Conversion chart


  1. Using a cherry stoner or a small sharp knife, remove the stones, then place the cherries in a blender and whiz until smooth.
  2. Over a large bowl, push the puree through a sieve using the underside of a ladle or wooden spoon. Mix the sugar, yoghurt and double cream into the cherry juice.
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice-cream making machine and churn until frozen and thick.
  4. If you don’t have an ice cream making machine, freeze the frozen yoghurt in a plastic container, remove from the freezer after about an hour and a half and whiz in a food processor until smooth.
  5. Remove and repeat one more time, then freeze until completely frozen. Remove from the fridge and allow to soften down a little before serving.
