This frozen-yogurty smoothie tastes just like a healthy neapolitan ice cream! It only takes a couple minutes to blend up & is awesome for breakfast / a midday sweet tooth / or a healthy dessert.

2 cups frozen strawberries

1/2 cup apple juice

Blend up the yogurt, frozen strawberries, & apple juice in a Nutribullet (or equivalent) until thick & creamy

Top with carob syrup

Carob Frozen Yogurt

Made with 5 ingredients!

On weekends like this past one, where temperatures were over 100 degrees, you need an abundance of cold treats on hand.  I’m a huge frozen yogurt fan, but usually not a fan of the options available at my local stores.  They often contain a lot of gums, processed sugars, & other ingredients difficult for someone with a sensitive digestion system.  The solution: 5 Ingredient Carob Frozen Yogurt!  

There is no ice cream maker required.  The prep only takes about 5 minutes!

Recipe makes about 2 servings

Ingredients: 

2 cups nonfat plain greek yogurt 

1/4 cup roasted carob powder (I use Australian Carob Company)

1/3 cup coconut sugar

around 3/4 of a small avocado

2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Blend up all of your ingredients in a food processor until smooth

Transfer the mixture to a freezer-safe pan (around 9×9) & spread evenly

Cover with plastic wrap

Freeze for 1 hour

Remove from the freezer & evenly stir with a fork

Repeat for 3 additional hours

Let freeze for an additional couple of hours for a more solid consistency

Enjoy!
