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.
Very Healthy, Very Lemony Fro-Yo
2 cups fat free Fage or other plain Greek yogurt
1 cup 2% milk or milk of choice
5 tablespoons xylitol or sugar
2 packs stevia or more sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 tablespoons lemon zest & more for garnish
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Mix all ingredients except for lemon zest in a large blender. I used Vitamix.
Pour mixture into the ice cream maker and let churn for 30 to 40 minutes.
Serve with lemon zest and crunch tiny candy hearts.
