frozen yogurt

Lighter than ice cream, but just as delicious: Frozen Yogurt or FroYo. In most countries, it can be bought just like ice cream for so many years now, but in this city it has, I think, taken recognition just a few years back. The nearest shop from our place offering frozen yogurt closed down and since we have an ice cream maker, I’ve decided to try making them at home. The kids love all yogurt flavors and when topped with candy sprinkles or m&m’s they’d finish a whole serving. Taking inspiration from‘s many flavors and toppings, my kids can choose which flavor to have.

Yogofactory, a leading frozen yogurt franchise in New Jersey and surrounding areas, has a lot of ideas, combining flavors from Hershey’s kisses to Reese, from Dulce de Leche to Cheesecake, from English Toffee to Tahitian Bean. Then the toppings are of endless possibilities. True, yogurt has less calories but with toppings ranging from crushed oreo cookies, m&m minis, truffles, chocolate chips the purpose is defeated…well, it doesn’t always have to have toppings so I don’t think it will hurt. Of course, ours are just remakes, would love to visit one of their many stores should we get the chance to be somewhere near New Jersey.

So to share one of our favorites, here’s an easy recipe that your kids will love.

2 tablespoons lemon juice
2/3 cups  honey
1 teaspoon lemon rind (grind)

2 cups of plain yogurt
2 egg whites

To make this simple as could be, combine the first 3 ingredients in stainless steel saucepan over medium heat and stir  well. You can add a pinch of salt then let the mixture cool.

When cooled, combine mixture with yogurt and chill this for 2 hours. Afterwards, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, slowly put in the yogurt mixture and chill until when you’d like to have your frozen yogurt. Top with your favorite fruits.

Honey and lemon, though I use them mostly for my face (lols) goes well with yogurt, not to mention both are healthy additions!
