Cherry Frozen Yogurt

 

Bowl of fresh Cherries

How irresistible is this bowl of glistening, ruby red, sweet tart cherries?  I love that  pop of juice in my mouth as you bite into the fruit!  I even love the splatter of messy red juice stains on my chopping board and hands while I’m pitting cherries.  We eat them by the cartloads all the time when in season that could be because I ALWAYS purchase them by the cartloads!!  For a very good reason though….. I love incorporating cherries into sweet treats like this Cherry Frozen Yogurt with Chocolate Chips!

I get to bake with them, think tarts, muffins, coffeecakes, cheesecakes and use them to make our  summertime specials…ice creams, Cherry Popsicles and this Cherry Frozen Yogurt!  Drool, slurp, drool!

Now making frozen treats does not have to be complicated at all.  Keep the ingredients simple, play around with the recipe a bit till you get what you enjoy.    An ice-cream maker is a great appliance to have for making ice creams and frozen yogurts. But not to worry, if you don’t have one, use a blender or ze good ol’ hands!!

Frozen yogurts are so fabulous.  Creamy and sweet, they make for a perfect low calorie, healthy dessert.  Let the delicious, in-season fruit do all the talking.   Add more fruit to intensify the flavor, add more yogurt to enhance the smoothness.  They are easier to make than ice creams ,not that it stops me. But more on ice creams later….

So let’s get on with the Cherry Frozen Yogurt……
