Nothing says “summer” like frozen treats. Ice cream (is anything more delectable?*), sorbet, granita, gelato, and – of course – frozen yogurt!

Like most people, I discovered frozen yogurt at the mall. I think I was about six years old when my dad bought me a raspberry frozen yogurt from Yogen Früz… and I was hooked. It was truly the perfect combination of sweet and tart. Don’t get me wrong: I love traditional, creamy, sweet ice cream. But there’s something about the *zing* of citrus or berry frozen yogurt that appeals so much to my taste buds.

So, a few weeks ago I came across this recipe for 5-minute (Healthy) Strawberry Frozen Yogurt and it inspired me to try making my own version!

Strawberry Zing! Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry Zing! Frozen Yogurt

3 cups frozen strawberries

1 cup frozen cranberries

3/4 cup plain yogurt

4 tbsp honey (use more if you prefer a sweeter frozen yogurt)

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1. Put the lemon juice, honey, and yogurt into your food processor and process until blended.

(I did mine in a blender. Warning! This recipe doesn’t contain a lot of liquid, so you’ll need to pulse/put the blender on short bouts and stir it frequently. I am not responsible for anyone’s broken blender.)

2. Add the strawberries and cranberries and process until smooth. (If you are using a blender, you can add the berries a bit at a time.)

3. Store your frozen yogurt in an air-tight container in the freezer. Freeze until serving, at least 3 hours.

4. If your frozen yogurt is too solid, microwave on low for 30 seconds or allow it to warm up a bit at room temperature.

5. Enjoy!
