4 Low Fat No Egg Homemade Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

As I type this, I am watching a wet, heavy snow fall outside my window.  I should be posting about a hearty soup, paired with a crusty loaf of warm homemade bread.

Snow?  In May?  *Sigh*  I'm so ready for winter to be over!

I have had so much fun making my own yogurt.  You can use the WARM setting on your crock pot or wrap your bowl of yogurt in a heating pad and some blankets. Update 2016: It's now even easier to make yogurt in my Instant Pot pressure cooker!

If you don't make your own yogurt, find a plain store bought yogurt in the taste and texture you love. I love being able to make my own yogurt, as it only uses 2 ingredients (milk + starter), then I add pure vanilla extract and sweetener. I can make my yogurt as mild as I want.

Don't have an ice cream maker?  Don't worry.  David Lebovitz has a technique HERE that works.  I also saw a blogger who chilled her KitchenAid bowl and whipped up her partially frozen ice cream.

I searched the Internet and found a very simple, LOW FAT and easy chocolate frozen yogurt recipe on Allrecipes that got rave reviews.  No eggs are required and it got a double thumbs up around my house!


The best part?

No TART after taste....just smooth, creamy, chocolate-y goodness...

Low Fat Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
By Breezylou on Allrecipes.com

Ingredients

3/4 c. white sugar
2 t. cornstarch
1 (12 oz.) can of fat free evaporated milk (all I could find was 2%)
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. plain low fat yogurt (I used homemade, from 2% milk)
1 t. vanilla extract

Directions

Stir together the cornstarch and sugar, and place in a saucepan. 
Stir in the evaporated milk, and chocolate chips. 
Cook over medium heat until chocolate is melted and the mixture is thickened. Stir constantly to prevent burning.
Remove the mixture from the heat, and stir in the plain yogurt and vanilla. Refrigerate until chilled.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.
