Total Time: 30 mins
This Healthy Coconut Frozen Yogurt is super smooth and creamy, incredibly flavorful and sweet, and secretly healthy and guilt-free!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my Cuisinart).
  • In a stand mixer bowl with whisk attachment, add the yogurt, stevia extract, butter extract, coconut extract and vanilla paste. Mix on low.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add the coconut cream concentrate and microwave at 15-second intervals, stirring between each one, until melted.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the starch, xanthan gum, baking soda and salt. Slowly add this to the mixing stand mixer and increase the speed to medium.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and mix again.
  • With the stand mixer running, slowly drizzle in the melted coconut cream concentrate.
  • Detach the whisk from the mixer and place inside the bowl leaning against the spatula. Freeze for 1 hour.
  • Reattach the whisk to the stand mixer and whisk on medium speed until the mixture is even.
  • Place the frozen ice cream maker bowl on the ice cream machine and turn the machine on. Scoop the ice cream mixture into the spinning frozen bowl and churn for ~12 minutes.
  • Scoop the fro yo into a freezer-proof container (I use a glass loaf pan) and freeze until the texture is to your liking (~2 hours for me). Scoop into serving bowls and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

**All coconut extracts vary in flavor, strength and quality.  If you are not using the brand linked here in the recipe, add 1 tsp first then give the ice cream "batter" a taste to see if you want more.  Artificial coconut extracts are MUCH stronger than natural ones, so make sure to check your bottle.  My rule of thumb is, if you don't like the smell of the extract out of the bottle, you most likely won't like whatever you're going to use it in.
