Coconut Frozen Yogurt

The creamy texture of this treat tastes positively naughty—but it isn’t (1/2 cup is only 147 calories)! Once unfrozen, the yogurt also makes a great topping for fruit. Since yogurt is low in fat, this treat freezes hard, so let it defrost 1 hour on the countertop before you enjoy it. Or freeze in paper cups with popsicle sticks inserted to create a healthy frozen dessert on a stick!

Makes 8 Servings


1⁄2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

4 cups (32 ounces) plain, fat-free Greek yogurt

1⁄2 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

1 tablespoon coconut extract

2 teaspoons vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cover a small cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Spread the coconut on the sheet and bake 2 to 3 minutes, stirring once, until the coconut has lightly browned.

2. Place the coconut in a large bowl with the yogurt, sugar, flaxseed, coconut extract, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth and transfer into a freezer-safe container. Freeze 1 hour or more until firm.
