Cherry Frozen Yogurt

Cherry Frozen Yogurt

Makes about 4 1/2 cups

This simple dessert includes fresh cherries and rich (yet nonfat) Greek yogurt—and no ice cream maker is required. Prepare it in the morning and serve at a barbecue later that day.

  • 1 pound fresh cherries, pitted
  • 2 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Combine cherries, yogurt, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a freezer-safe bowl, cover and freeze, whisking mixture vigorously every 30 minutes until just frozen throughout, 2 to 3 hours. (Whisking helps to break up the ice that forms when freezing.) Frozen yogurt is ready when it is too thick to whisk. Stir with a spatula, transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer. Frozen yogurt is best enjoyed the same day you make it.
