cultured treat will make your sweet tooth smile.



  • 2 cups yogurt cheese (labneh)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup thinly sliced strawberries
  • 8 squares milk chocolate (optional)


  1. Stir together the cheese, sugar and vanilla in a large glass bowl. 
  2. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites with a whisk until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into cheese mixture, using a wooden spoon to gently blend. 
  3. Fold in strawberries.
  4. Cover bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6-10 hours, or overnight. 
  5. Pour mixture into a crank freezer or electric ice-cream maker and follow manufacturer’s instructions. 
  6. Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan and use it to drizzle over the dessert before serving.


Makes 6 servings. 

If you do not have an ice cream maker, improvise using this method:

  • Fill a quart-sized plastic bag two-thirds full with the strawberry mixture; zip closed.
  • Place inside a gallon-size plastic bag. Hold the mouths of the bags flush and fill outer bag with crushed ice and rock salt, in layers. 
  • Zip the outer bag closed and begin to massage and shake the bags to achieve the same effect as from a classic ice cream freezer. 
  • Keep checking the inner bag to see if the ice cream has frozen sufficiently.
