First, we need to make some whipping cream. Prepare a smaller mixing bowl suitable for whipping. Then, pour a double cream (heavy cream) into the bowl and whisk it with a hand mixer until the cream starts thickening and holds its shape. It usually takes 2 or 3 minutes. Just don’t overdo it… We are making the ice cream, no butter. Then, leave it to rest for later.

Now, take a bigger bowl. Add the Greece yogurt, lemon juice squeezed from a lemon, 5 tablespoons of the clear honey. You can use more if you like a sweet taste. Then, mix it with the hand mixer for 5 minutes make the mixture softer and airier. Then add fruit of your desire, whipped cream from early, and stir everything together. When you finished pour it into a plastic container suitable for the freezer.
