After my recent post about Beetroot Milk, I decided to move on to a different dairy product. This time, yoghurt.
Summer is approaching and all you want to do is sip those cool sodas and have ice creams. But what if I have a better and guilt free option in mind? Something that looks greeaattt too? (Read: Pink in color)
Yes! I’m talking about a Beet Frozen Yoghurt! Smart ain’t it?
Now this sweetie is very easy to make, i.e, nothing that will burn your hands or yourself. Adapted from My Diary of Us , I decided to add some vanilla extract and maple syrup for good measure. I always seem to add some vanilla extract as I love how even a tiny drop can change the fragrance and taste.
Read the recipe below:
- 2 medium beetroots
- 1 cup yoghurt
- 4 tsp honey
- 4 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- pistachios and almond flakes to garnish
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Wrap your beetroots/beets in aluminium foil and roast for about 45 minutes. Take them out, peel and mash them with a fork after they are cool.
Add your beets into a food processor and blend till you see a homogenous mixture. Let this cool for about an hour. Later, add this mixture along with yoghurt, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla extract into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Freeze for about 15 mins first and then beat the batter till its consistency is soft and there are no lumps. Freeze again for 2 hours. Serve, garnish, and enjoy.
This recipe is definitely foolproof. Anyone and everyone can get this right. And what you’re rewarded is a beautiful pink-ish/magenta froyo that will cheer you up in no time.
Perfect for those nights of binge watching too!
