Turquoise Blue Cuisinart Ice Cream Freezer.

Did I tell you I made frozen yogurt the other day with my NEW ICE CREAM MAKER (I'm still really hyped. Can you tell?). A little piece of frozen strawberry heaven. Yumm. 

 Here ya go!


Lowfat Strawberry Frozen Yogurt 

(adapted from Cuisinart recipe pamphlet) 

Prep time: 15 min
2-4 Hours for Straining 
Total Time: 2-4 hrs + 15 min + Overnight Freezing Yield: Ten 1/2-cup Servings

  • 4 cups low fat plain yogurt (I used greek), strained through a cheese cloth (I used a coffee filter) for 2-4 hours
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch Salt
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. light corn syrup 
  • 1 pound frozen strawberries
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice 

1.) In a large bowl, whisk strained yogurt with sugar, salt, vanilla, and corn syrup; reserve

2.) In a medium saucepan, heat berries, honey, and lemon juice on low for about 10 minutes, or until just softened. Strain, discarding liquid, and cool. Once the berries are cooled, stir into the yogurt/sugar mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. 

3.) Turn on 1 1/2 qt. ice cream maker; pour the mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 15 to 20 minutes. The frozen yogurt will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the frozen yogurt to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
