Coconut Cherry Frozen Yogurt

Homemade coconut cherry frozen yogurt with only 5 ingredients!

I’ve been making this for about five years, and every single time I think “Whoa, this is so ridiculously good.”

I made it the last week we were in North Carolina (with all our leftover cherries that I also used in these muffins) and we definitely didn’t eat it out of cute little bowls. We mainly ate it with plastic spoons standing at the kitchen island in between packing way too many boxes.

Either way you choose to eat it, it’s fantastic.

Plus, it has only five ingredients, so there’s basically no reason not to make it immediately (and then again the next day too).

Coconut Cherry Frozen Yogurt
(from Smitten Kitchen)

Makes about 1 quart 

3/4 cup cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
3 cups plain Greek Yogurt
1 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk
1/2 – 3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Combine all ingredients, stirring really well, and refrigerate for about an hour so the sugar completely dissolves.

Mix in your ice cream maker according to the directions. Serve immediately or freeze until it is as hard as you’d like.

    That looks delicious! I wish I had an ice cream maker – but then I think it's probably for the best that I don't as I would just eat nothing else haha xoxo Louise | Reads and Recipes A literary lifestyle blog

    Do you make it with canned coconut milk or the thinner coconut milk that comes in cartons?
