It was winter season when I first stumbled upon this captivating and delicious Frozen Yogurt or Froyo photo by My Diary Of Us blog.
It took me a second to realize this was not yet another beautiful fruit Froyo recipe, but a sweet beet version.
So, of course, after seeing this twist, I just had to try it out! 🙂
This Froyo is a healthy dessert which you can eat every season
Even though there is no fruit in it, the honey makes sure you have a healthy sweet dish in front of you. While the beets give an amazing and earthy flavor that you wouldn’t normally expect from a dessert, but it fits perfectly with all other tastes so I fell in love with it immediately.
Also, the good thing about this recipe, as it is with all Froyo recipes, is that you do not have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing it.
If you can buy in your local store a pre-cooked beet root, you can make the Froyo in just minutes, and then leave it in the freezer to set and do something else during that time.
And don’t stop at making this dessert only once. Make it several times and every time you make it, change the ingredient amounts until you find a perfect flavor balance that best suits your taste.
I am sure most of you will prepare and enjoy this dessert during the summer season. But don’t forget that eating ice creams and Froyos is actually better to do in winter. So, don’t hesitate to make this dessert at any time of the year.
You can read this recipe in Croatian here: Zamrznuti jogurt s ciklom i medom
- Cooked beet roots (150 grams/5.3 ounces)
- Greek yogurt (300-450 grams/10-16 ounces)
- Honey (50 ml/0.2 cups or 3 table spoons)
- Olive oil (1 tea spoon)
- Pinch of salt
- Goji berries + almonds (to taste for decoration)
- Add Greek yogurt, cooked beet roots, honey and olive oil in a food processor.
- Pulse everything into a smooth cream/paste.
- To make a Froyo pour the cream into an ice cream maker and follow the instructions until you get a ready to scoop Froyo.
- Or you can, as I did, pour everything into a plastic bowl, cover and store in the freezer for a couple of hours.
- Before serving, take the Froyo out of the freezer for about 10 minutes so you can easily scoop it out into cones or bowls.
