To make 8 servings of this yogurt ice cream, begin by cutting peeled, fresh ginger into thin slices. Place the ginger slices in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute.
Drain the pan, keeping ginger in, and add cream, sugar, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt. Once all sugar and salt has dissolved, remove pan from heat and set aside to allow mixture to steep for 1 hour.
After steeping, pour the warm ginger-milk mixture through a strainer into a blender, discarding the ginger. Add ¾ of the coarsely chopped chocolate (we highly recommend using Divine 70% Dark Chocolate Bars, asusing the highest quality chocolate is essential for achieving the perfect chocolate flavor) and blend until completely smooth (set aside remaining chopped chocolate). Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until well chilled.
Once chilled, whisk in Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt and freeze mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions, mixing in the remaining chopped chocolate at the end. When serving, feel free to sprinkle with chopped crystallized ginger to add an extra-special touch!
