Dave and I moved to Austin a little over 2 weeks ago. It seems like just yesterday though. Across the parking lot from out gym is a Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. I was convinced I would be stopping there everytime we drove by to check on the gym, but I just haven’t. I’m just not prepared for all the toppings. I know I’ll go overboard and then feel terrible for hours for overdoing it on the sugary stuff. So instead, I decided to make mango frozen yogurt at home. And I’m not disappointed!
Making treats, snacks and most of our meals at home helps me control the quality of ingredients. I get to decide how sweet to make things, and it helps me with the self control. I learned years ago that the easiest way to avoid over-eating certain foods is to not bring them in the house in the first place. This way I’m not constantly tempted by them. Making this two ingredient mango frozen yogurt at home helped me control the quality of ingredients in the frozen yogurt and the toppings as well. Because let’s be honest, going out for fro-yo is really all about the toppings! And that’s usually why I end up getting into a sugar coma for a few hours. I never claimed to have self control!
You can make this two ingredient frozen yogurt with any frozen fruit you have on hand. And you can choose any toppings you want! I wanted to stay with the tropical theme, so I chose coconut flakes, sliced almonds and some fresh berries to go on this mango frozen yogurt, but feel free to go a bit crazy here! Next time I might make strawberry frozen yogurt with mini chocolate chips and peanut butter! Sounds amazing right?Cool off with this simple two ingredient mango frozen yogurt tonight #eatclean… Click To Tweet
Here is a tip so you don’t destroy your food processor, let the frozen mango sit in the food processor for about 2-3 minutes before you start trying to work with it. After you give the frozen mango a few minutes, it should quickly process into what looks like little pieces of rice (start by pulsing first, just to be sure you won’t break your machine). Once the mango (or other fruit) gets to this point, it’s time to add the greek yogurt. As soon as you add the greek yogurt, you will get a smooth amazing texture of frozen yogurt in just a minute more of running the food processor.
The mango frozen yogurt is perfect to enjoy right away or you can store in the freezer in an air tight container. If you decide to freeze it, you will likely need to let it sit out for 10 minutes on the counter before enjoying, as the water in the greek yogurt tends make the frozen yogurt a bit hard.
