Very Healthy, Very Lemony Fro-Yo

P1050011

It has been as warm as summer here in San Francisco this week.  After school today, Audrey picked some lemons from our tree and asked me to make her a lemon fro-yo.  She would have to write two papers and prepare for a test for tomorrow.  A special treat was definitely called for. 

This fro-yo is incredibly creamy and refreshing. Not only is it guiltless to indulge, it is actually good for you.  For once, you CAN have your cake and eat it too. Audrey and I finished the entire tub. I had to make a second batch so Peter and Angela could also have some after dinner.
