  • Freeze yogurt mixture in a 1 1/2-quart ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions. Transfer yogurt mixture to a freezer container. Cover and freeze 3 to 4 hours or until firm enough to scoop (see Tip).

  • Just prior to serving, in a medium saucepan combine chopped chocolate and almond milk. Cook and stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is completely smooth. Drizzle chocolate mixture over scoops of the frozen yogurt. If desired, garnish with additional toasted coconut.

Tips

Tips: To toast coconut, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice, watching closely to avoid burning.

If yogurt is too hard to scoop, microwave on 50 percent power (medium) until soft enough to scoop, checking mixture every 30 seconds to avoid melting.
