Cherry Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

This week, it has started to feel like spring, and I’m so happy about it!

Ellie’s been playing outside after we get home from work, and I am finally comfortable enough to turn the heat off in my classroom partway through the morning.  I’m not exactly counting the minutes until the temperatures are over 100, but Spring weather is more than welcome.

My grandparents were visiting last week and Ellie loved it.  She did a fashion show for us with her rain boots and my running shoes.  Love this kid!

This is a fairly tart frozen yogurt with a hint of sweetness from the chocolate.  You can adjust the amount of agave to make it sweeter if you’d like (and I’m sure the amount you need will depend on the cherries you use).

  • This looks great. I love dessert recipes that don’t depend on uber sweetness. Cherries are great the way they are–they don’t need to be made all syrupy and saccharine!

  • I’ve made ice cream, but never frozen yogurt. Which is funny, since I love frozen yogurt.
