I am really happy to have begun a relationship with Zoku. All opinions and words are 100% mine!

I almost feel guilty telling y’all I’ve sat on this recipe. From the first bite, I knew it would be my go-to flavor for this summer. The sweet honey mixed with the tangy creamy yogurt brought me back to Saturday mornings at the farmer’s market back in Knoxville. I’ve been meaning to post this for weeks, but I had to photograph it before my family gobbled it up. This ice cream tastes SO fresh. Since it is made with whole greek yogurt, it truly has the texture of creamy ice cream (so don’t think of the chemically laden fat-free fro-yo stuff). Who knew delicious healthy ice cream existed?!
And if we are pretending that you really need one more reason to make this, then remember you’re basically be eating something nutritious for dessert. My whole family shared this bowl (my kids are still really little), but if I wanted to eat the whole thing I wouldn’t have felt the least bit guilty.
My Honest Review of the Zoku Ice Cream Maker:
I made my ice cream with a Zoku Ice Cream Maker, and y’all, this is my new favorite kitchen tool. I love that it’s so small. It really helps with the whole moderation thing. It’s really easy to use and requires no motor, which means I don’t have to worry about anything breaking (not that we are hard on anything in this house). Henry (age four) can help too! I just keep the bowl in the freezer ready to go.
It’s really important to me that I give you honest reviews, so I’ve been racking my brain for a “con” to give you. The only thing I could come up with is the fact that if you want it a more frozen consistency, then you need to put your ice cream back in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up.
Don’t Have a Zoku Ice Cream Maker?
If you don’t have a Zoku ice cream maker, then just make popsicles! You may want to double the recipe, though. Just stir everything together and pour into dixie cups. Cover with foil and place popsicle sticks into them! Freeze for 8 hours. Please report back and let us know how they worked.
- 1 cup of plain (whole milk) Greek yogurt
- 5 strawberries hulled and diced
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- Dice the strawberries.
- Combine the honey and yogurt in a medium bowl.
- Pour into the ice cream bowl.
- Slowly mix in the strawberries.
- Using the Zoku spoon scrap the sides of the bowl continuously for about ten minutes.
- Serve (if you would like it firmer than soft serve put it back in the freezer for ten minutes).
Be sure to use WHOLE Greek yogurt here. Nonfat will not work. Don't stir the honey into the yogurt inside the frozen bowl. Stir in a separate container first. You don't want frozen honey on the sides!
