Mango Ginger Frozen Yogurt

And a giveaway!

Sorry, I sometimes get a bit ahead of myself.  First, this awesome ice cream.  I was scouring the aisles at my grocery store, looking for something that would perfectly epitomize a delicious summer treat.  Knowing that I wanted to make ice cream (our air conditioner is broken, it is 80 degrees inside our apartment, and I cannot even *think* about turning the oven on), I wanted spring flavors that were a little bit unexpected, but still completely accessible.

When we were in Hawaii in September, we had this milkshake-type drink made with fresh ginger that was, basically, the best thing Chad and I ate the whole trip (and I think it was about $2, unlike many of our rather expensive dinners).  So I figured the combination of fresh ginger, sugar, and some creamy base would be a winner.  And then I added the mango because it wasn’t light or summery enough without a little bit of fruit.

And I did something else, which I’ve done a few times with great results: I used half regular yogurt and half greek yogurt as the base for the frozen yogurt, which gives a creamy richness that’s hard to achieve in a frozen yogurt, as opposed to ice cream.  And it’s even fat free!  No joke, I’m pretty sure this is the perfect dessert for this time of year.

Which brings us to the giveaway.  A few weeks ago, Stonyfield Farm emailed me to see if I wanted to sample their new organic greek yogurt, called Oikos.  And, even better, they agreed to send a bunch of coupons to one of my lucky readers!  So if you’re in the mood to make this recipe, or any other greek yogurt recipe, leave a comment below, and I’ll randomly select a winner!  The winner will receive 4 coupons for 5.3 oz Oikos yogurts and 1 coupon for a 16 oz container of yogurt, along with a reusable shopping bag.  The cutoff for posting comments is Sunday at noon, and I’ll post the winner on Monday morning!

    I love your site!  I was googling cinnamon pancakes and stumbled across your recipe.  Excited about trying a lot more, too!  Time to go cook some pancakes…

    Made it on Saturday and it is amazing. And SO EASY. Everyone loves it. I am so glad that I had the forethought to double the batch!

    My granddaughter made this recipe at a party she gave.  It was absolutely great.  I can’t wait until I make it.

    This sounds awesome! I am making i tonight. Do you know by chance how much frozen yogurt your recipe yields? I’ve had problems with overfilling my machine and having the frozen mix overflow.

    WOW! I just made this it was amazing! I added a bit of fresh lime juice to the mix. It gave it a nice kick. Tasted like the best soft-serve I have ever had!

    […] it sounded like a great plan. I’ve used greek yogurt in a number of recipes (especially ice cream!), but it also makes a delicious, healthy snack. And I loved the new flavors — totally […]
