Jamun Frozen Yogurt is a delicious summer dessert made with Indian berry called jamun or java plum. The abundance of Jamun (Java Plum) inspired me to step ahead and play with the flavors of the fruit. Hence, the result is Jamun (Java Plum) frozen Yogurt. It is a gluten-free frozen yogurt recipe.
Every summer I discover something new. Something that will mark my memory and taste buds forever, like a simple Stone Fruit Cake, Lotus Stem Curry, or an Indian style Kiwi Sherbet or Jamun Masala Soda. Well, this summer its – jamun frozen yogurt recipe.
I love Jamun for its piquant flavor, vibrant hue, and fibrous texture, and they shine when paired with contrasting flavors such as spices, yogurt, or buttermilk. All you have to be creative with the crimson shades of the fruit.
Jamun needs a little touch of sugar to be transformed into a thick, smooth puree ideal to combine with the cheese-like hung curd. While I was uniting the two ingredients, it seems like they are made for each other.
Making frozen yogurts is like writing poetry. You can adapt to any season, add any ingredients you like, and play around with the different textures. It’s such a creative dessert, so scrumptious and beautiful to look at, and most of all, so delicious.
I love my mango yogurt. It’s not frozen but has that creamy, almost ice cream-like texture.
Frozen Yogurts are exactly the kind of desserts I would like to be served on a hot summer afternoon. They look like little, iced balls of flavor, lavishly layered with the best that summer has to offer, Jamun, and yogurt we can all pitch in and scoop for the best.
