If you crave ice cream in the hot summer months, but want to opt for something healthier, frozen yogurt is the answer. This yummy chocolate frozen yogurt can be made in any ice cream or frozen yogurt maker.
Things You'll Need
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 cup unflavored gelatin
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
Place two cups of yogurt into a yogurt cheese maker and place it in the refrigerator for 3 hours. If you do not have a yogurt cheese maker, you can line a colander with cheese cloth and place the yogurt in the colander instead. This removes liquid from the yogurt.
In a sauce pan combine milk, sugar, salt and gelatin. Mix well. Place in a sauce pan and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Allow this to cool.
Add the cocoa powder to the sauce pan and mix well. Add the strained yogurt from step 1. Discard the liquid that has separated from the yogurt.
Place the yogurt mixture in your ice cream or frozen yogurt maker for 20 to 40 minutes depending on the machine. I use a Cuisinart frozen yogurt maker and it takes 20 minutes.
Tips & Warnings
- I use raw cocoa powder and brown sugar because they are healthier.
- As a variation 1/4 cup chocolate syrup can be added.
