Fresh raspberries may be used, but they need to be frozen until firm to achieve the proper soft-serve consistency.

Make Ahead: The plain yogurt needs to be frozen for 30 minutes before blending. The soft-serve is best on the day it's made.

Servings: 1

Yield: Makes 3/4 cup (1 serving)

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek-style nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen (unsweetened) raspberries (see headnote)
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar/syrup (optional)


Freeze the yogurt for 30 minutes.

Transfer to a mini food processor or blender. Add the raspberries and powdered stevia; blend until smooth. Taste, and add stevia or agave nectar, if desired.

Serve right away.
