There is a frozen yogurt shop dangerously close to my house. In search of a more affordable and even easier to access alternative, I broke out my neglected Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and made fro-yo for the first time. It turned out delicious, low fat, and refreshing. I used a basic fro-yo recipe from the Cuisinart manual and modified it by using chobani greek yogurt, 1% low fat milk instead of whole and adding chocolate chips.
Very Berry Chocolate Chip FroYo Recipe :
Preparation: about 15 – 20 minutes; 25 – 30 minutes chilling time; optional 2 hours to “ripen” in freezer.
Makes about eight 1/2-cup servings.
2 cups lowfat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup 1% milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 12-ounce bag frozen mixed berries, puréed and strained to remove seeds
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
Combine the yogurt, milk, and sugar in a medium mixing bowl; using a hand mixer on medium speed, mix until sugar is dissolved, about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, add the berry purée and mix until combined, about 30 – 40 seconds. Turn the machine ON, pour mixture into freezer bowl through ingredient spout and let mix until thickened, about 25 30 minutes.
