Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

4 Reviews
From: EatingWell Magazine Summer 2002

An ice cream maker allows you to create your own frozen desserts with wholesome ingredients like fruit and yogurt. This one is a terrific alternative to commercial ice cream. It is fat-free and, even though it contains some sugar, it is very low in calories. When strawberries are not in season, frozen are a fine alternative.

Too much sugar plus added sugar? Lots of sugars plus added sugars in this recipe -- not a good one at all. Pros: Yogurt already has milk sugar 8 grams. OJ is all sugar. Cons: The sugars still count even if they're low. 20 grams CHO is still 80 sugar calories.

This was wonderful (strong, perfect strawberry flavor with just a hint of orange), and so easy. I didn't have orange juice, so I used 1 1/2 teaspoons frozen concentrate instead, which worked great. I did notice that the longer this was frozen, it seemed to lose a little of its strawberry flavor. The serving size, 1/2 c., was plenty.

It was wonderful. I didn't have any orange juice so I used 2 Tbs. of curacao instead. I love it.
