5min berry froyo

Serves 2  |  1h + 5min  |  Easy

I've never really been into froyo that much, but that's mostly because the froyos I've tried have been as unhealthy as ice cream, and who are we kidding - why would you eat an unhealthy froyo when you can have unhealthy ice cream? At least the ice cream is honest about it's unhealthiness.

In all seriousness, I don't think it's important to compare healthiness or even exclude something if it's unhealthy. If you feel like ice cream or froyo - eat it, life is short! 

But back to the topic at hand, froyo hasn't been my thing until now. I've been googling some vegan ice cream options and I stumbled upon this one. It was originally from a cookbook called "My Darling Lemon Thyme: recipes from My Real Food Kitchen" by Emma Galloway, but as one does I tweaked it a little bit.  If you haven't heard of froyo before it's basically frozen yoghurt with lots of added sugar. But naturally we don't add any sugar, there are so many natural ways of creating sweetness that it's rarely necessary, and I'm on a mission to show you how easy it is to make healthy desserts!

  • 2 dl berries (we mixed strawberries, lingonberries and blueberries)

  • 0,75 dl of yoghurt (we used Oatlys vegan yogurt, delish!)

  • 2 frozen bananas

  • mint leaves

  1. Freeze the bananas for at least an hour, but preferably a day in advance (already peeled and sliced for your convenience)
  2. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix with a stick mixer (or you can use a blender if you prefer)
  3. Devour. Enjoy. Live long and prosper.

Wow! I'm seriously surprised it was only three short steps to make it! That was easy. So what are you waiting for? Go make it! This recipe is perfect for that last minute dessert (if you keep frozen bananas in your freezer like any sane person) since most of the ingredients are frozen and the consistency will be perfect straight away. You can always freeze it afterwards of course, but just remember to take it out at least 30min in advance of eating if completely frozen.
