Orange-Honey Frozen Yogurt

With all the great feedback we've gotten on our hand-shaken ice cream reci-pea, we had to do a fro-yo spin-off!

Here's a wholesome, homemade version of soft-serve for the kids to enjoy this summer, and you won't need an ice cream machine to make it! Using ice, salt and some elbow grease (with your help, of course!), kids can make their own healthy frozen treats this summer. Makes 2-3 servings. Serve with any kind of fresh fruit.

Orange-Honey Fro Yo

  • 1 cup plain yogurt,
    Greek yogurt preferred (non-fat, low fat, or full fat)
  • 2 TBL sugar
  • 1 TBL honey
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp orange zest
  • 1 TBL orange juice
  • 2 ice-trays of ice
  • 1/3 cup salt

In a blender or food processor, combine the yogurt, sugar, honey, vanilla, orange zest and orange juice. Blend until smooth.

Place 1 cup of the yogurt mixture in a 1 quart zip-top bag, squeeze most of the air out and seal the bag. Add about 2 trays of ice cubes to a 1 gallon zip-top bag (about 1/3 full) then add 6 tablespoons of salt. Place the small bag of yogurt inside the large bag of salt and ice, squeeze most of the air out and zip the large bag closed.

Wrap in a kitchen towel and hand to a child to shake and squish for about 7 minutes until the yogurt mixture firms up. The more you shake, the smoother the finished frozen yogurt will be. Retrieve the small bag of now frozen yogurt, snip off a corner of the bag, and squeeze out your fro-yo! Top with any fresh fruit.
