Frozen Confections

Cherry Frozen Yogurt
Tonight, Mr. Nature made us one of our favorite desserts. Usually, we make about the same recipe in the summer with bluebeberries for Amilia. For her, we put sticks in to make popsicles.
This is a dessert you can eat without guilt, and with an assurance that you are still eating for health!
2 cups nonfat or whole milk UNFLAVORED plain yogurt
3/4 cup frozen cherries (or other fresh or frozen fruit) NOTE: do not substitute any canned or prepared fruits because you will lose the simplicity and nutritional value!
1 TBSP RAW honey (not the processed, filtered kind!) Raw honey gives actual food value that processed honey is lacking. If you do not have raw honey, the next best substitute is processed honey.
Blend in food processor, blender wand, Magic Bullet, Bella Cucina Rocket, or similar blender until smooth. If using cherries or blueberries, you will still see bits of fruit skin, and this is okay. If using berries, you will of course have seeds still visible.
Place in freezing dish, such as freezer-safe Corning ware or stainless steel cylindrical container until frozen.
Scoop into dessert dish and ENJOY!

YUM! I often mix yogurt with other things, but haven't frozen it.

Yummmm... sounds delicious. I have to eat nonfat plain yogurt everyday(Dr.ordered), so I am always looking for new ways to flavor it up :)

So I was inspired! Yesterday, I made a batch of frozen yogurt. Since I didn't have cherries, I used a combination of raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Instead of pureeing it, I chopped the fruit up pretty small and stirred it in.
Thanks for the recipe!
