Frozen strawberry yogurt
What could be better than a cold dessert in hot summer? Especially
if it’s natural homemade strawberry yogurt! After all, it is not only
low-calorie but also much more useful than purchased counterparts.
Frozen yogurt is better than ice cream because the latter
contains heavy cream, sugar, flavor enhancers and preservatives. We
recommend making it at home since refined sugar is usually added in large
quantities to factory frozen yogurt.

Take a strawberry by the stalk (the green part of the berry) and
