Skinny Strawberry Ice Cream

Here's the Dish

This ice cream has been one of my staple ’snacks’ this summer! It’s the perfect snack in my opinion, because it’s full of protein, it’s easy to make, and it’s cool and refreshing! With strawberries being in their ‘prime’ season, this is a great way to use up those perfectly sweet berries!So if you’re looking for a sweet and creamy dish that’s full of strawberry flavor, look no further than this delicious scoop of summer!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 30-35 Minutes.

1

Combine all of the ingredients (except for 1/2 of the strawberries) in a blender, and blend until smooth.

2

Pour mixture into ice cream maker. Let the ice cream churn for about 20-25minutes, or until it becomes a firm ‘frozen yogurt’ texture. Add the rest of the chopped strawberries in the last few minutes of churning. Scoop ice cream into individual dishes, and add toppings, if desired.

3

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Note: You can also scoop ice cream into a Tupperware, and freeze for up to one hour, for a more firm ‘ice cream’ texture. However, don’t let ice cream freeze for longer than one hour, or it will become an ice block!  If it does become harder than you would like, you can always put the Tupperware in the microwave for about 30 seconds to defrost to desired texture!

Ingredients

1 cup Almond milk or skim milk (I used vanilla Almond Breeze)
1 1/2 cups Fat free Greek Yogurt, (plain or vanilla)
1 cup Strawberries, chopped
4 pktsStevia (or 1 tbs sweetener of choice, or to taste)
Optional Topping: fat free whip cream

Katie's Tip!

You can also scoop ice cream into a Tupper- ware, and freeze for up to one hour, for a more firm ‘ice cream’ texture. However, don’t let ice cream freeze for longer than one hour, or it will become an ice block!

Oh yum! Great idea. I use a lot of those same ingredients to make my smoothies but never thought to put it into the ice cream maker. Thanks!

Hi Katie,
I love vanilla ice cream. Do you think you could make this without the strawberries or would that change the consistance too much? Thanks!!

Dashing Dish said:

you could… although you might want to replace the strawberries with equal parts more greek yogurt! :)

Hi! I just got an ice cream maker so I have been trying many new recipes/ experimenting with different recipes; and I saw yours and saw your note about how you don’t want to put this in the freezer for longer than an hour because it will become a hard block. I read elsewhere that adding wine can help with this, do you think that adding ~2 tsp. low-cal wine to this mixture will work? I’ll try experimenting it myself but if you have any suggestions then that could potentially help save a whole batch!
Thanks :)
