Frozen Coconut Yogurt with Cinnamon

Frozen yogurt! I mean, let’s face it: Everybody loves a good frozen yogurt. Adults, tweens, teens, kids, whoever. You’ve seen it a hundred times at your local ice cream parlor on Sunday in the summer: 9:00 p.m. and the place is packed! A line around the corner, kids playing, everybody’s happy; it’s the sweet life. For a diabetic, that could go two ways: One way is horribly wrong, and that’s if there’re no sugar-free items on the board. Or, totally great because they do offer some special items for people with some sort of dietary restriction. Or there’s Plan C, which is that you make a batch of this silky, creamy, coconut yogurt at home and relax with the fam on Sunday night. Let the others rush to the corner store and wait in line; your only fear will be whether or not your family leaves you any.

Coconut Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Coconut Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
