Lowfat Frozen Yogurt Recipe

Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than homemade ice cream. However, those who are struggling to look good in that bikini are not inclined to indulge since homemade ice cream is so high in fat and calories. This Four-Ingredient Fruity Frozen Yogurt tastes rich and decadent, but has only 2 grams of fat and 149 calories in a 1/2 cup serving. It’s also full of delicious fresh summer fruit.

Those lucky enough to own an automatic ice cream machine can make this delicious frozen concoction in 20-30 minutes. However, it can also be made by freezing the mixture in a shallow baking dish and beating it with a heavy-duty mixer. Both methods produce good results, so there’s no excuse to forego this guilt-free summer treat.

Since the limeade concentrate is frozen, it helps chill the mixture quickly. It will be surprising how fast this frozen yogurt goes together, and even more surprising how good it tastes.

16 1/2 cup Servings

4 cups fresh summer fruit, (peaches, nectarines, berries)
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 ounces frozen limeade concentrate, (1/2 of a 12 ounce can)
3 cups plain lowfat yogurt
  1. Cut the fruit in small pieces and toss with the sugar and limeade concentrate.

  2. Whisk in the yogurt.

  3. Ice Cream Machine Method: Pour half into each of two automatic ice cream makers or 1 large 2 quart ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer's directions.

  4. Freezer Method: Whisk ingredients together until well mixed and pour into a 9 x 13" glass dish.

  5. Cover tightly with several layers of plastic wrap and place in the freezer.

  6. When frozen, place in a mixing bowl and whip until light.

  7. Both Methods: Transfer the frozen mixture to an airtight container and freeze until serving time.
