Frozen Yogurt With Mint And Chocolate Chip

 My cravings for frozen treats usually hits all time high around this time of the year. This frozen yogurt with mint  and chocolate chip could rival Pinkberry's! Seriously, you have to try it to believe it. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the cream- yogurt mixture prior to turning on the ice cream maker. The minty  and cream balance was just right.

The recipe calls for rice syrup but maple syrup or honey can be used  in its place. Add in your fave chopped chocolate, we love dark chocolate here but go ahead and use whatever  chocolate your heart desires :)

Frozen Yogurt With Mint And Chocolate Chip adapted from here
2 oz dark chocolate - chopped
2 cup whole milk Greek yogurt ( unsweetened)
1 cup fresh mint
1 cup cream
1/2 cup plus 2 tb brown rice syrup

Heat cream in a saucepan and add chopped mint . Bring cream to a simmer, add rice syrup,stir and  turn off heat.  Leave cream - mint mixture to steep for at least half an hour.

Pour cream in a strainer to remove chopped mint. Add yogurt to steeped cream  and mix well. Chill in fridge  30 mins to overnight. Churn mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instruction. . Once frozen yogurt is ready, add in chopped chocolate. Store in freezer until ready to serve.
