Lemon Frozen Yogurt

Lemons are practically calling your name in the grocery store aisle—you’ve noticed, right? Pick some up to make lemon curd (although no one will mind if you buy it in the jar) and whip together this frozen yogurt for dessert. Your ice cream maker need not sit on a shelf for the winter. Cold desserts are a perfect ending to a meal any time of the year. Feel free to change the proportions of yogurt and lemon curd. I found some recipes with twice as much yogurt as curd, though I chose to use a cup of each to amp up the lemon flavor. Are you partial to Greek yogurt? Try it and tell yourself that the extra protein makes this a healthy dessert. However you explain it, know that this dessert is as easy as it gets. Plan ahead and make the yogurt & curd mixture then let it chill overnight. Churn it the next day in your ice cream maker and dessert is ready a few hours later.  Toss a few raspberries in the bowl and call this your Valentine’s dessert!

Ingredients:
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup lemon curd

Directions:
Fold the lemon curd and yogurt together in a bowl until combined. Chill overnight.

The next morning process the mixture in your ice cream maker for 20-25 minutes. I like this yogurt even better after it is frozen for about 4-6 hours.

      I agree, Karen, now that I see how easy this is to make I think I’ll whip up some other flavors– strawberry sounds good at the moment plus I have two pints of strawberries in the kitchen. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    This is way too simple Holly. As in I’ll have the ingredients together momentarily if I’m lucky enough to have enough yogurt.

    Pretty pic…you’ve come a LONG way baby!

    See you tomorrow; let’s hope we just get rain or a sprinkling of snow; I so need some time away from ordinary right now and some fun with the girls!

      Yes, Barb, WAY too easy– that is why it’s a perfect recipe for me!
      Thanks for the compliment on the photo…sometimes they work out well for me and other days it looks like my 4 year old took it. It’s a long learning process.
      See you tomorrow, it will be a great afternoon!

    Oh yum. Another wonderful treat that I can have handy to quench my lemon craving! This would be easy to make. Perhaps I will throw some of this together this weekend while my mom is visiting. :)

    Hi there. The current Food on Friday on Carole’s Chatter is collecting links to posts about ice cream and sorbets – or anything similar like gelato. I do hope you link this in. This is the link . Please do check out some of the other links – there are a lot of good ones already. Have a great week.
