A few weeks ago my friend posted a photo of her delicious looking frozen yogurt. I don’t remember if I’ve ever tried frozen yogurt before going vegan. If I did I probably didn’t like it much because I really don’t remember eating the stuff. But like I said, my friend’s frozen yogurt looked good and it got me wondering. I’ve never heard of a vegan version so I just went ahead and made my own. I did a little Googling and found that everyone pretty much used the same method. Frozen fruit combined with your choice of vegan yogurt whirled around in the food processor and then frozen until firm.
I used 1 small frozen banana (I cut it into chunks prior to freezing) and Strawberry Amande Cultured Almond Milk Yogurt. Some people added sweetener to theirs, but I thought mine was just fine without. Of course I found that out after adding agave resulting in an overly sweet frozen yogurt. Anyway, I let my frozen yogurt freeze overnight and then left it sitting on the counter for a few minutes until it softened enough to scoop out of the mason jar. For toppings I went with fresh blueberries, unsweetened coconut, and slivered almonds. It was quite delicious. I so wish I could make a coffee/mocha version. But this strawberry banana version will keep me content until then!
