Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

I must confess:  the reason I learned to make yogurt (last week's post) was simply so that I could make frozen yogurt!! ;0) 

I like my treats!  

Are any of you with me on this?!?!

I like my treats, but I do NOT like the price I pay for the "bad" treats.  I used to eat a lot of sweets (and breads) and I paid for it:  chronic yeast infections, sluggish elimination, hormone fluctuations, post-partum stuff,...  It's not worth it!  And if you're experiencing negative effects from your "treats," then you're really not TREATing yourself!!

A treat is something that is BOTH enjoyable and nourishing/beneficial to your body!

I like to look forward to enjoying a REAL treat later in the day. 

And this is one of my favorites!  

Real yogurt with live, active cultures promotes good gut health!  Cool, sweet and slightly tangy, it is a REAL treat!

  4. Pour the mixture into the freezer bowl
  5. Let mix for about 25 minutes

This makes for a soft frozen yogurt.  If you'd like it to be harder, scoop into an airtight container and store in the freezer for at least 2 hours.   

Makes about 7 cups

Enjoy!!!  😋😊
