Have you heard of ‘FroYo’ ?! 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 😉
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:

Healthy Fro Yo
- 200-500g 0% or 2% Fat Greek yoghurt*
- 2 cups (260g) frozen berries
- 1 tbsp agave nectar or honey
- 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- Put the Greek yoghurt into a food processor along with the frozen fruit, honey & lemon juice
- Blend until all of the ingredients are combined (you may need to scrape down the sides a few times!)
- Serve or freeze for 20-30 minutes for a firmer texture!
*2% fat Greek yoghurt gives a creamier and more ice-cream like texture/consistency & it’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!
The nutritional stats provided are per 1/5 of the FroYo (0% yoghurt, fruit & sweetener!)
