Strawberry Colada frozen yogurt is a refreshing treat on a warm summer day. Ripe, juicy strawberries mingle with tangy pineapple and sweet coconut for a dreamy, creamy homemade frozen dessert. The United Dairy Industry of Michigan is sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
I aim to create an exciting new ice cream flavor each week in July for National Ice Cream Month. Although, I admit to being apprehensive as to how such a commitment might affect my waistline. I don’t suffer flashes of vanity that often. But the warmer weather and its requisite shedding of more forgiving clothing layers brings about a certain amount notice as to how things are fitting around my midsection. It’s not narcissistic to want to wear shorts that don’t feel like a tourniquet due to my ice cream habit. Oh, yes! I have an ice cream habit.
I’d love to say that the heat of July inspires me to eat more frosty treats for the chilling refreshment of it all. To be honest, I loves me some ice cream all year long. In fact, I often finish most days with a creamy scoop of ice cream. Consider it a sort of frozen nightcap. As long as I’m being honest, I should also mention that depending the day I’ve had, the nightly “scoop” may come in the form of a soup spoon being plunged directly from the carton into my mouth.
Thankfully, what I lack in willpower I more than make up for in common sense. I try to balance the indulgences by living an active lifestyle, and lightening up my favorite foods without sacrificing taste. That includes using high quality Michigan dairy products in my recipes so that I can ensure optimum flavor and nutrition.
Strawberry Colada Frozen Yogurt is the perfect balance between creamy indulgence and healthy summer refreshment.
Sweet, ripe strawberries are easily morphed into a three ingredient simple fruit sauce. The cool strawberry sauce is blends with vanilla yogurt and then churns in an ice cream maker to a soft-serve consistency. Juicy pineapple tidbits are folded into the mix, with layers of tender, sweet coconut before being frozen firm enough to scoop.
Strawberry Colada Frozen Yogurt is a satisfying frozen treat that won’t have an adverse effect on the waistline!
So, leave the guilt in the closet where it belongs! Scoop away, Friends!
