First things first, what is desiccated coconut? Desiccated coconut is simply dried and grated coconut meat. It's a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes, including desserts, smoothies, granolas, and more. Desiccated coconut is high in fiber, healthy fats, and essential nutrients, making it a great addition to any diet.
Now, onto the main event: desiccated coconut frozen yogurt. The beauty of this recipe is that it's incredibly simple to make and can be customized to your liking.
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 cups of plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of Coco Mama desiccated coconut
- 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Optional: fresh fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips for toppings
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, desiccated coconut, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth and well-combined.
- Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions, typically around 20-25 minutes.
- Once the frozen yogurt is ready, transfer it to a container and freeze for at least 1 hour to firm up.
- Serve the frozen yogurt in bowls, topped with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.
And that's it! You now have a delicious and healthy summer treat that you can enjoy guilt-free. But why stop there? Here are a few variations to spice up your frozen yogurt game:
