Calories 775 kcal


  • 3 C Plain Low Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Tsp Lemon Zest
  • 3/4 C Raw Honey
  • 3/4 C Freshly Squeezed Lemons Appx 5 Lemons


  • In a medium saucepan over heat, whisk the honey, lemon juice, and zest, and bring to a simmer, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes, just until the honey is dissolved into the lemon juice to make a syrup. Place the syrup in an uncovered, shallow container and refrigerate until completely chilled, about half hour, stirring occasionally to speed up the cooling process.
  • Whisk the honey lemon syrup into the yogurt until completely combined.
  • Yogurt can be eaten as is (scooped out and eaten), or for frozen yogurt, place it in a sealable container., sealed with wax paper. Soft-serve frozen yogurt will harden in about an hour in the freezer.

Not everyone loves ice cream. So, if you like your summer treats chilled, but aren’t a big ice cream fan, you may be more inclined to savor a skinny summer treat that can still provide you with that fresh flavor.  IF this is the case, choose the Fruit Smoothie.

Frozen is not the only way to enjoy the tastes of summer.   Maybe you don’t really like the brain freeze that comes with frozen foods. If frozen isn’t your chosen method to cool down, choose from one of my favorite, delicious fruit infused waters.fruit infused
