Healthy Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt
I’m having a blast with my best bud, Mr. Ice Cream Maker. We’ve been hanging out a lot lately, I think I’ve made about seven batches of ice cream in the last month?
Wow. We ARE joined at the hip (or is that the freezer door?)
Something good always happens when we hang out. Like this Healthy Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt, for example.
This Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt is perfectly sweet, uber smooth and creamy, the little chunks of peaches and mango add a mouthwatering textural component, and oh yeah, it’s good for you too!
Like I said. It’s healthy. So that means we can pile a few more scoops into our bowl 😉
Healthy Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt
- 16 oz Non-Fat Peach Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 16 oz Low-Fat Mango Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 3 tbs Vodka
- 8 packets Natural Sweetener (stevia, Truvia, etc.)
- ½ tsp Natural Mango Flavor
- 3 tbs Organic Corn Starch
- ½ tsp Xanthan Gum
- ¼ tsp Baking Soda
- ¼ tsp Salt
- Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment).
- In a stand mixer bowl with whisk attachment, add the yogurts, vodka, sweetener, and mango extract. Whisk until smooth.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch, xanthan gum, baking soda, and salt. With the mixer running, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Whip until smooth.
- Place the frozen ice cream maker attachment onto the stand mixer and turn on the "stir" speed. Pour ice cream mixture into the ice cream bowl and churn until soft-serve consistency.
- Transfer the ice cream into a freezer-safe dish. Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (~3-5 hours). Serve and enjoy!
Wondering how my Healthy Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt compares to typical ice cream? Here’s the nutrition label for Ben & Jerry’s Peach Cobbler Ice Cream.
My healthy Peach Mango Frozen Yogurt has HALF the calories and DOUBLE the fun!
Mostly because you can grab a second helping but also because the recipe is good for you and you are doing your body a favor. With only 110 calories, 1g of fat and 8g of protein, that kind of equates to the ultimate guilt-free summer treat!
Observe the ULTRA creaminess. You gotta make this ASAP!
PS: Try the Homemade Cherry Garcia Fro Yo too 🙂
With love and good eats,
sorry, you lost me on this one – both of those yogurts have “evaporated cane juice” in them, which is just a fancy name for sugar. Check the ingredient lists – 50 grams of sugar in one, 54 grams in the other, ouch! better to make this with plain yogurt and add your own fruit!
I never said the recipe was sugar free! 😉
Even though the yogurts have sugar in them, the amount of sugar per serving is just a fraction of the sugar content in Ben & Jerry’s. If you want a sugar free recipe, swirl some 100% fruit jam into plain greek yogurt instead 🙂
What a great idea !
Great for the summer.
Thanks for the recipe!!
What does the vodka do? I’m 16 and was wondering if it was possible to leave it out or replace it with something?
The vodka prevents the ice cream from freezing rock hard like a brick, because alcohol does not freeze. You can leave it out if you like, you will just need to let the ice cream sit on the counter for a longer period of time to get softer. Hope you like the recipe!
I just got an ice cream maker specifically for this recipe because it looks so amazing! I’m wondering if there’s any way I could adjust the recipe to use pureed (or juiced?) mango instead of the extract. Maybe reduce it down on the stove and let it cool before I add it?
Wow, I never thought of adding mango puree to the recipe. That sounds awesome! I think a puree would work better than a juice, and you can probably skip the reducing step and just add 1-2 more tablespoons of vodka. If you don’t want to add more vodka you can definitely reduce the mango puree on low heat until it’s super thick, just remember to chill it until it is completely cold. Hopefully this adds an amazing mango flavor!
You = GENIUS! 😉
Haha Thank you!! I will give it a try this week and let you know how it goes 🙂
