Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

on July 12, 2012

I was SUPER excited to play with my new Cuisinart Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt Maker that I won from My Judy the Foodie!  First off, I know everyone says this , but I seriously NEVER win anything.  No joke, nothing.  So when Shari (the face behind My Judy the Foodie) emailed me to tell me that I was the lucky winner of her giveaway, I was SHOCKED!  And then when she told me it was for a Cuisinart Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt Maker, it really was my lucky day!!  With three little (always hungry) boys, what could possibly be any more perfect?  It is so easy to use, even my 2 year old can help 🙂

I started with a basic frozen yogurt recipe.  I wanted to use fresh strawberries from our local farmers market and only used 3 Tablespoons of sugar in the entire recipe.  Compare that to Breyer’s or Edy’s!  My frozen yogurt has just 4 INGREDIENTS!  Woooohooooo!  Again, I am thrilled about my new prize 🙂

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup reduced fat milk of your choice
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
  • 4 cups vanilla non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 cups strawberries, pureed

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved (about 1 to 2 minutes on low speed).
  2. Stir in the yogurt and strawberry puree.
  3. Freeze according to manufacturers instructions.  (I spooned it into a tall, upright plastic container to place in the freezer).

I can not wait to create some new fun things with my new Ice Cream Maker!!   Thanks again Shari 🙂
