Notes for your dairy-free frozen yogurt
After combining the frozen yogurt in your food processor, you may find that the consistency isn’t smooth and the fruit is too frozen to break down completely. If this happens, add some dairy-free milk one tablespoon at a time until it blends up to a smooth and even texture.
Between the sweetener in the dairy-free yogurt and the natural sugars in the frozen fruit, you might find that your frozen yogurt it sweet enough with just these two ingredients.
After blending up these two main ingredients and getting it to a consistency you’re happy with, taste test the yogurt to determine if you want to add any additional sweetener. If so, you can add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup or honey.
