I love frozen yogurt, gelato, ice cream, sorbet...all things cold, creamy, and sweet. It has been unseasonably warm in my neck of the woods, so I have wasted no time to start enjoying frosted treats this spring. This guilt-free dessert comes together in only a few minutes with ingredients that you probably already have on hand. Make it before you start dinner and it will be ready once the plates are cleared away. It's a favorite with guests of all ages.
1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1 1/2 fresh ripe bananas
1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 scant cup pure maple syrup (preferably grabe B)
Purée ingredients in a blender until very smooth. Pour into an airtight container and freeze until it has a soft-serve consistency, 1 to 2 hours.
