I am one of those people who loves frozen yogurt, in fact in college I wouldn’t eat all day so I could go to the local yogurt store after class and buy the biggest frozen yogurt I could afford. There was always something so satisfying about diving into a cup of that creamy cool yogurt, usually topped with toasted almonds.
This recipe is for those of you like me, who love frozen yogurt and want the simplicity of making your own and because it’s a little healthier. This recipe requires only three ingredients; good yogurt, fresh or frozen strawberries and maple syrup – think of this as a frozen smoothie of sorts. After pureeing, pour it into a loaf pan and freeze for 3+ hours, or until soft serve to firm – depending upon your preference. The only caveat is that if you freeze it overnight, you have to let it sit out for 30 minutes before it’s ready for scooping.
I think you’ll love this little treat and if you prefer it sweeter – go ahead and add another splash of maple syrup to the mix, but not too much because you don’t want to miss out on that nice fruity taste. Yeah, for frozen yogurt day!
2 cups organic Greek yogurt, I used non-fat
