5-MINUTE HEALTHY STRAWBERRY FROZEN YOGURT
4 cups frozen strawberries
3 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey
1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or full fat)
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes.
Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 1 month.
I prefer a more tart frozen yogurt, but you can add additional agave nectar or honey if you want a sweeter-tasting dessert.
Fresh strawberries can be used in place of frozen, however the fresh strawberries must be frozen solid.
Yogurt treats are pretty popular rodent treats; my own two ratties love them! So here’s two recipes!
For simple frozen yogurt bites, empty a container (or containers) of your favorite flavor yogurt into a ziptop plastic bag. Snip off just a tiny piece from the corner, and pipe dime-to-nickel sized drops onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Place cookie sheet in freezer and allow drops to freeze til solid, then transfer into and store in a large ziptop bag.
The above are Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Bites. The blogger individually skewers blueberries and dips them into greek yogurt, then drops them onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet, then freezes, then transfers them to a baggie or tupperware. I imagine you could use the same piping-bag method as the non-berry drops to make it go a little quicker. Raspberries would probably be pretty tasty, too!
