Berry Frozen Yogurt – easy and refreshing treat for the summer. Healthier than ice cream yet still creamy and delicious.
Healthy and satisfying treat for the hot summer days. That’s what this frozen yogurt is all about. Three ingredients is all you need to make it. Oh, and lots of cups and spoons because everyone will want some! My kids love yogurt and are super happy that it’s the ice cream season. When they saw me making this frozen yogurt, they didn’t leave the kitchen until it was done. I am happy to give them a healthy treat!
Few weeks ago, I received the newest cookbook by Donna Hay, the Australian food stylist, cookbook author and magazine editor. The title is “Fresh and Light” and what you will find inside is truly fresh and light recipes with absolutely gorgeous photography. It takes your breath away as soon as you touch the cover as the leaves on the front cover photo are embossed!
The book is filled with healthy recipes that inspire creativity in the kitchen. So perfect for the summer when all you want to eat is light food and there is so much fresh produce everywhere. This book covers every type of meal you can crave. The only thing I am missing is the behind-the-recipe stories from the author. I happen to love cookbooks that include that but the lack of it actually makes Donna’s cookbook clean and simple.
I love the whole cookbook but the dessert chapter is of course my favorite. There are healthy chocolate chip cookies that use oil instead of butter that I can’t wait to make and a fudge cake that looks absolutely decadent yet it’s healthy! But since I am on an homemade ice cream kick lately, I decided to try Donna’s Raspberry Frozen Yogurt.
I just had to make a berry swap. My Husband and our youngest daughter have texture issues when it comes to food so I knew that raspberries wouldn’t work for us. I have tons of strawberries on my hands so I decided to use them in this recipe. It was super delicious! I don’t usually bake or cook with agave syrup so I wasn’t sure how it would affect the taste. I have to say, we didn’t really taste it. It’s just a fantastic refreshing yogurt treat with fresh strawberries.
- 125 gr strawberries about 3 large or 4 medium, washed and hulled
- 2 c plain low-fat yogurt
- 1/4 c agave syrup or maple syrup
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Place the mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturers direction, about 25 minutes.
- Scoop into a container and freeze until solid.
