Absolutely Guilt-free Honey Frozen Yogurt

I am a sucker for dessert.  Shocking, I know.  My day isn't complete without a little something sweet after dinner.  It just needs to be one bite, although oftentimes it is much more.  (Oops.)  As much as I love every kind of brownie in creation, as well as any type of cookie imaginable, and absolutely everything that involves chocolate, I am always eager to find healthy desserts that completely satisfy my hankering for dessert.  Well, my friends, I found it.  It comes in the form of honey frozen yogurt.  And it is sugar free!  Most times when I hear sugar free, I instantly think, "uh oh, aspartame and other fake sugar tastes," but I promise that is not the case with this tasty treat.  Try it.  You'll like it.  I promise.

Tart and tangy with a hint of honey and a touch of sweetness marry together to make the perfect guilt-free dessert.   



Honey Frozen Yogurt:
Adapted from my Fro Yo to Die For recipe.
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla or plain almond milk
  • 1 packet of plain gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon Truvia natural sweetener
  • 30 ounces nonfat honey Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fat free half-and-half  
  1. Pour almond milk in a saucepan.  Sprinkle the gelatin on top and let stand for a minute or so.
  2. Heat milk and gelatin until smooth.
  3. Stir in Truvia and cook until dissolved.
  4. Turn off heat.
  5. Add yogurt and mix until smooth.  Do the same with the half-and-half.
  6. When everything is completely blended, pour into ice cream maker.
  7. Mix until thickened, 25-30 minutes or so.  
  8. Serve with fruit on top.  Or just eat it out of the container.  It is guilt-free--you can!
