Mango-Lime Frozen Yogurt

June 28, 2012

One of my favourite ways to “beat the heat” is by enjoying some frozen yogurt. By far my favourite is this Mango-Lime Frozen Yogurt, which I have been making for several years, and always impresses guests despite it being very simple to prepare.

Amazingly, there are only four ingredients, and since I use agave nectar to sweeten it, this delicious treat is also sugar-free (please read a recent post to find out why this is so important)! Although I use an ice cream maker, you can just as easily make this using a blender.

What’s you’re favourite way to “beat the heat”?!

Ingredients:

2 mangos, peeled and chopped

juice of 1 lime

1/4 – 1/2 cup agave nectar (or, you can use 3/4 cup granulated sugar)

1 and 1/2 cups Greek plain yogurt – my favourite is PC’s 0% Greek Plain Yogurt (or, you can use sour cream as per the original recipe, which can be found in “125 Best Ice Cream Recipes” by Marilyn Linton and Tanya Linton)

Directions (if using an ice cream maker):

1. In a food processor or blender, puree mango, lime juice and agave nectar (or sugar) until smooth.

2. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in yogurt (or sour cream). Cover and refrigerate until completely cold or overnight. (When I want to reduce the amount of time it takes to get the mixture “completely cold”, I put it in the freezer for a while, but make sure it doesn’t actually freeze!)

3. Transfer to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Directions (if NOT using an ice cream maker):

1. Place chopped mangos in an airtight container and freeze.

2. Place frozen mango, lime juice, agave nectar (or sugar), and yogurt (or sour cream) in a blender and process until smooth. You can either enjoy the frozen yogurt immediately, or return the mixture to the airtight container from step 2 and place in freezer for a while until desired consistency is achieved.

I’m curious to know what you think if/when you try this recipe, so please leave me a comment when you get a chance!
