Post-Bariatric Frozen Yogurt
After having weight loss surgery, it can be hard to fill the void of all of the tasty treats in which you used to indulge. There really is no replacement for ice cream, but this post-bariatric frozen yogurt is really delicious. Make some raspberry yogurt, throw in a few chocolate chips and you might even convince yourself you have some tasty black raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt!
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt (I used Fage 0%, it's my favorite!)
- 4 cups frozen raspberries (16 oz)
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp lemon or lime juice
- 6 Tbsp Chocolate Chips or other Add-Ins (Optional)
Add all of the berries into the food processor and pulse until all the berries are in small pieces (see note 1).
Add in the yogurt, honey, vanilla, and juice and blend until a smooth puree
Transfer all of the frozen yogurt into a sieve settled over a bowl. Push all of the yogurt through the sieve with a rubber spatula, scraping the underside of the sieve to move all of the yogurt into the bowl. Most of the seeds should stay separated from the rest of the mixture.
If using chocolate chips or other add-ins, mix them into the yogurt mixture (see note 2).
Transfer to your serving dishes and freeze for 2 hours. You want it frozen, but not so hard you can't scoop it (see note 3).

- I find that pulsing the fruit before adding everything else in makes it easier for it all to come together. Otherwise, I found that the fruit stays in big chunks.
- When I made my raspberry frozen yogurt, I found it easiest to mix in the chocolate chips after I distributed the mixture into the muffin tins. It makes it easier to ensure that each cup gets the same amount of add ins!
- If this stays in the freezer for longer than 2 hours, it can become very difficult to scoop. If that's the case, you may need to leave it out to soften prior to scooping if you're not using individual cups / muffin tins.
- Any kind of fruit can be used in place of the raspberries. For sweeter fruits like banana, mango, pineapple, less honey can be used to offset the sweetness
