So it snowed today…..Mr. Weather, don’t you realize that it’s Spring?? Oh well, I guess we can dream right?? This delicious frozen yogurt recipe will make you long for sunshine and happiness. Such a fabulous treat <3
- 3 cups plain organic Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest, chopped fine
- 3/4 cups agave nectar or 2 teaspoons liquid stevia
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, whisk together the sweetener and lemon juice, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat immediately to low and simmer just until the sweetener is completely dissolved into a syrup with the lemon. Allow the syrup to cool completely in a small bowl placed over a larger bowl filled with ice and some water (called an “ice bath”). Be sure to stir while cooling. After the syrup has cooled, chill it in the fridge.
Method 1: Combine the lemon zest and syrup with the yogurt, stirring until completely combined. Churn in a frozen yogurt maker for 20- 25 minutes or until the yogurt has a soft serve consistency.
Yogurt can be eaten as is, or for a harder texture, place it in a sealable container. Apply wax paper or plastic wrap so that it is covering the surface of the frozen yogurt, then add the lid. This will prevent ice crystals on the surface of your yogurt.
Method 2: To make frozen yogurt without an ice cream or frozen yogurt maker, simply pour the mixture in a shallow container with a lid. Remove from the freezer every hour, and stir and scrape the yogurt with a fork. Repeat 2 more times. After 3 hours or so, your frozen yogurt should be ready to eat.
Top with sprinkles and enjoy!
