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 lemon 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. One to one proportions were successful for me. 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 and curd mixture then let it chill overnight. Churn the lemon frozen yogurt the next day in your ice cream maker and dessert is ready a few hours later.
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 cup lemon curd
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.
Serve right away or chill. I like this yogurt even better after it is frozen for about 4-6 hours.
You may use plain yogurt or Greek yogurt, both work well!
