Stop Buying Frozen Yogurt and Make Your Own
August 28, 2013 22 Comments
Snack Girl is so proud of herself. She made this beautiful bowl of strawberry frozen yogurt (and then ate it).
In my cute little town, we have not one, not two, but THREE places to buy frozen yogurt. Crazy. My children love these places because they allow you to serve yourself and you can put fun things like gummy bears on the yogurt. My daughter managed to ring up a $7 frozen yogurt when I wasn’t paying attention.
Now, I always pay attention.
But, who needs these pricey venues when you can make your own? I made this lovely frozen strawberry frozen yogurt with my food processor and it took me about 5 minutes.
I started with frozen strawberries, which is important for the “frozen” part of frozen yogurt. Then, I added yogurt and sugar. The sugar is optional. I tasted this and decided it needed a little bump to be truly a dessert.
Feel free to substitute agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup for sugar here. You can use regular plain yogurt or greek yogurt. Whatever you have will work.
Once you realize how easy this is, you will never buy frozen yogurt again. This is less expensive AND tastes so fresh!
