The weather doesn't know what it wants to do today, the sky going from blue with clouds to gray and overcast. It poured down rain early this morning so today is pretty humid and warm and I am craving something cool and tart. I was looking through the Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates cookbook and saw this recipe for Lime Frozen Yogurt. I love lime and the recipe is quick and easy to throw together so it sounded perfect for a muggy day.
Lime Frozen Yogurt
Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates
2 cups non-fat plain yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
6 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp freshly grated lime peel
1 cup sugar
Beat together the yogurt, lime juice, lime peel and sugar in a bowl for about 2 minutes, until the sugar dissolves. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.
Yields 1 quart frozen yogurt. Serves 6 (it would be six pretty small servings)
Results: Delicious and refreshing! It's tangy and tart but the sugar keeps it from being sour. I put a bit more zest in it and I might cut the sugar down just a little next time. Since it is non-fat, I wish I had been making it all summer. Try it paired with one of these.
