Cherry and Dark Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

I have been wanting to make frozen yogurt at home for years, but I don’t have an ice cream maker. It took a little work to figure out how to make it work, but I did it.

This frozen yogurt is flavoured with dark chocolate and sweet cherries. I sweetened the yogurt with honey and vanilla extract.

I used a hand mixer to churn the frozen yogurt, but you could use a spoon or spatula.

This recipe was the perfect sweet treat, but a little but healthier then traditional ice cream.

Have you ever made frozen yogurt?

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 500 ml 2% Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Honey (more or less to taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup Sweet Cherries, chopped

Directions:

Mix yogurt, honey and vanilla extract. Pour into a metal loaf or cake pan, freeze for 20-30 minutes.

Using a hand mixer or spoon churn the semi frozen ice cream, return the mixture to the freezer for 15 minutes. Repeat the process of freezing and churning until the mixture is the consistency of soft serve.

Mix in the chocolate and cherries and freeze for another hour until firm.

You may need to let the frozen yogurt sit on the counter for 10 minutes before scooping.
