5-Minute Healthy Strawberry Frozen Yogurt (or replace the strawberries for another fruity taste)

  • PREP: 5 minutes

  • YIELD: 4 servings

  • 4 cups frozen strawberries

  • 3 Tablespoons agave nectar or honey

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (non-fat or full fat)

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or honey), yogurt and lemon juice to the bowl of a food processor. Process until creamy, about 5 minutes.

Serve the frozen yogurt immediately or transfer it to an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Kelly's Notes:

I prefer a more tart frozen yogurt, but you can add additional agave nectar or honey if you want a sweeter-tasting dessert.

Fresh strawberries can be used in place of frozen, however the fresh strawberries must be frozen solid.
