Mango-Avo-Lemo-Choco Froyo

By June 5, 2014Fitness, Fuel
Have you ever noticed that frozen yogurt is highly addictive?  Every time that I go to a froyo shop, I want to go back the next day, and again the next, and the next…It’s just so sweet, tart, tangy, and light. 
So, I decided to outsmart the frozen yogurt vendors by making my own froyo at home.  This way, I don’t get overwhelmed by the dozens of flavors and toppings, and I don’t worry about how much my yogurt weighs.  While I do love to support the local shops, the daily froyo habit can get a bit pricey.  Homemade froyo is a less-expensive alternative.
Mango-avocado-lemon-chocolate chip, and chocolate peanut butter are both high on my homemade favorites list:

If you are looking for something with less fruit, and more…CHOCOLATE…
