Earl Grey Frozen Yogurt with Clementines & Cardamom
I find most people look at me a little sideways as I order ice cream for dessert when eating out in the dead of winter while they all order warm fruit cobbler or molten lava cakes. I supposed frozen treats are more of a summer dessert. But me? I’m a year-round ice cream lover. It’s never too cold for smooth, creamy frozen treats in my opinion. My favorite is Cherry Cheesecake Ice Cream. Cheesecake ice cream swirled with fresh sweet cherry compote and graham crackers. It tastes just like eating cherry cheesecake!
But rich ice creams are a once in a while treat. We can’t all be scarfing down gobs of full octane ice cream all the time lest we not fit into our skinny jeans. So more often you’ll find me enjoying healthier frosty treats like Paleo Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Dairy-free and absolutely no added sugar, this is my go-to ice cream recipe when my sweet tooth comes knocking. Cacao nibs, plump raspberries and sweetness from bananas, this is one tasty ice cream.
Not to be ignored, the close relative to my beloved ice cream is frozen yogurt, another favorite dessert of mine. There you are in the grocery, picking up a pint of what you believe to be a healthier option. But so many times you’ll find store-bought versions while lower in fat, they’re usually packed with as much if not more sugar than their full fat counterparts! This frozen yogurt recipe is here to rescue you from the misleading brand name versions.
Smooth, creamy plain yogurt is churned with the floral, almost citrusy notes of Earl Grey tea along with the natural sugar of raw honey. That’s it! You’re got fresh frozen yogurt. How easy was that? With only 5 minutes of effort on your part, you have a healthy dessert that won’t feel you leaving guilty after enjoying it. Topping this frozen yogurt with sweet clementines allows you to get more sweetness in a healthy way. A dash of cardamom is the perfect finishing touch.
