mango-strawberrry frozen yogurt

easy recipe home-made healthy low-fat frozen yogurt mango strawberry
The Cuisinart® Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt maker is quite a handy apparatus. Especially now that warmer days are here, I try to make small batches of wholesome "healthy" stuff with it. That's how this mango-strawberry frozen yogurt happened.

I had 2 ripe juicy mangoes to be used up. (I was sick, else mangoes would not have had a chance to sit for long and wait to be used up). We had some non-fat strawberry yogurt handy. It takes about 20 minutes to get it ready using the super-duper Cuisinart® frozen yogurt maker. The basic recipe came with the book, I just improvised a bit.

easy recipe home-made healthy low-fat frozen yogurt mango strawberryIngredients:
½ cup 2% milk
¼ cup sugar
2 cups strawberry yogurt
2 ripe mangoes, pulp only

Throw them all together in the machine and let it go for 20 minutes and voila! yummy guilt-free health-friendly frozen yogurt is ready. This makes about eight ½ cup servings (but who has ½ cup servings at a time, right?)

Ordinarily, I wouldn't dream of pairing two strong flavors like strawberry and mango, but, this time, I wanted to make mango flavored dessert, and the recipe called for yogurt but we only had strawberry yogurt... and what a wonderful stroke of serendipity that was!

Plus, our little strawberry patch in the backyard is yielding alright, and I managed to throw in a few fresh strawberries as well, and, save one for garnish for the picture!

Fortunately Ana doesn't know the difference between full fat rich ice cream and this leaner version of frozen yogurt. She loved this mango strawberry frozen yogurt and I had to ration it to make sure she doesn't overindulge.

The mango was the stronger of the flavors we could taste right away, and it didn't clash with the pleasant strawberry at all. All in all a good experimental flavor that I would certainly repeat, hopefully soon...

    All the more reason for me, to buy a Cuisinart ice cream maker! :) That frozen yogurt with homegrown organic fruits looks so tempting!
