In getting ready for summer, I’ve been playing around with different ideas for frozen yogurt. Today I decided to try Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Nonfat Frozen Yogurt. I love strawberry banana yogurt, so why not strawberry banana frozen yogurt. I knew it would probably need some extra sugar, but not that much more. When all was said and done, my Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Nonfat Frozen Yogurt turned out delicious and refreshing!
In this recipe I added just a little more sugar, since I thought the addition of banana might need it. I think the adjustment was well worth it. The flavor is smooth and fresh, while being just sweet enough to satisfy anyone. I have a little less vanilla extract, but just enough to add some flavor to the plain yogurt. All in all, it turned out wonderful and tasted delicious!
Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Nonfat Frozen Yogurt
2 cups nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup sugar (or the appropriate equivalent of non-sugar sweetener)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup skim milk
2 cup fresh strawberries frozen lightly and pureed
1 fresh banana pureed (with the strawberries)
Miniature dark chocolate chips or fresh strawberries to sprinkle on top (optional)
Puree the strawberries and banana in a blender. Then blend together the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and skim milk in a mixing bowl with a hand mixer on medium speed until the sugar is dissolved, about one to two minutes. Once done, blend the strawberry banana puree into the yogurt mixture with the hand mixer on low for about one minute. Following the directions of your yogurt/ice cream maker, turn it on and slowly pour in the blended yogurt and berry mixture. Once it is all in the yogurt maker, let the mixture thicken into your creamy yogurt as the machine works its magic, usually about thirty minutes. When ready, scoop the frozen yogurt into serving dishes, putting any leftover frozen yogurt into a freezer storage container and freeze for later.
My Scrumptious Strawberry Banana Nonfat Frozen Yogurt is a delicious and refreshing treat for those warm days ahead. You are going to love the fresh fruit flavor from making homemade frozen yogurt using all fresh fruit. Serve it with dark chocolate mini chips or whatever you prefer. Topping it off with fresh strawberries is another great choice. However you decide to eat your frozen yogurt, be sure to enjoy!
