This will be a short post, but I #need to share this. I adore frozen yogurt—or fro-yo, if you will—but hate going into shops named after various colors/berries and walking out with throwaway container that somehow cost almost $10.00. No. I will not do this on a regular basis even though it is summertime in Chicago, and I’m craving something cool, tart, and creamy. Instead I bought a large container of Fage brand Greek yogurt and tried my hand at doing it myself. Results? Better than expected! Definitely my new go-to summer treat. I’ll give two variations, depending how fancy you want to be. Here’s how:
Soft-Serve Frozen Greek Yogurt
3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tbs sugar (more or less to taste)
1. Freeze Greek yogurt
2. Combine yogurt with lemon juice and sugar in a blender cup.
3. Blend until creamy
That’s it! Now top it with fresh fruit, chocolate chips, or whatever strikes your fancy, and save your money for important things like concert tickets and, you know, rent.
Here’s the other variation of the recipe:
Frozen Greek Yogurt (Tropical)
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup coconut milk
juice from 1/2 lime
1 tbs sugar
1. Freeze Greek yogurt and banana.
2. Combine yogurt, banana, coconut milk, lime juice, and sugar in a blender cup.
3. Blend until creamy.
Stay cool, kids.
