Growing up Thursday nights were always one of my favorite nights of the week. Why? My parents created an incredibly delicious tradition. A trip the local frozen yogurt shop.
I’m not going to lie to you guys, I love it! As a child I just knew I would be the ‘cool mom’ with the frozen yogurt machine in my house. It would obviously be accessible 24/7. I was pretty proud of myself for picking such a ‘healthy’ dessert to love so much.
Fast forward 15 years and frozen yogurt is increasingly popular. It is always sold as the healthy dessert. Now I know that’s pretty much bologna. Since I don’t think fat is bad anymore. All the fat free gobblygoop around froyo doesn’t sell me. The last time David and I enjoyed frozen yogurt, David decided to ask for an ingredient list. I was thinking, “DON”T DO IT!”. It’s just one of the areas I wanted ignorance to be bliss. “What is used to sweeten the frozen yogurt you might ask yourself?’ CORN SUGAR! That’s code for high fructose KILL syrup….whoops I mean high fructose corn syrup.
In my sadness I came to the kitchen and invented something so delicious you’ll never go back to a froyo bar again. It’s sugar free and just three simple ingredients. Your body will thank you and so will your tastes buds.
Homemade Raspberry Frozen Yogurt (makes 1 serving)
-½ cup whole milk greek yogurt (preferably organic)
-2 tablespoons organic maple syrup
-¼ cup organic frozen raspberries
Directions:Combine all three ingredients and STIR STIR STIR.
Once you achieve a beautiful pink color, place your yogurt in the freezer for 30 minutes. I know it’s hard to wait but it will be soooooo worth it.
Once your 30 minutes is up remove your frozen yogurt and stir it well again.
