Home Made Frozen Yogurt

Today we made home made frozen yogurt… it was amazing, and has thus far received a total of two toddler thumbs up.

I found the original recipe over on Just a Taste, which is a pretty fun and very nicely organized recipe site you should totally go explore.  The original recipe was for Strawberry Frozen Yogurt, and as always I started out by pretty much following the instructions completely before I started to tinker a bit…. I am really loving where this recipe tinkering is going and completely loving the fact that I can share this healthy treat with my little guy.  Here are the yogurts I have made so far!

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients:
1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt
3 tablespoons of honey or agave nectar liquid
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 cups frozen strawberries, sliced

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, and turn it on for 5-8 minutes until the desired smoothness is reached.  You may have to shut it off half way through to scrape the sides down.  Then enjoy or freeze for later!

 

After the first batch came out so well I looked at my leftover two cups of frozen strawberries, remembered I had frozen rhubarb we needed to use up and decided to try out this version of the recipe.

 

Strawberry Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients:
2/3 cup plain whole milk yogurt
4 tablespoons of honey or agave nectar liquid
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 cups frozen rhubarb

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, sliced

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor, and turn it on for 8-10 minutes until the desired smoothness is reached.  You may have to shut it off half way through to scrape the sides down.  Then enjoy or freeze for later!

The strawberry rhubarb version is a little more tart and definitely needs more time in the food processor, but I actually preferred it to the plain strawberry.  

I have done some further research into different home made frozen yogurt recipes at this point and I am looking forward to attempting a vanilla cherry version later this week!  This might just be my new favorite thing (and Liam’s too!)
