Paleo Frozen Yogurt

Posted on June 8, 2015

Move over Pinkberry – there is a new frozen treat in town!

I think most of us associate the warmer months with cold desserts of some sort. As kids, almost every summer was filled with frozen Popsicle, or trips to Dairy Queen as a special treat and a quick way to cool off. Personally, there is nothing I like more than frozen yogurt. There is something about the tangy, creamy and cool treat that is just heaven. Unfortunately, in spite of the fresh fruit I have piled on top of my frozen indulgence, it isn’t very good for me. Loaded with dairy and sugar, it is a headache and a stomach ache waiting to happen. Whenever I Google recipes for “paleo ice cream” or “paleo frozen yogurt” – all I come up with are recipes that use some form of coconut. Not SUPER helpful if you are allergic or sensitive to coconut.

A few weeks ago I had made the avocado chocolate mousse that kept popping up on Pinterest, and it got me thinking. Could I possibly make a frozen yogurt out of avocado? I wanted to recreate something tart and creamy, so I didin’t want it overly sweet. After a few experiments, I think I hit a home run.

The final product is avocado, frozen berries, maple syrup, vanilla and (optional) probiotic powder. What is great is that you can eat this immediately for a frozen yogurt, or put it in the freezer for an ice-cream. I even put this in a mason jar with berries and brought it to work for breakfast one day – and it was AMAZING! 

Give it a try, and let me know what you think!

**Full disclosure, I adapted this from the chocolate pudding recipe a friend gave me. She doesn’t remember what website she found it on originally – but if we figure it out, partial credit goes to them for the inspiration!
