Citrus Frozen Yogurt

Next up in the frozen yogurt obsession is a citrus version. Same as usual, creamy and delicious, but with the zest and citrus flavor, this one feels lighter than it’s chocolate and coconut cousins. So that makes it easier to eat more of it! :) Hehe just kidding. But seriously.


A few notes-

— I love the tang that the yogurt gives, so I didn’t want to sweeten it too much. Taste your mix before freezing- adjust sweetness as necessary.

— You can buy coconut cream or ‘make’ your own. You make it by refrigerating a can of coconut milk. When refrigerated, the cream will rise to the top and the water will be on the bottom. Open the can without shaking it, scoop the cream off the top and save the water for smoothies.

— To get the frozen yogurt consistency without an ice cream maker, you need to pull it out of the freezer to stir a few times. There is no right consistency, though. You can eat it as soft serve or wait until it’s completely frozen. It just depends on what you like! I recommend eating it at about the 3 hour mark. With about 10 minutes to soften, this is the perfect texture for me! So when I make this to serve, I make it about 3 hours before dessert. If you do wait until it’s frozen, it’ll need to thaw before serving or it’ll be icy.
