Mock Frozen Yogurt

High Five Recipes 2

Can I now offer you the perfect little side dish to go with your Taco Corn Fritters?  This Mock Frozen Yogurt is so very easy and really, really tasty too.

I have no idea why I felt the need to say that.  It really is sort of a “duh” statement because if I didn’t feel like it was tasty, would I actually post the recipe on my blog?  How would that look…”I don’t really like eating this dish, but I thought I’d post it for you anyway so you could be grossed-out along with me.  Feel free to stink up your kitchen and tell your kids that the Heavenly Homemaker made you do it.  Be sure to come back and share your gag stories.”  I would never do that.  And yet I still felt the need to point out that the recipe tastes good.  Duh.

So yeah, this recipe is really tasty!  You should try it sometime!  Anyway…

My favorite thing about this recipe is that it works great as a side dish or snack, but is also sweet enough to be a dessert.  And in case I failed to mention it, this Mock Frozen Yogurt is really quite tasty.  :)

Mock Frozen Yogurt

3 cups any varieties of frozen fruit (I used blueberries, peaches and strawberries)
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup grade B real maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place frozen fruit in a food processor.

Add plain yogurt, vanilla and maple syrup.

Blend until all ingredients are well mixed.  Easy as that!

Serve right away as a side dish, snack or dessert!  I LOVE it when desserts are this healthy!!

And there you go.  Come back for more tasty (and gluten free!) recipes all week long!

What are your favorite frozen fruits to use in treats??

    I have made something simular, my kids loved it. BUT…..I put them in ice cube trays, stuck a toothpick in and called them smoothie pops. We brought them camping last year and all the kids camping even not in our site loved them.

    I make smoothie pops for my kids all of the time (even winter). You could make this even healthier by adding in some spinach or powdered greens (which will be hidden by the taste of the fruit and sweetener), add some protein powder (whey or vegan), and use some stevia to cut down on the maple syrup. I make mine in a blender. I freeze mine in silicone molds that keep all of the juice in the bottom as they melt while being eaten for the kids to drink when done. I found them on Amazon.

    If you freeze this will it be like frozen yogurt or will it be hard as a rock?

    What makes frozen yogurt have a soft texture?

    It would become hard if you freeze it like this. If you want soft frozen yogurt, you’d need to make it in an ice cream machine with ice and rock salt.

    This is exactly the recipe I use for breakfast smoothies, except that I add milk! I never thought of skipping the milk and using it for dessert! I like your tea cups for dessert dishes, too – very economical.
