Now that summertime is here, you are going to LOVE this recipe! It is the easiest way in the world to make frozen yogurt (no ice cream maker needed). You just throw all the ingredients into the food processor, pulse a few times, and ta-da, it is ready, no waiting at all! Pretend you are at a yogurt parlor, serve with toppings in little bowls, adding sprinkles, crunch and lots of smiles.
For the Frozen Yogurt:
1 pound frozen good-quality fruit like strawberries, raspberries, or mangoes (do not defrost!)
1⁄2 cup honey (more or less depending on how sweet you are)
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
For the Toppings:
Chopped fresh fruit like strawberries, mangoes, and bananas
Crunchy cereal, chocolate chips, chopped nuts
One little helper and one big helper
One food processor (a blender can be used, but it takes a few scrape downs with a spatula)
A rubber spatula
Measuring cups and spoons
To Make 4-6 servings (eat today, they don’t last well in the freezer)
Dear little helper, please measure out the frozen fruit and honey into a food processor.
Kindly ask your big helper quickly to pulse the processor until the fruit is coarsely chopped.
Little helper: Add the yogurt, lemon juice, vanilla, and salt to the fruit.
Big helper: Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice.
Little helper: Taste! Does it need more honey, vanilla or lemon juice? (This is a very important step, so do it thoughtfully.)
The frozen yogurt should be firm enough to be served directly from the food processor, but if it is a little soft, let it harden in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
YAY! Now you have a bright, tangy, and so good-for-you dessert you’ll want to make it again tomorrow.
