Chocolate frozen yogurt without an ice cream machine
Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
After discovering that it’s possible to make ice cream without an ice cream maker, I’ve been seeing all these great recipes for ice cream all over the place. I figured if I could do it with ice cream, why not frozen yogurt? Chocolate is a good place to start around here. None of us is going to say no to something chocolaty, so I found this recipe and went to town.
Truly, it is so easy to do this. Why did I not know it before? I keep imagining all the flavor combinations I can create. I think this one would be great with candy pieces or some chopped cherries. Or what about a swirl of marshmallow fluff? Or banana pieces and chopped walnuts? See what I mean?
If you don’t have an ice cream machine, head to David Lebovitz‘s blog to get excellent instructions on how to make it using your hand mixer instead.
Recipe: Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
3/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 can (12 oz.) fat-free evaporated milk
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. plain lowfat yogurt (I used lowfat vanilla yogurt.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Stir together cornstarch and sugar in a saucepan. Stir in evaporated milk and chocolate chips. Cook over medium heat until chocolate is melted and mixture has thickened slightly. Stir constantly to prevent burning.
Remove from heat and add yogurt and vanilla. Refrigerate until chilled.
Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. (Or follow the link above to make it without an ice cream maker, like I did.)
