Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt

Frozen low carb yogurt adds healthy fats to your diet, and doubles as a make-ahead dessert. Vanilla is a signature flavor that’s easy to build upon, simply by adding your favorite extract.

Enjoy the rich vanilla bean flavor as-is, or slather in a crunchy, dark chocolate (low carb) shell. Either way, this ice cream recipe fits perfectly into your macros.

Make Low Carb Frozen Yogurt Pops

Pour finished low carb frozen yogurt into pop molds or small containers. Freeze at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Dip in just-made low carb chocolate sauce – Delish!

 

Easy Chocolate Shell Sauce

Melt low carb chocolate chips over low heat in a double boiler or use a microwave. Remove from heat, add a dash of salt and vanilla extract, and allow to cool.

We’re going for a runny-thick (but not too firm) consistency. You may add some butter or coconut oil to thin your sauce.

Pour into a tall glass or dish – one that is wider than your pop.

Remove the low carb vanilla pops from your freezer, dip quickly into the chocolate sauce, then place on a parchment-paper lined chilled plate.

Place back into the freezer for 5 minutes (minimum) before eating.
