Triple Berry Frozen Yogurt

I have been tinkering with making a healthier version of ice cream that is still creamy, but doesn’t use heavy cream. Basically the things I have tried are all delicious fresh from the ice cream maker, but don’t freeze well. I guess that is something you forfeit when you go “healthy.”

This is my favorite creation thus far, with my experiments & is only 150 calories when split into thirds. It’s definitely creamy just like soft serve ice cream. This recipe makes 3-4 generous servings, so for a small family it’s perfect to have a fresh, creamy, frozen dessert.

Triple Berry Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Dannon Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup frozen berry blend (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar

Instructions

  1. Freeze the bowl to your ice cream maker ahead of time. (I keep mine in the freezer for whenever I want a frozen treat.)
  2. In a bowl, stir greek yogurt, milk & sugar together.
  3. Start your ice cream maker, & pour in yogurt mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, microwave frozen berries 30 seconds at a time until they are thawed enough to either puree or break up in the ice cream maker. (I did 30 seconds twice.) Then either puree the berries & add them to yogurt, or add them whole (they will still be pretty chunky, so if you don't like fruit chunks, puree them with a little milk or plain in a food processor/blender.)
  5. Let mixture work in the ice cream maker for 10-15 minutes or until it balls up & is frozen. Scoop & serve immediately. Does not freeze well. (If you do freeze leftovers you'll want to gradually soften the mixture in the microwave 15 seconds at a time until you can mash up the mixture with your spoon.)
