Continuing on from the Pesto dinner the other night…we were in dire need of a frozen treat!!
Now I know you’ve seen homemade tart frozen yogurt all over the blog world, I have too. I think the first one I saw was way back on 101Cookbooks, and one of the more recent ones has been on Lauren’s blog
I liked the proportions of non-fat/low-fat yogurt and reduced sugar that Lauren was using, so I went with those measurements.
- 2 Cups Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
- 1 Cup 2% Greek Yogurt
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- I added about 1/8 tsp vanilla bean paste in the hopes for some flecks of vanilla bean in there…not really sure why I didn’t just use all paste instead…oh well next time
Throw it into your ice cream maker and let ‘er rip!
I was craving some of the toppings that I get when I hit up Berryline…which sometimes involves sugary kids cereal :)
So I bought this bad boy…
OMG, I used to always ask my mom to buy these when I was little!! Of course I’d eat the few I liked and not the rest…hence I didn’t get them often ;)
My yogurt serving was going to involve one of these selections:
Fresh cut up nectarine
The yogurt came out sooooooo creamy!
I almost think it was even a tad too sweet…I might cut down the sugar to 1/3 of a cup next time!
This has got to be the easiest homemade frozen treat yet! I can’t wait to explore the possibilities and flavors.
Perfect for this crazy heat wave we’re having up here!
Time for Body Pump, I haven’t been in weeks!!! Should be interesting ;)
