How irresistible is this bowl of glistening, ruby red, sweet-tart cherries? I love that pop of juice in my mouth as you bite into the fruit! I even love the splatter of messy red juice stains on my chopping board and hands while I’m pitting cherries. We eat them by the cartloads all the time when in season that could be because I ALWAYS purchase them by the cartloads!! For a very good reason though….. I love incorporating cherries into sweet treats like this Cherry Frozen Yogurt with Chocolate Chips!
I get to bake with them, think tarts, muffins, coffee cakes, cheesecakes and use them to make our summertime specials…ice creams, Cherry Popsicles and this Cherry Frozen Yogurt! Drool, slurp, drool!
Now making frozen treats does not have to be complicated at all. Keep the ingredients simple, play around with the recipe a bit till you get what you enjoy. An ice-cream maker is a great appliance to have for making ice creams and frozen yogurts. But not to worry, if you don’t have one, use a blender or ze good ol’ hands!!
Frozen yogurts are so fabulous. Creamy and sweet, they make for a perfect low calorie, healthy dessert. Let the delicious, in-season fruit do all the talking. Add more fruit to intensify the flavor, add more yogurt to enhance the smoothness. They are easier to make than ice creams , not that it stops me. But more on ice creams later….
So let’s get on with the Cherry Frozen Yogurt……
This is really one easy peasy lovely light dessert for those hot summer days. Tangy thick yogurt, sweet fat juicy cherries, and some honey to sweeten the deal. That’s all you need here. The chocolate chips are optional, but they add a touch of indulgence, that we all love. Cherries and chocolate make a beautiful combination, a classic. You could add any nuts of your choice here too, for that extra crunch.
This recipe is a keeper, trust me. Make this once, and you’ll keep going back to it!
Enjoy your summer folks! Our wonderful summer fruit bounty is what makes this scorching heat bearable!
