My new ice cream maker makes me want to make all sorts of deliciously unhealthy desserts all the time. And I'll get to that. But I thought it might also be good to come up with a (relatively) healthy alternative that I could whip up. And what better to make than fresh strawberry yogurt. Mmmmm.
It's super easy and requires only four ingredients. Ready? I thought so.
Fresh Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
- 1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 (6 oz.) containers Greek vanilla or plain yogurt*
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
After an hour or so, blend the strawberries and sugar until they are pureed (liquid). Add strawberries, yogurt and lemon juice to your ice cream maker and make as directed.
Keep any leftovers in the freezer and remove from freezer about ten minutes before serving, so it can soften up to frozen yogurt consistency.
*I like the addition of a little bit of vanilla to the flavor. However, the plain yogurt is also delicious. So it's really up to you and your preferences.
This is really good all by itself. But if you'd like, you could serve it alongside some lemon bars. Because that would be awesome.
