Pink lemonade frozen yogurt

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.)

    You MADE this?! Holy guacamole (no pun intended). I didn’t know people actually made this stuff. You’re my hero. I just wish I was your neighbour. Sigh.

    Every time I look at your blog photos I wish I was your neighbor! Especially when I get a glimpse of that crystal clear blue water…. sigh.

    This looks great! I keep hearing about making ice cream and frozen yogurt this way without a machine, and I have to try it since I don’t have an ice cream machine either.

    This looks like the perfect summery treat… adding it to my to-do list!

    Sure is pretty! Sounds like a fun summery treat. You must get an ice cream machine! They’re so much fun to play with.

    This looks so good and easy to make. Love the color-pink is always a favorite of mine!

    Oh, I thought it was sherbert at first. This sounds wonderfully refreshing and look pretty with it’s pink color. I’m impressed you’re doing this by hand. I’m way too lazy. Several years ago for Valentine’s day Joe got me an ice cream maker. He thinks it hilarious that I ask for B&N gift cards, kitchen gadgets, and coach purses. I’d ask for cash but it gets spent on the kids then. :)

    This looks great. I was wondering if you could use a low fat Half and Half and if it would work as well.

    Could this be a smoothie, instead of freezing it? I make my own yogurt and make smoothies with fruit.

    First off I LOVE anything tart/sour. I have always been a fan of sour candies etc so give me froyo and tartness–I am all about it! I tried a regular lemonade froyo which I made sure to go for seconds the first time I got it. But PINK LEMONADE…oh my I think I may have to fall over and die—I didn’t know tart froyo could get even BETTER!

    P.S. If there are any avid froyo lovers like me on the East Coast–a NEW shop is opening soon called CUPS frozen yogurt and they are giving away FREE yogurt from I think 1PM-10PM on Grand Opening day! Don’t quote me on this though– I just stumbled upon it at But I’ll be there for sure!
