Delicious FROYO - 3 gorgeous flavours

The Genius Dessert for weight watchers – Froyo, 3 ways

The dessert world is not a secular place, you know. I didn’t think of it that way until I started on project 50k (my weightloss project). I remember when I waited for dessert course in delicious anticipation. It was my favourite course. Tiramisu or Rum chocolate mousse or pannacota or .. ? I ate but with latent guilt. There aren’t very many options for people watching their weight.   It’s hardest when your friends are eating dessert and they coax you to have a bite too. You have a good mind to snatch the bowl from your friend and gobble it all up. Instead you demurely refuse citing a resolve that you very much doubt and pray that he finishes it up before you change your mind. I can manage most days when I have nothing within reach. But sometimes I just need something sweet and creamy. Enter FroYo or frogurt or frozen yogurt.

Simply place a sieve inside a bowl, line with a cheesecloth and pour yogurt into it. Place the entire set-up inside the fridge overnight. Thick cheese-like yogurt will be ready in the morning.

Freeze for 5-6 hours and scoop into bowls for a velvety smooth, creamy, tangy- sweet vanilla fro-yo. I like it at soft-serve stage. So I let it soften a bit before digging in. If you’re in the mood to try new flavours, then give these flavours a shot. I came up with them in a fit of creativity and inspired adaptation. The Fabflavours contest on Home Bakers Guild was the push I needed to dive in and do this. Thank you to Home Bakers Guild and Fabflavours for that! Beet Khova Froyo The inspiration for the beet-khova froyo comes from the beetroot halwa that my periamma made often when we were little kids. The...
