We like to have a small bowl of fruit before we go to bed, often while watching a re-run of Law and Order. Actually, I should say Phil loves to have a bowl of fruit, he always offers to make one for me, I decline. Then we end up sharing. 😉 Sometimes we have apples & diced walnuts, sometimes sliced bananas, or blueberries & yogurt, but these days strawberries are the best choice. With ice-cream season starting, I showed my gratitude for countless evenings of hitting his bowl of fruit by making a batch of frozen strawberry yogurt. Very little sugar added, non-fat yogurt, this is as light as a dessert can be. If you have a sweet tooth, this may not be for you. Although you can always cover it with some chocolate sauce… it won’t hurt our feelings!
STRAWBERRY FROZEN YOGURT
(from Kitchen Daily)
⅓ cup sugar
2 Tbsp orange juice
½ cup non-fat yogurt
Place berries in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Add sugar and orange juice; process for a few seconds. Add yogurt and pulse several times until blended. Transfer to a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour or overnight.
Pour the strawberry mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. Serve immediately or transfer to a storage container and let harden in the freezer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Comments: The frozen yogurt will be harder than ice-cream when kept in the freezer for several hours. We put the container in the microwave for 20 seconds and that makes it easy to scoop out our evening portion. Contrary to our normal routine, I’ve been enjoying my own bowl. 😉
