Cherry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt

Hi Everyone,

I had a recipe I was so excited to share with you today, but it will have to wait!  I made something else that was so amazing that I just can’t stand it!!  I have no patience to wait to share it with you, so I am posting it today.

This is my Cherry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt.  It is creamy, soft, not hard and tastes out of this world.  The best part?  No ice cream maker needed!  I put this all together in minutes, threw it in the freezer and in about an hour I got this soft and delicious ice cream.

Besides it’s creamy goodness, it’s LOW calorie!  I used 1 cup Chobani plain Greek Yogurt, 5 cherries, 1 tsp. of  mini chocolate chips and 3 drops of vanilla stevia.  In comparison to frozen yogurt that you get at the store, the serving size is a 1/2 cup, mine is one cup!  The protein is 22 grams and the fat is 1.4 grams due to the chocolate chips.  I am so happy with this I could just scream!  I scream, you scream, we all scream for healthy frozen yogurt!  So geeky I know, but I’m so darn excited!  Finally an easy frozen yogurt!

Whats nice is you can make a one person serving of any flavor you desire.  Not like using an ice cream maker where you normally have to make a pint or quart, you can make as much of any kind of frozen yogurt you desire.  What I did, when I was getting ready to serve dinner, in a freezer safe container, I added all my ingredients and popped in the freezer, that’s it.  By the time I relax and clean-up, my frozen yogurt is ready.  I am so loving this!!!  Just think of all the flavors you could make?  The possibilities are endless!!  You can even use your favorite flavored frozen yogurt instead of plain!!

If I were you, I’d make an investment in yogurt because I”m going to be buying it more then I do now and that’s crazy!!  I got the idea from Gina from Running to the Kitchen.  She made a wonderful frozen peach yogurt and I used her idea and went from there.  You can check out her way of doing it here.

  4. I eat so much greek yogurt I can’t believe I’ve never thought to do anything like this! It really is the perfect summer treat!

    This looks delicious! Do you think it would work with regular, non-fat yogurt? I have a large container of the Dannon plain, and would love to try it with that.

    • Yes, It will work with regular and non-fat yogurt. Try it, I’m sure you will love it! Remember after an hour of freezing it, mash it with a spoon until all the yogurt pieces are broken up. The yogurt will soften up while mashing. If you feel the yogurt is to soft, just place it back in the freezer for a few minutes. Enjoy!!!

  6. Yum this looks awesome! So simple too which I love
