Woo hoo! These frozen yoghurt sandwiches with fresh strawberries and white chocolate could not have come at a better time. As I hit publish on this post, it is a 38-degree day (100-degrees F) here in Melbourne. And I for one am glad for a bit of heat after a long, chilly Winter and Spring.
It HAS meant I have gone a bit off script with this month’s Recipe ReDux theme which was about trimming the table with our holiday baking/dessert.
But it just doesn’t seem right making a baked holiday dessert when the weather is heating up, and we have all of this fresh fruit coming into season (If you are looking for something a bit more traditional, you might like my recipe for sugar crunch cookies).
So I have taken the classic ice cream sandwich and given it a re-vamp; turning it into a frozen yoghurt. Which to me complements the super cheap fresh strawberries I blended in with it perfectly. And just to make it a bit more festive, there is some white chocolate chunks in there too.
What I also think is great about these frozen yoghurt sandwiches is that you can wedge them between the wafers as I have done for a casual dessert. Or, you can make a more sophisticated dessert by serving the frozen yoghurt sandwich on a plate, decorated with the wafers, more fresh fruit and some melted chocolate. So it is more like a semifreddo. Win!

These frozen yoghurt sandwiches give the classic a modern edge. With fresh strawberries and white chocolate, they are sure to be a summer favourite!
- Prep Time: 7 hours 30 mins
- Total Time: 7 hours 30 mins
- Yield: 12
- Category: Dessert
- 250g fresh strawberries, hulled
- 2 tablespoons caster sugar
- 500g Greek yoghurt
- 1/2 cup (125ml) thin cream
- 100g white chocolate, chopped
- 125g fresh strawberries hulled and roughly chopped
- 24 ice cream wafers
- Add the 250g hulled strawberries and caster sugar to a food processor and process until smooth
- Add the yoghurt and process until well combined
- Pour the mixture into a shallow plastic container. Cover and freeze for around 3 hours or until firm
- Grease a lamington or slice tray (one that is around 20cm x 30cm) and then line with baking paper that hangs over the edges (so you can easily lift the sandwiches out once they are frozen)
- In a large bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form
- Remove the frozen yoghurt mixture from the freezer and chop into pieces that will fit back in the food processor. Process until smooth, then fold the blitzed mixture, the 125g chopped strawberries and the chopped white chocolate into the whipped cream.
- Cover the tray with cling wrap and freeze for 4 hours or until firm
- When ready to serve, lift the frozen yoghurt slab out of the tray and onto a chopping board. Use an ice cream wafer as a template, and cut the frozen yoghurt into 12 pieces. Sandwich the frozen yoghurt pieces between 2 wafers and enjoy immediately!
If you make these ahead of time and have them frozen longer than four hours, I recommend you let the sandwiches “defrost” for about half an hour prior to serving as they can be a bit icy if frozen for a long period of time.
