Since today is officially the second day of summer, I am kickin' things off with some homemade Fro-Yo! This is the healthiest "ice-cream" EVER and tastes fantastic!!! Granted, I won't be swearing off my favorite store bought ice creams "Butter Pecan" and my new fave "Americone Dream," (SO GOOD) but this is a great substitute when you want something cold and sweet on those hot summer nights that'll soon be approaching. Try this recipe with your favorite fruit combination and you too can enjoy Fro-Yo in the comfort of your own home.
Frozen Strawberry Yogurt
Adapted from No Fear Entertaining
2 1/2 cups of whole fat plain yogurt
1 cup of pureed strawberries (cut up and pureed in your blender or food processor)
Honey to taste (I used 1/3 cup)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Pour into ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturers directions until frozen
Scrape into a sealable container and freeze for about 2 hrs or until firm enough to scoop.
OR just put yogurt in container and chill in freezer until firm.
***This could easily be adapted to any fruit you have and can make into a puree...think raspberry, blackberry, cherry or even banana!!!
***Total calories for the entire Fro-Yo is less then 600 calories....WOW!
