Blueberry and strawberry yogurt ice cream: everyone has a right to have blissful time with their ice cream



This one is really special, because it's a request from my sister ^^, she wanted me to make the yogurt ice cream for my niece.

Drizzle it over the churned ice cream and you will get a lovely ripple effect.
My niece really enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
See how happy my niece is!!, she ate 1 cup of it by herself ^^. I think it's one of the best moment for me to see my little angle's happy face. It's the real reason for my cooking and baking, to 
But you don't have to be a little kid to enjoy this ice cream, everyone has a right to have blissful time with their ice cream, haha.

1/4c ................................. Whipping cream
70g ................................... Sugar

 Fit a sieve over a bowl and line it with two layers of cheesecloth (I use 1 layer of clean kitchen towel). Pour the yogurt into the lined sieve, cover with plastic warp, and refrigerate for 6-8 hours to drain. Discard the liquid and measure about 200g of strained yogurt, set aside.
 Whisk the cream cheese in a medium bowl until smooth.
Mix 2tbsp of milk with cornstarch in a small bowl to make a smooth slurry.
Fill a large bowl with ice and water.
Combine the remaining milk, the cream, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan, bring to a rolling boil over medium high heat, and let it boil for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the cornstarch mixture.
Return the mixture to a boil over medium high heat and cook and stirring about 1 minutes. Remove from the heat.
 Gradually whisk the hot milk mixture into the cream cheese until smooth, add the yogurt and blend well.
Let the mixture cool completely over the bowl of ice and water.
Refrigerate overnight.
Churn the yogurt base in the ice cream machine.
Put the ice cream in a box and drizzle with melted jam. Press a sheet of parchment paper directly against the surface, freeze at least 4 hours or until firm.
