Healthy Frozen Yoghurt – FroYo!

Healthy Frozen Yoghurt – FroYo!

Have you heard of ‘FroYo’ ?!ย FROzen YOghurt is the ultimate, guilt-free, homemade frozen treat that tastes AMAZING and is super simple to make too.

 

You can buy Frozen Yoghurt from the supermarket or from the ‘pop-up stalls’ in shopping centres, and although it has much less fat than ice-cream, some brands can be high in sugar. I personally fell in love with FroYo in Greece – there were so many shops selling the 2% Greek Yoghurt that tasted like whipped ice-cream and the toppings were amazing – granola, chocolate covered raisins & honey were my favourites! Yes, perhaps not the lowest in calories, but it satisfied my sweet tooth ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

So, carrying on from my #TryTotal recipe last week – Harissa Roasted Chicken with a Quinoa Salad, here is my Healthy FroYo recipe with Total Greek yoghurt, along with how the calories, carbs, fats and protein stats look in comparison to ice-cream & sorbet!

 

2 Scoops Contain:

  • Ice-Cream: 142 Kcal, 16g carbs, 8g fat, 3g pro.
  • Sorbet: 85 Kcal, 22g carbs, 0g fat, 0g pro.
  • 0% Total Greek: 46 Kcal, 3g carbs, 0g fat, 8g pro.
  • 2% Total Greek: 58 Kcal, 3g carbs, 2g fat, 8g pro.

Healthy Fro Yo

Ingredients

  • 200-500g 0% or 2% Fat Greek yoghurt*
  • 2 cups (260g) frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar or honey
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Put the Greek yoghurt into a food processor along with the frozen fruit, honey & lemon juice
  2. Blend until all of the ingredients are combined (you may need to scrape down the sides a few times!)
  3. Serve or freeze for 20-30 minutes for a firmer texture!

Notes

*2% fat Greek yoghurt gives a creamier and more ice-cream like texture/consistency & itโ€™s still super high in protein & low in carbs/sugar! Choose the amount of yoghurt to use .. more yoghurt makes a creamier dessert!

Once frozen completely, the FroYo is best left to thaw for around 60 minutes before scooping with an ice-cream scoop - for easy scooping, dip the ice-cream scoop into hot/boiling water first and in-between scoops!

    We recently used a similar principle for our charity bakeoff entry. We made frozen cheesecakes and substituting some of the mascarpone for 5% Total Greek gave use a much healthier version, without compromising on the creaminess! Yum!

    We also used lizi’s granola for the base so our healthy indulgence had the tastiest base! *

    Ooh the pumpkin spice version sounds delicious! I’ve got a couple of cans in from an Amazon bulk buy from last year (don’t worry about buying more than you need as they had a very long date on…..about 18months!).
    Will have to get my thinking cap on and get some pumpkin infused drinks on the blog to match!
