Pink Lemonade Frozen Yogurt
I seem to have collected several different sorbet and frozen yogurt recipes over the past few weeks. Today we enjoyed pink lemonade frozen yogurt. It’s light and refreshing with a little lemon kick. Very nice for a hot day. Unfortunately, when I made this yesterday it was a hot day, but by the time we got to eat it this afternoon the weather had changed drastically. It’s downright chilly in these parts today.
Recipe: Pink Lemonade Frozen Yogurt
32 oz. low fat vanilla yogurt
12 oz. frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed (You could just use regular lemonade for this too, and skip the drop of red food coloring for a lemonade frozen yogurt.)
1 c. half and half
1/4 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. red food coloring (You certainly don’t have to do this, but it did give it a perfect pink color.)
Combine all ingredients in large bowl and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Chill until cold, about 30 minutes. Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm enough to scoop, about 2 hours.
(I do not own an ice cream machine, so after the mixture was chilled, I transferred the whole stainless steel bowl to the freezer. After 45 minutes, I beat it with my hand held electric mixer and returned it to the freezer. I did this two or three more times, then transferred it to an airtight container until frozen. It didn’t get a really creamy texture like the chocolate frozen yogurt I made a while back, but I was more diligent with that one and mixed it more than three times. This ended up somewhere between the texture of frozen yogurt and sorbet. Still a great treat though.)
