Raspberry Mango Frozen Yogurt with Graham Cracker Crumble

Ice-cream on a hot summer day… Nothing really compares. If you’re looking to make that ice cream with a bit less fat, this recipe is especially for you! Fro-Yo style.

It’s packed with protein, calcium, fiber and antioxidants.

First add 2 cups of frozen fruit (1 cup raspberries and 1 cup mangoes) to a high-powered blender.

Then you’ll add in the 1 cup of vanilla greek yogurt, and 1 cup of almond milk (or any reduced fat milk you have).

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and xanthan gum into the mix then blend until smooth. If you have an ice-cream maker you’ll place the frozen yogurt mix and allow to churn for about 15 minutes or after it appears to hold shape. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker place the contents in the freezer for 2 hours and stir occasionally.

The frozen yogurt should be thick. It won’t be as creamy as traditional ice cream. But that’s sort of the point ūüôā

For the fun mix-ins, I added in 4 sheets of graham crackers into crumbled chunks, plus 1/3 of a cup of mini dark chocolate chips for the other half of the batch.

*Freezer Method: Add in your mix-ins (graham cracker, chocolate chip, etc.) before you freeze the yogurt*

I LOVE gelato but if I want something with a few extra toppings… frozen yogurt is a perfect base for all¬†the mix-ins. It allows you to add all your favorite nuts and candies and balance the calories a bit more.

Key Lime Kiwi Smoothie [Greek Yogurt]

Smoothies are designed to taste like pie. I can’t be the only person who thinks this way?!¬†The glory of turning pies into a quick breakfast means less work, and a perfect opportunity to nourish your body with all the good stuff!

KeyLimeKiwiYogurt

I am¬†a sucker for sneaking in¬†nutrient dense foods into recipes! (Is that not obvious?) So slice into that perfectly ripe¬†avocado that you have. Just add half; add the whole thing (flesh only) if you don’t want to bother with the almond butter.

Avocado

The next best thing to this smoothie is actually to throw in some rolled oats for a quick overnight oatmeal: I did just 1/4 cup rolled oats; for a thicker oatmeal I’d go for a bit more.

Have your pie… and eat it too!

I have an {Avocado Pie} recipe. I’ll be posting this next month ..It doesn’t taste like an avocado either!

Notes on products:

  • Siggi's¬†is the non-fat greek yogurt I like to use in all of my recipes, and tastes perfect on it's own. Try this one out if you like a thicker, more strained style similar to Fage [Fa-yeh].
