Coconut Frozen Yogurt

I’m going to tell you a secret.  Frozen yogurt is supposed to taste like yogurt that is frozen. It isn’t supposed to taste like sweet cream, or air.  It is a rule that a nation of serve yourself fro-yo stores doesn’t know. Allegedly.

Because we have dairy goats, this recipe uses goat yogurt, but you can substitute with cow or sheep as you like.  The end result has a yogurt tang to it…which is intentional.  It tastes lightly sweet, very creamy and very coconutty.


Coconut Frozen Yogurt

3 cups plain {unsweetened} yogurt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup coconut flakes {sweet or unsweetened–your choice}
1 1/2 cups coconut cream
1/4 tsp coconut extract {optional}

Heat the coconut cream, sugar and coconut flakes in a saucepan until just simmered and the sugar has melted. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Stir into the yogurt and add the coconut extract, if using. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. Churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacture’s instructions.
