I know, it’s not really the time of year that you see a lot of cold treats, but because this one actually turned out creamy and totally tasting like the real thing I had to post the recipe. I mean, don’t we all need a copycat Red Mango frozen yogurt recipe no matter what time of year it is?
I’ve always really enjoyed Red Mango because it tastes so fresh and I love all of the fruit choices to go on top. I almost always stick with plain topped with raspberries and mango. Creature of habit. Can’t help it.
The sweet tanginess is what you’re looking for here and do NOT try to use low fat or fat free yogurt, it wont work the same. Not in my opinion at least. Greek yogurt didn’t go well either, though I honestly thought it would be the best. Just start out with plain yogurt and 1 cup of sugar for every 4 cups of yogurt. That’s it. Nothing else. Whisk it, churn it, eat it. Or freeze it and it will still be amazing when you scoop it. Creamy deliciousness at a fraction of the cost. BOOM.
How Long Will Frozen Yogurt Keep?
Frozen yogurt will keep for 2-3 months in the freezer.
Is Frozen Yogurt Healthier Than Ice Cream?
Frozen yogurt has fewer calories and is lower in saturated fat than regular ice cream.
The calories and saturated fat are about the same for low fat ice cream and frozen yogurt.
How do you Know if a Mango is Ripe?
Hold it in your hand and squeeze with the palm of your hand.
If the mango intents slightly, it is probably ripe.
If it is hard, it will need time to ripen.
If it is squishy, it is overripe.
