Strawberries are in season and it’s time to get that ice-cream maker out again because I’ve got a great frozen yogurt recipe for you that is healthy and delicious. We love strawberries at our house so I’m constantly thinking of ways to use strawberries as we almost always have them in the refrigerator or freezer. The idea for this yogurt came from the Food Network show “The Neely’s”. I made my own strawberry yogurt but adding kiwi and lime gave it a pop of flavor and tang.
The result is a light tasting fruity frozen yogurt that is perfect after a heavy meal. If you do decide to make this recipe make sure you taste the puree to adjust for sweetness. I like things sour but when I first tasted the puree it was really sour, so in came the addition of honey to my recipe. Honey gave it additional depth of flavor. If I would have had fresh mint or basil I would have put that into the fruit as it was macerating to give it a fresher clean taste and another layer of flavor. Enjoy strawberry season and this yummy frozen yogurt.
