5 Minute Frozen Yogurt

Sometimes you just need a little sweet treat, and what can be better than something with rainbow sprinkles on it? This fro-yo is a lifesaver when I'm trying to maintain a clean and healthy diet, but still have some cravings for something sweet. It has no added processed sugar, is ready in 5 minutes, and doesn't require any freezing time or fancy ice cream maker.
5 Minute Frozen Yogurt- Serves 1
Equipment:
  • ​Food processor or high powered blender (Vitamix)
Ingredients:
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 5 frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup plain organic full fat* Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 Tbs vanilla extract
  • Your favorite toppings... I like to use shaved coconut, raw cacao nibs, and rainbow sprinkles.
*Don't be afraid to eat full fat yogurt! It is really healthy for you, and actually helps to burn body fat. But make sure you buy organic pasture raised so that those healthy fats are coming from good natural sources and happy cows :)
Directions:
  1. Place the yogurt, fruit, and vanilla in the food processor. It is important that you use a food processor or high powered blender, not a standard blender, or else there won't be enough liquid to blend the ingredients. We want it to be nice and thick so the less liquid the better! Also make sure the fruit is cut into smaller chunks and evenly distributed in the container before blending.
  2. Blend until smooth, stopping to push fruit around evenly when needed. Mine was blended in about 30 seconds.
  3. ​Now top with your favorite toppings! Enjoy right away before it starts to melt!
You may also substitute the strawberries for other sweet frozen fruits, but you need the banana. Let me know what sort of concoctions you come up with in the comments below!

Hey! I'm Justine-- marine bio nerd, beach bum, bikini addict, foodie, and designer/founder of Pelican House. With every bit of my soul, I love the ocean and all the life it holds, and it continues to inspire every aspect of my life. I first created the Pelican House blog, named after our little beach cottage we call home, to share with you a sweet little slice of our lifestyle in Santa Cruz, CA. It has since evolved into an all encompassing lifestyle brand inspired by my seaside life and passion for bikinis and ocean conservation. When I'm not working on making bikinis, I'm blogging about whatever is inspiring me that week. Be it a recipe, a piece of clothing, or an organic makeup company. Whether you are a fellow California girl or live thousands of miles away, I hope this blog makes you feel right at home in the Santa Cruz sunshine!
