I just have to say, thank goodness for frozen yogurt.

Having a general fondness for frozen confections, I try to keep a stash of my “flavor of the moment” in my freezer.  Between the heat and a lingering sore throat the past couple weeks it’s been my saving grace.

Lately goat’s milk frozen yogurt has been preoccupying my taste buds. Even if you don’t tend to like goat’s milk cheese, I think you’ll like goat’s milk frozen yogurt.  With a delicate taste that’s hard to describe, it’s a quiet comfort with a silky, smooth taste and heat and throat soothing properties.

Contrary to what you might think, it’s not “goaty” or even as tart as regular yogurt.  In fact ,goat’s milk yogurt has a naturally creamy texture and a mild flavor that makes for an incredible frozen yogurt.

This isn’t like those cloying sweet, pumped full of air, frozen desserts masquerading as frozen yogurts.  This one has a slight twang of yogurt softened by the mild taste of wildflower honey and a velvety richness while remaining light on the palate.

It has a sophisticated and subtle flavor that is pure luxury and just begs to be paired with juicy seasonal fruit, and the market is just bursting with sweet melons at the moment.

One of my favorites is the French Charentais cantaloupe.  With its heady floral fragrance, it’s juicy and sweet and full of flavor; a real multi-sensory treat.  Infused with a delicate white peony tea, I thought it would be the perfect match for the frozen yogurt.

The subdued floral note of the white tea honey is balanced by the sweetness of the cantaloupe.  The floral flavor of the tea lingers on your tongue for a refreshingly bright finish.

Perfect for when temperatures are soaring and darn good for an irritated throat.

    Hope your throat feels better soon Sylvie – I hate sore throats!

    Gorgeous photos, as always.

    I love goat milk and converting it to a frozen yogurt must be heavenly. Your photos are beautiful and have brought out the refreshing element of this recipe 🙂

    A wonderful combination of flavors..that would all be new to me. I’d love to taste goat’s milk yogurt. And, yes, the canteloupes are gorgeous. We’ve been buying these up too~

    My husband and I had a delightful treat of goat cheese ice cream yesterday at Ruby Jewel Scoops. I like to try this lighter and tangy goat milk frozen yogurt too. I admire your beautiful photos (always)!

    What a tempting summer treat! I’ve tried goat cheese in ice cream but never thought to use goats milk. And the cantaloupe with white tea is inspired, an exceptional dessert.

  6. says

    Sylvie, I am surprised to say I’ve never even tried goat’s milk yogurt! But I do like goat cheese and was going to make Charlie Trotter’s goat cheese ice cream, but never got around to it.
    If this is even milder, everyone should love it. Very refreshing served with the infused cantaloupe! (You’ve done a spectacular job with the photography and presentation. So difficult with a white ice cream.)

    I was sent some goat milk yogurt last year when I did a series on goat products and was quite surprised at the flavor. While I love goat cheese, I wasn’t so sure it would translate to yogurt but you’re right; it seems less ‘goaty’ in yogurt form.

    Feel better soon…I feel better seeing your photos!

    This is such a delectable summer treat. I tried goat milk ice cream for the first time in London, and I fell in love. I’m so glad I have a recipe to recreate it now. Thank you for sharing!

    Now I’m really curious to taste the goat milk frozen yogurt! I think I’m missing out. Also, never thought about using cantaloupe for ice cream or even frozen yogurt. Great recipe and not to mention your gorgeous photography… beautiful work!

    I actually tried goat’s milk yogurt for the first time last week and yes, it’s not as “goaty” as goat’s milk is.

    I made a dip with goat’s milk yogurt and redcurrants and it turned out pretty well. I have some yogurt leftover and would love to try making a frozen yogurt with it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I know I buzzed you on twitter but it’s just not the same. I love your idea of infusing white tea. I haven’t had the chance to use them in my sweet treats, and am eager to experiment. And your photos, they are just so pretty. Truly inspiring and sure keeps me wanting to improve further. Love your posts on Summer photography too. As for this froyo, I can’t wait for look for some nice cantaloupe in our local market to try this recipe out. Have a good week.. Cheers, Jo

    Love that you added goat’s milk to frozen yogurt…I love goat cheese and am always trying to incorporate it into something…I need to look into goat’s milk. Beautiful as always, Sylvie!

    I made the frozen yogurt this morning with stow bought yogurt and homemade raw kefir. It’s fantastic, and doesn’t need the fruit. (I’ll bet the fruit is delish; I just didn’t have it on hand.) I will make this again! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
