Ice cream is the ultimate treat for children, and usually enjoyed at birthday parties. The familiar dessert, however is full of sugar, fat and usually a host of E numbers, preservatives and nasties, which do little to help build a happy little body for your son or daughter...not to mention being high in calories.



I adore frozen yogurt and is my ultimate go-to dessert whenever I'm on holiday. In a bid to recreate my happy holiday memories, and serve a suitable dessert when I was helping to cook for a kids birthday party, I created home-made vanilla froyo.

Instead of using semi-skimmed, or 'low-fat' yogurt, always use whole because it is higher in protein - essential for growing kids - and the milk has not been chemically altered to reduce the natural fat content.

By making froyo yourself, you forgo the questions associated with the shop-bought froyo which claims to be 'low-fat' and 'low-sugar', but is in fact full of saccharine and GMO's.



Patience is required, but with only three ingredients, and a little time, you'll have a delicious dessert that will satisfy the sweet tooth of children, and keep the parents, if you're making this for their little ones, happy too.

Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
100g whole probiotic yogurt
Half a vanilla pod
Tbslp runny honey

Method
Add half of the yogurt to a ramekin/small bowl.



Pour in the honey.



Feel free to use set honey if it's all you have in, but is does not mix as well, as the runny honey does.

Scrape in the vanilla.



Mix together until fully combined and the honey and vanilla is equally distributed.



Repeat with another ramekin/small bowl.

Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.



Remove from the freezer, scrape down the sides, stir completely and place back in the freezer for a further 20 minutes.



Finally take the bowls/ramekins out of the freezer, stir, and serve.



Although I consider this a kids dessert, it is a perfect low-sugar, post-workout snack, or dessert which grown ups can also enjoy.

I often whip up this dessert when I'm craving sugar, but don't want the calories, saturated fat, or scary stuff found in ice cream and shop-bought low-fat options. Making it yourself is also rather satisfying and makes it that bit more enjoyable.
