This frozen yogurt is possibly the most refreshing frozen treat I’ve ever made. It’s going on the list of foods to get me through the dog days of summer, and I’m already planning to bring it to some outdoor parties this weekend.
I love it when a dessert captures the triple crown of cooking: delicious, easy, and healthy. I tossed it together while the rest of dinner was cooking, let it firm in the freezer while we ate, and it was ready by the time we needed a movie-watching snack after dinner.
Lime Frozen Yogurt
- 2 limes’ zest (I used a microplane)
- 1/2 c sugar
- 1 lime’s juice
- 1 32 oz container yogurt, chilled (I used fat free organic)
In a medium bowl, rub the lime zest and sugar together until the zest is broken up and the sugar is green and fragrant. Stir in the lime juice. Stir this mixture into a container of cold yogurt. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Scoop into freezer-safe containers and chill about 1 hour before eating.
This concoction becomes an unscoopable mass when frozen overnight, so leave it on the counter for 10 or so minutes before scooping.
