My Grandma used to make the best raspberry pies on the face of this earth. I’m sure that’s what sparked my love of raspberries.
Alas, a girl can’t eat pies every day (certainly there’s a universe where pies are healthy), so thankfully there are many other ways to get my raspberry love on.
What’s so good about raspberries?
- Loaded with antioxidant and anticancer benefits
- High in Vitamin C and Fiber
- Low on the glycemic index (berries are one of the best fruits to eat)
- Full of phytonutrients that happen to protect us from inflammation
We put raspberries in our smoothies, on granola, in baked goods, and now I put them in this delightfully tart Raspberry Frozen Yogurt.
I spent many a lunches devouring dairy-filled fruit on the bottom yogurt. I loved it. And of course, raspberry was my favorite flavor.
Once I went dairy-free I couldn’t find a substitute that I liked (and wasn’t loaded with refined sugar). Thankfully I recently discovered Yoso’s Coconut Milk Yogurt which is plain and unsweetened so I can turn it into any kind of magic I want!
Can you tell I’m beckoning Spring with this recipe?
Dairy-Free Raspberry Frozen Yogurt
This recipe will make your blender work so feel free to add a little liquid if you need to get things moving.
- ½ cup Yoso’s plain unsweetened yogurt
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 small banana (unfrozen will make it blend easier)
- ¼ cup ground chia
- 2 scant cups frozen raspberries
- pinch sea salt
1. Add all of the ingredients to your blender (make sure to add softer ingredients first).
2. I use the Ice Cream setting on my Blendtec and blend away.
3. If it’s too thick for your blender, add dairy-free milk 1 tablespoon at a time and stop during to wipe sides down and give it a little lovin!
*If you want to turn this into a smoothie, add a little bit of dairy-free milk (start with ¼ cup). And if your palate is on the sweet side, add some stevia or maple syrup to sweeten this up.
Yield: 2 dessert size servings
