Cheaper-Than-The-Ice-Cream-Truck’s Frozen Yogurt

The problem with trying to overeat ice cream on a hot summer day is the high sugar and fat content: too much and our stomachs hurt. Weird.

So wouldn’t you know it that Nutrition Action Healthletter’s monthly recipe was for homemade frozen yogurt. 3 ingredients, 1 blender, and BAM! So much frozen heaven that didn’t leave my feeling over-sugared (that could be a word…). Very refreshing!

Found: Nutrition Action Healthletter

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries (I used strawberries)
  • 3/4 cup low-fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • Optional toppings: unsalted nuts, fresh berries, low-sugar chocolate syrup (Nesquick has one), 2 tsp. maple syrup, chocolate (alike this recipe’s picture, I used 1 square of Ritter Sport’s Cocoa Mousse – it added on only 47 calories and 4 grams sugar)

How to:

  1. In some sort of blender (I used a Vitamix), combine the fruit with the yogurt.
  2. Blend until completely smooth.
  3. Add toppings.
  4. Eat.

Note: extras may be frozen in Ziploc containers. Once frozen, you need to let it defrost a little prior to eating it again, as it leaves the freezer quite hard (no freezer burn).
