Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
After TJ and I went strawberry picking, my brain started filling with ideas of what to make with them. I kept coming back to frozen yogurt, surely a little influenced by the increasing temperatures outside. I’ve never tried making my own frozen yogurt before, and I was a little skeptical that it would taste as good as “froyo” from a shop.

To my excitement, it tasted even better! The freshness of the strawberries gives it a fantastic sweetness, and the texture was smooth and perfectly ice cream-like. This recipe is definitely a winner, and I have a feeling we’ll be making it multiple times throughout the summer.

Spoiler alert: we can just go ahead and call this “frozen treat week”, because I’ll be sharing another frozen dessert recipe on Friday. Exciting!
