Gluten Free Sugar Free Almost Instant Cherry Frozen Yogurt Recipe
It is hard to say what I love most about this naturally gluten-free dessert. It could be the fact that it contains just four ingredients or that it is ready in under a minute. Or maybe it is the fact that it is refined sugar free and practically fat free. Then again, it could be that even now, in the dead of winter, it has the bright, juiciness of sweet cherries bursting all through, hearkening the warm, lazy days of summer.
I love the fact that with ingredients I almost always have on hand, I can make a company-worthy dessert and I can do it without even breaking a sweat. In fact I can do it barely moving. Seriously folks, this is one simple dessert.
Some may say that winter is not the ideal time for frozen desserts but I beg to differ. We tend to eat hearty, warming meals during the winter and I think something cool and refreshing after a substantial meal is just exactly the right thing! And since most people tend to eat heavier and move less during the winter, an essentially fat free dessert is certainly a plus.
This Gluten Free Sugar Free Almost Instant Cherry Frozen Yogurt recipe is so simple, it takes more time to write it down than to make it. You can prepare it before dinner and pop it in the freezer or have someone else clear the table and whip this up before they are done. If you make it more than an hour or so ahead it may freeze too hard but not to worry. If that happens just microwave it on defrost for 4 – 5 minutes, break it into smallish chunks and pop it all back into the food processor for a few seconds.
Don’t let the simplicity of the dessert fool you. Seriously simple, seriously sensational!
- 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
