Banana Cream Frozen Yogurt
One of the biggest things that helped me with weight loss (32lbs so far) was switching out unhealthy food for something healthier. I really love my sweets, especially ice-cream but I made changes. Now I make my own frozen yogurt, one of my favorite recipes is my banana cream frozen yogurt.
You don’t need a bulky ice cream maker to enjoy delicious frozen treats at home. This homemade frozen yogurt consists of just a few ingredients and doesn’t require any churning or complicated equipment.
The secret to success with this recipe is finding the right balance between the tangy Greek yogurt and more mild cream cheese. If you use regular yogurt instead, you may want to use a little more because it is less creamy than Greek varieties.

Tip: Regular vanilla extract will affect the color of this dish. To prevent this, choose a clear vanilla extract instead. However, be sure to read labels carefully because most clear extracts are imitation.
