Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Yum
 I love this time of year... Strawberries are everywhere in the grocery store and they are ripe and delicious.  My kids and I love strawberries and we can eat a whole cartoon of them and not feel an ounce of guilt.  As much as I love fresh strawberries, the warm weather is upon us and a frozen treat is very much welcome to cool us off.  This is such an easy recipe and you can actually have immediate gratification if you use frozen strawberries because it  whips up into a soft serve ice cream texture.   If you desire a firmer texture, then you can freeze it for a couple of hours and enjoy it then.  I also love mixing in the fresh strawberries into the frozen yogurt because it gives you a chance to enjoy both fresh and frozen strawberries and I never complain about there being too many strawberries in my dessert.  This is one frozen treat I think my family and I will enjoy many, many times this warm weather season.


 Ingredients:
1lb frozen strawberries
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1/4  cup sugar (or diabetic friendly sugar substitute like splenda)
1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1 Tbs lemon juice



 Directions:
Place all ingredients into blender (except for fresh strawberries) and blend until smooth.  The texture should be that of soft serve ice cream.  Mix in fresh strawberries and serve right away for soft serve ice cream or for firmer ice cream, put into freezer for several hours.  Enjoy.

  6. I think we're finally close to having strawberries down here. I can't wait to take Dudette out to the field to pick a bucket (or two). This might just well be on the list of things I'll make with them.

  12. I've made sorbet, ice cream and sherbet, but never frozen yogurt. I definitely need to change that and this one is a great place to start. Looks SO yummy!

  14. I'm extremely happy and excited about strawberry season! My friend invited me to go strawberry picking today but I was on a trip so I couldn't make it. Simple strawberry froyo is definitely my #1 choice even before chocolatey flavor. :)

  15. How much is 11b in metric, I have tried to search for what is "b" but the closest I found is pounds and that works out about 4.5kilograms which seems a little excessive. Also 1/4 of what in sugar?
    Cheers,

    1. Hi Daina, It's one pound of strawberries. I used the following site for conversion:

      http://www.metric-conversions.org/weight/pounds-to-kilograms.htm

      and it gave me 1lb = 0kg 453.59g

      Sorry about the cup being omitted... I corrected it above. :)

      Hope it makes more sense now. :)
