Two Peas and Their Pod

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

We are in California right now. Last week, we attended a blogging event with Dole in Monterey and this week we are hanging out with Josh’s family. We are having a great time and Caleb has been such a good baby.

I am currently obsessed with California’s strawberries. There is a strawberry stand on almost every corner. The strawberries are freshly picked and so delicious. I made this Strawberry Frozen Yogurt before we left for California and I want to make it again with all of these yummy California berries.

Frozen yogurt is probably my second favorite treat-cookies will always be number one:) I could eat fro yo every day in the summer…and most days I do! We love going out for soft serve, but I also love making it at home. It is so easy! You only need four ingredients to make this Strawberry Frozen Yogurt-strawberries, Greek yogurt, sugar, and lemon juice. I use Chobani 0% plain yogurt and it works great! The frozen yogurt is creamy and smooth.

Find some juicy strawberries and make this Strawberry Frozen Yogurt. It is the perfect cool down treat for a hot day!

And on a side note-I went to Trader Joe’s on Monday and I am madly in love with that store. I wanted to buy one of everything, but unfortunately I don’t have that much room in my suitcase. I did buy some coconut oil, cookie spread, a cookie spread candy bar, sweet potato chips, and a few other random things. I might have to stop in one more time before we go home. I really wish we had a Trader Joe’s in Utah!

And another side note-today is Josh’s birthday! Yay! We are going out to dinner with family and making his favorite Key Lime Tart for dessert! Happy Birthday Josh! We love you!

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Yield: 1 quart

Easy strawberry frozen yogurt made with only 4 ingredients-strawberries, sugar, Greek yogurt, and lemon juice!

Ingredients:

1 pound strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and sliced
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Directions:

1. Place the sliced strawberries in large bowl with the sugar. Stir until sugar begins to dissolve. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

2. Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor. Add the yogurt and fresh lemon juice. Pulse until strawberries are smooth.

3. Chill mixture for at least 1 hour, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

    That looks and sounds amazing. I’m currently living in South Korea and Korean strawberries are the most incredibly sweet strawberries I’ve ever had … even better than the ones I had when living in CA. Truly. If you ever come to South Korea, look for strawberries!

    I found a recipe sort of like this (but add some rum to the berries!!) and it is just perfect for a hot summer night. Sweet and tart, yummy!!

  12. 12

    yum, I think hubby would love this!

  13. 13

    Oh, I need to make this! I bet it’s delicious with the greek yogurt!

    Yummy recipe BUT say no to california strawberries unless they are organic. California has stepped backwards in time and approved a pesticide (fungicide, actually) that is so harmful we might as well go back to DDT. You don’t have to believe me; google California pesticides.

    Happy Birthday Josh!!

    I adore this simple treat – quick question, I find when I make frozen yogurt or home made ice cream , its perfect right out of the ice cream maker but when I freeze it, it gets really really hard. Would you know why this happens or how to prevent it?

    I live in So Cal, so we are eating local strawberries every single week! I can’t wait to make this treat for a hot day! BTW, your pictures are just BEAUTIFUL!!

  17. 17

    This looks so incredibly delicious. I truly cannot wait to make it.

    And…Happy Birthday, Josh!

    I grew up in California–Monterrey was always our vacation place of choice. I totally wish we had a Trader Joe’s here too. I miss it! Let’s start a petition when you get home!

    Love the idea of using Greek yogurt in this. It sounds wonderful, and such a pretty color! We don’t have a TJ’s in Colorado either, I hate missing out on all the yummy stuff everyone blogs about!

    Eva @ Eva Bakes — May 9, 2012 @ 11:02 am

    I just made this recipe on Saturday. And yes, it is awesome!

  32. 32

    This frozen yogurt sounds so perfect… and easy! Happy birthday to Josh! :) Also… I’m glad I’m not the only one missing out on TJ’s. The closest is well over an hour away which isn’t ideal at all.

    Happy Birthday Josh! If you’re anywhere near the ranch, give us a holler and come by!

    Which ice cream maker do you use?

  34. 34
