Strawberry Kiwi & Lime Frozen Yogurt and Blog Awards

by Suzanne on May 9, 2012

in Sweet Things

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe I made and shared at The Mother Huddle website. It’s that time of year again to drag out the ice-cream maker and whip up some goodness with strawberries, kiwi’s and limes. Strawberries are always a favorite at our house, my son loves them most.  I constantly am thinking of ways to use strawberries like these healthy strawberry yogurt pops  or these strawberry cupcakes since we almost always have them in the refrigerator or freezer.  I got the idea to make this yogurt from watching the foodnetwork .  I made the strawberry yogurt my own by adding kiwi and lime and it gave it a fresher more tangy taste.  The fruity yogurt was perfect after a heavy meal since it’s light tasting.  If you do decide to make it this recipe make sure you taste the puree to adjust for sweetness.  I like things sour but when I first tasted the puree it was really sour, so in came the addition of honey to my recipe.  If I would have had fresh mint or basil I would have put that into the fruit as it was macerating to give it another layer of flavor and depth.

Strawberry Kiwi & Lime Frozen Yogurt and Blog Awards

3 1/2 cups chopped strawberries
3 kiwi’s peeled and chopped
1 lime zested and juiced
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 cup of Greek style plain yogurt

Serve: with fresh fruit like strawberries, bananas, kiwi or cantaloupe.

Makes 1 quart

For the rest of the recipe please visit the The Mother Huddle and say hello.

Here are some other yummy strawberry recipes from some super food blogger.

Every once and a while I’m lucky enough to be nominated by some fellow food bloggers for blog awards.  I’m not great at following up immediately since it’s difficult to brag on oneself but  I do want to thank these ladies for thinking of me and giving me the awards. First my friend Amy over at Savory Moments gave me the “Versatile Blogger Award”.  Later followed by Soni  from Soni’s Food for Thought , she gave me several awards that she has been saving up 🙂 they are the “Happy Blogger Award”, “Kreativ blogger Award”, the “Sunshine blogger Award”, and the “Liebster Award”

The Rules for the versatile blogger award are to tell 7 random things about yourself and share this award with 15 other bloggers whew…that’s a lot of bloggers.  Another award had me answer a questionnaire and another wanted 10 facts so I’ve tried to combined a few things here.

Oh I will be making this recipe over the Summer, that’s for sure;-)

2 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:32 pm

it so easy to do Patty you will love it.

3 Rowena @ Apron and Sneakers May 9, 2012 at 4:04 pm

I think I will be using this recipe a lot. I’ve been trying to make my kids eat kiwi but to no success. Hidden with strawberries should do the trick. This is rich in Vitamin C! Thanks for sharing!

4 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Yes Ro, the kiwi is even more hidden because of the straining of the seeds, so they will never know!

5 Laura (Tutti Dolci) May 9, 2012 at 4:57 pm

I love strawberry & kiwi together, this looks so refreshing!

6 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I know right, I love the two together and the lime just adds extra zing.

7 Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts May 9, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Love the yogurt – strawberries and kiwi’s go so well together!

I am horrible with awards! I have been given like 3 of them in the last month, but forgot who gave them to me, so I can’t thank them or claim them 🙁

8 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm

I am too Erin as you can see. Glad you liked the yogurt hope you get to try it out.

9 Jen Laceda @ Tartine and Apron Strings May 9, 2012 at 11:18 pm

argh! i don’t have an ice cream machine! but perhaps i can make frozen popsicles??

10 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Jen, you seriously need to invest in a ice-cream machine, they are the best. But popsicles works too.

I just froze the ice cream maker after making strawberry ice cream. Next time I should try frozen yogurt. I don’t know why I haven’t tried yet (I bougth the ice cream maker at the end of last summer – finally!). Looks really delicious. It’s been hot in SF Bay Area, so this will be very nice!

12 Suzanne May 11, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Yes, you should Nami, I think your kids might like it.

13 Lisa (AuthenticSuburbanGourmet) May 10, 2012 at 8:43 am

This looks incredibily delish! I need to make frozen yogurt! I love the kind you buy from Yogurtland but to make it at home, I am sure it would be even better. Thank you for the shout out. It is so fun to see all of the creative ways people are using strawberries! Hope you have a wonderful day!!
