Pink ! Roses and Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

In spring we had a rose-themed celebration ~ because it was a little early in the season for my roses I chose the old fashioned David Austin rose "Mary Rosa", which is the earliest of bloomers in my rose gardens.

Mary Rosa is an incredibly prolific bloomer, giving an gorgeous show with two or three flushes of blooms throughout the entire summer. The pink blossoms fill the air with the delightful scent of honey and almonds ~ absolutely heavenly!

Interestingly Mary Rose (also his sister's name) was named after King Henry VIII's flagship of the same name, when it was recovered after sinking 400 years earlier.

I garden organically, no sprays or pesticides, so the petals are completely edible.

Strawberry - Rose Frozen yogurt

Showered with rose petals to carry out the theme

I use the electric ice cream maker all year round for all sorts of frozen desserts, not only ice cream but sorbets, gelatos, custards, and often for frozen yogurt. I appreciate being able to control the quality of the ingredients ~ and custom flavors you can't find anywhere else. :)

I always keep the canister in the freezer so fresh, frozen treats can be enjoyed within minutes.
Helpful Tip~ get an extra canister, it really comes in handy if you want to serve two kinds of frozen desserts, and if you store it in the freezer there is no waiting for a canister to freeze.

Someone in my family has sugar issues, so this time I sweetened the frozen yogurt with Splenda (TM) , it turned out creamy and delicious.
