Tasteful Tuesday: Homemade Frozen Yogurt

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

StrawberriesThis icy dessert recipe doesn’t require an ice cream maker, but a food processor is necessary. You’ll need to allow the frozen yogurt to set overnight, so plan ahead for maximum enjoyment!

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups frozen fruit
    (if using fresh fruit, it still needs to be frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
    (low-fat, Greek or non-fat)
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice (fresh is best)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor and process until creamy; about 3 minutes.
  2. Scrape down the sides of the food processor and check for any lumps. Process for additional time if necessary, then transfer to an airtight, freezable container.
  3. Freeze overnight (8-10 hours) and enjoy! We recommend keeping the frozen yogurt in your freezer no longer than one month.
