Banana, Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt

Banana and strawberry frozen yoghurtBanana, Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt

Quick and simple dessert or snack. This one is great for the kids. No worrying about time. This treat is ready in less than 5 minutes.

Whenever the strawberries are in danger of spoiling or the bananas in the fruit bowl have seen better days, I quickly transfer them to the freezer for calling upon for a recipe such as this. With the fruit already frozen, all I need to do is add a little yoghurt to the mix, blend and serve.

I think there is enough sweetness to tempt young taste buds from the fruit alone but you can always add a little honey to taste.
