Oh man, you guys. I don’t even know where to begin with this recipe. I am without words. If I could choose a recipe for you to simply just taste so that I didn’t have to bother trying to explain just how amazing it is, this would be it.
This is no ordinary frozen yogurt – there is soo much flavour going on here. James and I could not get enough. And, we may have avoided eating it in front of the kids so that we could save it all for ourselves. But, don’t feel too badly for them because this is going to be made very often in the coming months.
The recipe is super simple and full of good for you ingredients. Yes, it’s still a treat but one you can feel very good about eating. It’s fruity and tart with just the right amount of sweetness. And it is oh so refreshing.
You may be tempted to swap the maple syrup with honey but it just won’t be the same. Honey tends to overpower other flavours and can become cloyingly sweet when used in large amounts, whereas maple syrup is better at elevating other flavours while hiding in the background (which is why it’s one of my favourite sweeteners to use in place of sugar). If you make your own Greek yogurt this is also considerably cheaper to make. Which makes it all the more enjoyable.
If you have never listened to me before you must listen to me know. Go forth and make this frozen yogurt ASAP!
- 2 cups sliced strawberries
- ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
