Easy Strawberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt

As registered dietitians and personal trainers you may think that since we eat a healthy diet, exercise and love veggies that we automatically must just not like sweets. Ha! If only!

The truth is we love chocolate and frozen desserts—and have a thang for fro-yo. In college there was a fro-yo store on campus, Yogurt Jungle that had “Jungle Monday Madness” where you could get two small yogurts for the price of one. We were students on a budget and we weren’t shy with our order and usually ordered two. Yes—we each ordered two, which meant four small frozen yogurts each! And we’d end up eating those instead of a healthy dinner—every Monday night! Oy! Thank goodness we don’t do that anymore (yes, we didn’t feel so good the rest of the night) but that doesn’t mean we love fro-yo any less! 😉

Thankfully, since those days, we’ve learned to make some pretty delicious, waistline-friendly frozen desserts that we can eat and get in the very comfort of our own home—and that we love but don’t overeat! Plus, they are a lot less processed and have a lot less sugar—in fact, ours are actually pretty good for you! Remember our Skinny Strawberry Mint Ice Cream, Skinny Banana Ice Cream SandwichesDark Chocolate Banana Ice Creamand this Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream? Well those just whet our appetite to make more!
