homemade raspberry vanilla frozen yogurt

Creamy probiotic-rich yogurt is combined with nutrient-dense egg yolks, sweet honey, and pure vanilla for a nourishing treat that everyone can be involved in making.  While I don’t recommend most single-use kitchen appliances, an ice cream maker is something I value for all the fun and deliciousness of ice cream without the refined sugar.  Making ice cream is so easy that it’s sure to become a lovely tradition in your home.

Recipe Notes

Leftovers are not as good as eating homemade frozen yogurt fresh. If needed, store extra ice cream in a Pyrex or plastic storage container with a lid, in the fridge. Allow to sit out to soften for 10-15 minutes prior to scooping out of the container. Homemade ice cream does not contain the gums or additives (antifreeze!) that keep it from freezing solid.

Other options for leftover frozen yogurt: Freeze in popsicle molds! This is a great solution to the too-hard ice cream. For adults who consume alcohol, 1 ounce vodka or whiskey can be stirred into the leftover frozen yogurt. The alcohol won't freeze in the freezer, and it will preserve the soft consistency of frozen yogurt.
