This homemade frozen yogurt consists of just a few ingredients and doesn’t require any churning or complicated equipment, thank goodness. The secret to success with this banana cream frozen yogurt recipe is finding the right balance between the tangy Greek yogurt and more mild cream cheese. If you use regular yogurt instead, you may want to use a little more because it is less creamy than Greek varieties. Can we count this as a daily fruit serving LOL?
Banana Cream Frozen Yogurt Ingredients
2 large bananas
1/2 Cup plain Fage 0% Greek yogurt
6-oz. fat-free cream cheese, cut into chunks
¾ Tablespoon. real vanilla extract
1/8 Cup honey, preferably local
Optional Toppings (These toppings are NOT calculated in the Weight Watchers Freestyle points)
Fresh banana slices
Chocolate sauce Crushed graham crackers Crushed nuts
Tip: Regular vanilla extract will affect the color of this dish. To prevent this, choose a clear vanilla extract instead. However, be sure to read labels carefully because most clear extracts are imitation.
Banana Cream Frozen Yogurt Directions
Peel and cut bananas into thin slices. Place banana slices in a plastic freezer-safe bag and place in the freezer until frozen.
Add yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and frozen banana slices to powerful blender or food processor and blend until completely smooth. (If necessary, add 2-3 tablespoons of water to the blender to loosen the mixture).
While blending, drizzle in honey until thoroughly combined with other ingredients. Once blended, taste mixture and add more honey, if desired.
Transfer contents of blender to a freezer safe dish and cover tightly. Place in freezer for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
To serve, remove from freezer and let sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes to soften. Scoop into individual chilled serving dishes and garnish with slices of fresh banana or other favorite toppings.
