As the weather starts to heat up (incredibly, 90 degree days are in the weekend forecast), my cravings shift toward the cool and creamy. I love frozen yogurt and am so happy about this guilt-free version to stock in the freezer all summer long.
Sweetened with honey, a splash of Chambord lifts the berry essence while lemon juice adds brightness. Best of all, you don’t need an ice cream maker – with hardly any effort, you’ll soon be enjoying your very own homemade froyo. As for toppings, I like sliced strawberries, a sprinkle of chocolate chips, or both!
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
3 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbsp Chambord
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt
Place yogurt in an ultra-fine sieve or a strainer lined with cheesecloth and strain over a bowl in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours (or up to overnight).
Place strawberries in a food processor and puree; add strained yogurt, honey, Chambord, lemon juice, and salt. Puree until mixture is smooth. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until set, ideally overnight.
Remove from freezer and let stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
