The other day, I made homemade yogurt, and decided that a great way to use some of it was in this luscious Frozen Nutella Yogurt. It’s a true treat on hot summer days. Because it’s made with yogurt with active cultures, Frozen Nutella Yogurt which was inspired by Chocolate Covered Katie, is a healthy alternative to ice cream.
The ingredients include whole milk yogurt which was drained for about an hour, whole milk, Nutella, unsweetened cocoa, and vanilla extract. If you want it a little sweeter, you can add a bit of Stevia.
I added all of the ingredients except for the Stevia to my blender, and blended it on high for about 30 seconds to ensure that everything was totally incorporated. After a quick taste, I decided that it didn’t need any Stevia.
I refrigerated the mixture until it reached a temperature of about 40° F, and poured it into the bowl of my ice cream maker.
After about 20 minutes, the Frozen Nutella Yogurt was ready to be removed from the ice cream maker.
I transferred the Frozen Nutella Yogurt to a container, smoothed out the top, and put it the freezer to harden a bit more.
Talk about good! The Frozen Nutella Yogurt was creamy, chocolaty, and absolutely delicious. Yum!
