*Fat-Free Frozen Mango Yogurt

Fat-Free Frozen Mango Yogurt

This is a fat-free,healthy and a yummy recipe with a touch of mint and strawberry jam which really adds to the taste. Do try this recipe for sure.I am sure you will love it.... Yogurt is a fermented dairy product made by adding bacterial cultures to milk, which causes the transformation of the milk's sugar, lactose, into lactic acid. It is a rich source of many important nutrients including Calcium,phosphorous,proteins,vitamins B-2, B-12, zinc,potassium and many more.For more details click here.



  • If you are using fresh curd and mangoes,mix together and freeze them.
  • Puree the above frozen mix in a blender with the remaining ingredients,except the sugar.
  • Blend them thoroughly.
  • Taste and add in as much sugar as per your taste.
  • Pour the mixture into a container and put it in a freezer.When serving remove from the frozen curd from the freezer and let it stand for 15-20 minutes at room temperature or else it will be too hard.
  • Note: You can keep the yogurt in the freezer for up to a week, in a covered container.
