I made the BEST frozen yogurt in our Vita-Mix blender tonight. I tell people all the time how awesome the Vitamix is, but I really don’t think most people really “get it” because they only look at it as a smoothie machine and forget that it is also able to cook soup and freeze ice cream and frozen yogurt!
Here is what I did: Add 1 pound frozen strawberries, 1 cup vanilla yogurt (you can use greek yogurt but it has a texture I do not like in this recipe so try it at your own risk), and 1/8 cup Splenda. All you do is put everything in the vita-mix and blend until it is thick and smooth. The Vitamix blends the berries so quickly that as they are chopped and stirred they freeze the yoghurt making a delicious sweet creamy frozen yogurt.
I’m planning to make this with frozen pineapple and coconut soon! This is an awesome healthy recipe the entire family (including the kids) LOVED! High in protein and fresh fruit makes it a great way to cap off the day! For me losing weight is not easy, and I am an ice cream LOVER so this recipe is a BIG winner in my house. I know the Vita-Mix is expensive and that a lot of people have a difficult time justifying the expense but it has become an appliance I use nearly every day and I do not regret for one second my purchase.
