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
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.
So which type of frozen treat is YOUR favourite? Do you like the sweetness of ice cream or the tartness of frozen yogurt?

Looks good. I am going to make some this week. Thanks for the recipe.
It really is good! I hope you enjoy it.
I have to try this recipe! And I will be careful with the blender.
This frozen yogurt looks refreshing and the color is great! Thanks for adding your flair to the #funsummerfinds linkup!
Sounds fantastic! I’m not a huge ice cream fan, but love sherbert. I even remember picking sherbert over ice cream when I was a kid. I bet I would love this yogurt!
I always pick the fruit sherbet or yogurt over super-sweet ice cream!
That looks delightful, delirious, delectable, de-looooovely. I sang that song in “Anything Goes” in high school. There were a lot of “de-” words and I’m pretty sure “delectable” was part of the list. Am I right?
Good guess, Kim, but no, it’s not a reference to “Anything Goes”!
LOOKS GREAT!!! YUM!!!! 🙂 Pinned!
Yum, this looks so refreshing!
Looks amazing! Love your dishes too!
Thanks! They’re Ralph Lauren and we got them as our wedding china.
