The best frozen yogurt, EVER…

The girls have been on Spring Break for the past week and then some. I can honestly say that I have had the best time with them and am looking forward to a whole summer with them and it can’t come soon enough. We’ve been to the beach, the pool, the park and Busch Gardens and with still plenty of down time for us to just relax.

On one of those relaxing days I decided that I would make some ice cream but after going through the fridge I realized that I had no cream to make it with, but I did find a container of plain yogurt and some beautiful, ripe strawberries…

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups of whole fat plain yogurt
1 cup of pureed strawberries (cut up and pureed in your blender or food processor)
1/3 cup of local honey

Directions:

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Pour into ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturers directions until frozen. (Mine took about 20 minutes)
  • Scrape into a sealable container and freeze for about 2 hrs or until firm enough to scoop.
  • Serve with berries, granola or even chocolate syrup or chips!
***This could easily be adapted to any fruit you have and can make into a puree...think raspberry, blackberry, cherry or even banana!!!

This is the perfect solution for those "beyond their prime" strawberries in my fridge.
