Frozen and Delicious

We had our first frozen delight of the season over the weekend - mango frozen yogurt!

Frozen yogurt is quite simple to make.  Fruit, honey and yogurt.

Puree the fruit, add the yogurt and honey.  And a bit of vodka to keep it from getting too hard in the freezer.  Put it in the ice cream maker.

Get the ice cream maker started...

... and let it go until it is frozen, a bit like this.

Serve right away, or put in a freezer safe container and store until you are read to eat it.  It's pretty tasty - if you decide to store it in your freezer, don't tell anyone it's there.  You might not find it there when you need it. It's a good tip.

Here's the recipe.  I made a peach frozen yogurt with the same recipe (substituting peaches for the mango of course) and served them together with raspberry sauce for our Sunday Dinner dessert.  Yum!  Nothing much better than homemade ice cream... er... frozen yogurt... on a hot summer evening!

Mango Frozen Yogurt

yields 4 servings


  • 2 cups peeled, pitted, & chopped very ripe mango
  • 1 1/2 cups plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tbsp vodka, optional (this is used to keep the frozen yogurt a bit softer in the freezer)


  1. Place the chopped mango into a food processor and puree until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients and puree until well-mixed.
  2. Chill mixture in the refrigerator until cold.
  3. Freeze according to ice cream maker manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Serve immediately as soft serve, or spoon into a freezer-safe container and place in freezer until “ripened” (hardened).
