For a nuttier flavor and extra protein, throw on some chopped almonds or walnuts. If you want to get really creative, try some edible flowers or coconut flakes for a tropical twist. Each topping offers a unique texture and flavor enhancement, allowing you to customize your fro-yo to suit your mood or the occasion—whether you’re aiming for a healthy snack or a more indulgent treat. 🌈✨🍓



Dragon Fruit Frozen Yogurt Recipe


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 2


Ingredients: (affiliate links)


• 1 cup frozen strawberries

• 1 cup frozen dragon fruit

• ½ cup unsweetened coconut yogurt (adjust based on consistency preference)

• 2 tablespoons monk fruit sugar substitute, ground to a powder (or sweetener of your choice - see options below)


Optional Toppings:


• Your favorite cereal

• Fresh fruits

• Nuts or seeds


Instructions:


1. Prepare the Sweetener: If you’re using monk fruit sugar substitute, start by grinding it into a fine powder using a coffee grinder or blender.

2. Blend the Ingredients: In a high-powered blender, combine the frozen strawberries, dragon fruit, and a small amount of coconut yogurt. Blend until smooth and creamy. Depending on your blender’s strength and the fruit’s hardness, you might need to adjust the amount of yogurt or pause to stir occasionally.

3. Adjust Sweetness: Add the powdered monk fruit to the blender and pulse a few times to mix thoroughly. Taste and adjust the sweetness if necessary.

4. Serve Immediately or Freeze: For a firmer consistency, you can place the frozen yogurt in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Otherwise, serve immediately.

5. Add Toppings: Spoon your frozen yogurt into bowls and go wild with the toppings! Sprinkle on some chocolate chips, a dash of cereal, or any other toppings you love.



Sweetener Alternatives:


Agave Nectar: A great vegan option, agave is sweeter than sugar, so you might need less. Start with 1 tablespoon and adjust to taste.

Maple Syrup: Another fabulous choice for a natural sweetener. It adds a distinct, rich flavor.

Date Paste: For a whole-food sweetener, blend up some dates into a paste and use in place of the monk fruit.


Tips:


Protein Boost: Add a scoop of your favorite plant-based protein powder for an extra protein kick.

Consistency: If the mixture is too thick, add more coconut yogurt a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is achieved.


Feel free to get creative with the flavors and toppings, making it as fun and unique as you like! 😋

Enjoy making your fro-yo Veginners, and remember, you can always tweak it to fit your taste!
