Summertime means…ice cream! Or for those a little more health conscious, frozen yogurt! The recent warm weather put me in the mood to whip up my first batch of frozen treats for the summer. I love Greek yogurt and currently use it in everything. So why not try it frozen? This cool concoction is packed with protein for a truly nutritious and heat beating experience.
Honey Almond Greek Frozen Yogurt
1 32 oz container of vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 C 2% or skim milk
1/2 C sugar
1/2 TBSP almond extract
1 TBSP honey
1 C honey roasted sliced almonds
In a large bowl, add greek yogurt, milk and sugar. Stir until blended. Add honey and almond extract. Stir until mixed in. Cover and place in refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight.
In a food processor, pulse almonds until roughly chopped. Set aside.
Add yogurt mixture to ice cream maker. Churn on low for about 15 minutes. With about five minutes left, add almonds.
Either place in container to freeze for later use (which will produce a harder consistency) or serve it up soft serve right out of the bowl.
