Camomile Macarons with Raspberry Froyo!

Phewww...I was just in the nick of time! This MacAttack is closing tomorrow!...and guess what the challenge was...Macaron Ice-cream...and I don't know and have not attempted making ice-cream before! Since frozen yoghurt is a hit in town now, I decided to make my own froyo, woohoo, my way, woohoo!
Camomile Macarons with Raspberry Frozen Yoghurt!
Loved the colour of the shells, and the subtle aroma of Camomile!
I used Jill Colonna's recipe to make the shells and infused them with Camomile tea leaves (I used Twining's). And, here's my recipe for the frozen yoghurt:

Raspberry Frozen Yoghurt
3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, I used frozen raspberries
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream 30% fat content
1 1/2 cups low fat natural yoghurt

Simmer the raspberries, sugar and lemon juice on medium heat for about 15 minutes. Let cool.
Combine with the whipping cream and natural yoghurt. Allow to set in the freezer overnight before use.

I do not own an ice-cream maker, so, what I did this morning was just to allow the frozen yoghurt to thaw a bit and scoop and fill my was raining outside, even then, I had problems with the humidity here in KL and frozen yoghurt was melting.

Anyway...the verdict of this combo...voila...can never be better, love it love it love it!

Tqs MacTweet for this challenge, for now I know how to make my own froyo, my way, that is, haha!

The color combinations are so vibrant and pretty. With frozen yogurt, they are "healthier" macarons, right? Ha ha!
