Rich and indulgent Chocolate Frozen Yogurt has a sweet-tart flavor and the perfect creamy, light consistency. This frozen yogurt is so easy to make — blend everything up, pour into an ice cream maker, and enjoy!
BLEND: Add all the ingredients to a large powerful blender and process until completely smooth. If the mixture is warmed up by blending, thoroughly chill it before adding to an ice cream maker.
ICE CREAM MAKER: Freeze the mixture in a prepared ice cream maker, according to the manufacturer's directions. (It takes my machine about 35-45 minutes to get to frozen yogurt consistency.) Enjoy the yogurt straight out of the ice cream maker. (It's our favorite way to enjoy it!)
FIRMER FROZEN YOGURT: If desired, transfer the mixture to an airtight container and into the freezer to further harden. Note that the longer it is in the freezer the icier the texture becomes.
Note 1: If not using the brand of yogurt listed in the recipe, you may need to adjust the level of sweetener. I recommend using a full-fat yogurt you like straight from the container; otherwise, you likely won't end up loving this frozen yogurt recipe.Note 2: Regular cocoa powder won’t give this yogurt the depth of flavor and chocolate intensity that Dutch-process will. The brand I’ve found most readily available at grocery stores is Hershey’s Special Dark. You’ll see on the label it’s “Dutched cocoa” which is what we’re looking for. My personal favorite is this Extra brute cocoa powder -- it has an amazingly robust flavor.
