Diabetic Recipes: Lemon-Lavender Frozen Yogurt
My husband and I lived in Columbus, Ohio when we were first married. In Columbus, there is a famous ice cream/frozen yogurt shop called Jeni’s. I love their unique variety of flavors. One of my favorite flavors is their creamy lavender… I still dream about it at night! Finding this recipe brought me back to those wonderful memories. Even though the major flavor in this creation is lemon, I hope you enjoy the splash of Lavender! What a perfect sugar-free delight for a hot summer’s day.Yield: 10 Servings
|1/2 cup||fat-free half-and-half|
|2 teaspoons||dried lavender|
|4 cups||vanilla fat-free greek yogurt|
|2 tablespoons||finely shredded lemon peels|
|1/2 cup||lemon juice|
|finely shredded lemon peel (optional)|
|fresh lemon slices (optional)|
|fresh lavender sprigs (optional)|
1 In a small saucepan bring fat-free half-and-half just to boiling. Remove from heat; add dried lavender. Let stand 30 minutes.
2 In a large bowl combine yogurt, the 2 tablespoons lemon peel, the lemon juice, honey, and the lavender mixture. Cover and chill 1 hour.
3 Freeze chilled mixture in a 2-quart ice cream freezer according to the manufacturer's directions. Serve at once for a softer frozen yogurt. For a firmer mixture, place in an airtight container; freeze 30 to 60 minutes. If desired, garnish servings with additional lemon peel, lemon slices and/or fresh lavender sprigs.
