Forget the store bought fro-yo or ice cream and make your own Mint Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt from scratch. Not only is it full of fresh mint flavor and chocolate pieces, but it doesn’t even require an ice cream maker!
Mint Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons Sue Bee® Honey
- 1 1/2 cups fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- Roughly chop the mint leaves and place in a medium-sized saucepan with the coconut milk; turn the heat to medium.
- Stir occasionally and press on the mint leaves with the spoon to release the oils; bring to a simmer.
- Once simmering, add the honey and stir to combine. Turn off the heat and let the mint leaves steep for 30 minutes.
- Pour the mixture through a fine sieve into a large bowl, pressing down on the mint leaves to release any extra liquid into the bowl. Discard the leaves.
- Add the peppermint extract and Greek yogurt to the bowl; whisk to combine. Pour the mixture into a freezer-proof bowl (stainless steel works best) and place in the freezer.
- Stir the mixture every 30 minutes for 2 hours, scraping down the sides and whisking to combine.
- Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Drizzle over the partially frozen yogurt and whisk to break up the chocolate into little pieces.
- Freeze overnight until solid.
- Minutes before serving, set the frozen yogurt on the counter to defrost until able to be scooped.
- Serve and enjoy!
