It is time again for the “Secret recipe club” reveal! I am sure you all know what the club is about, but for the few of you who still don’t know about it, here goes a brief explanation. It is a great concept… each month you are assigned a participating food blogger to make a recipe from and in turn someone else will be assigned your blog. All you have to do is choose a recipe, make it and blog about it on the specified date. The only rule is to keep it a secret! If you are interested in learning more, or want to join the club, please visit the Secret recipe club website.
This month I was assigned Cook with Sara, written by the very talented Sara. Sara describes herself as a “midwestern girl who loves to cook AND eat” – I can relate to that… well, the second part of it at least! 🙂
I made her Strawberry Frozen Yogurt because I had been wanting to make frozen yogurt for forever and I had strawberries in my fridge. So, what better excuse to make it? It is a very easy recipe and it is absolutely delicious. The flavour of the strawberries is so intense that it feels like you are eating frozen strawberries. I loved it and I will definitely make it again this summer. It is a great treat for the kids (sans the alcohol) and it’s so much healthier than regular ice cream!
Thank you so much for this great recipe Sara! Please, make sure you drop by Sara at Cook with Sara and check out her beautiful site!
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt
The recipe for an easy and scrumptious Strawberry Frozen Yogurt!

Slice the strawberries into small pieces.
Toss them in a bowl with the sugar and vodka or kirsch (if using) until the sugar begins to dissolve. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours, stirring every so often.
Transfer the strawberries and their juice to a blender or food processor. Add the yogurt and lemon juice. Pulse the machine until the mixture is smooth.
Transfer to a freezer safe bowl and freeze until the desired consistency.
