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.

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

Maggie, this frozen yogurt looks awesome! I love the flavor of raspberries, and the color, too. 🙂 I’ve seen lots of frozen yogurt and ice cream recipes lately. I wonder if they will actually work to bring on spring. 😉 I made Olive Oil Ice Cream for our support group meeting on Monday night. Truly to die for. Like eating rich cake batter. Yum.

Here’s to spring! And as I saw on Twitter, if you ever find that Pie Universe, please let us know as some of us might want to move there … or at least make an extended visit. Hehe.

Thank you so much Shirley. I know I’m not alone in looking forward to Spring! I think we have the power to move mountains 🙂 Olive Oil Ice Cream? I am so intrigued! I must look for a recipe (for the cake batter taste alone).
Thanks for the love,
Maggie xo

Oh…my kiddos would devour this one. I love this recipe, Maggie! I have not tried the Yoso yet, but I love that it is unsweetened and plain so that you can make your own creations! 🙂 My grandma used to make raspberry ice cream all of the time and it was one of my most favorite treats during the summer!! 😀

Thanks Kim! My kids don’t love raspberries, but Livvie would love a strawberry version of this! Grandma’s and the memories we created with them are the best. I miss you!

Maggie – this looks absolutely beautiful. Trust you to come up with a great dairy free alternative. At least you and I know where to pick the fresh organic raspberries! 😉 It won’t be long now until they are here in all of their glory. Thank goodness we didn’t have to chain ourselves to the bushes with the recent renovations!

You’re the best Cheryl! Yes, I can’t WAIT for Bec’s raspberries – someone’s gotta eat them, we can pick them while the kiddies swim! You must be counting down the hours till you see your beautiful family. Enjoy. xo
