Banana Fat-Free Frozen Yogurt Ice Cream

I was inspired by a post on HWHL, so I set to work making banana frozen yogurt instead of just plain frozen banana.

Simple ingredients:
3/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt (no added sweetener)
1/2 large banana (60g)
2 1-tsp. packets of artificial sweetener (sweetener is separate, that way you can control the amount of sweetener in the recipe and what kind you want)

Calories - 150, 0.5g fat, 27.5g carbs, 9.5g protein

Chop the banana in chunks. This probably isn't necessary, but I did it anyway.

Fat-free plain yogurt.

The ingredients in a food processor. After making it this way, I decided a blender would do fine, and be easier anyway. Less parts.

Blend it all until it is smooth and creamy. Then freeze it in a countertop electric ice cream maker, or just put it in any small container and freeze it in the freezer. Honestly, this recipe needs to be tripled to work in the kind of countertop ice cream maker that uses a thick frozen tub to freeze everything. The one-serving portion was too small to properly turn into smooth ice cream.

Mmm... so good! Sweet, but tangy!


  1. I can't wait to enjoy this tonight after a hard workout. What a nice reward. Thanks for sharing Becky!

  2. I like the addition of the yogurt. Adds some protein. Great job! And, nice blog!

  3. Can look at my blog to see nutritional facts of low fat, and fat free food at grocery stores.
