Healthy yogurt ice cream

Ice cream craving after long bike touring trip means get busy and make some healthy yogurt ice cream.

Here's what you need for two servings:

1/2 T. grassfed gelatin softened in 1 T. water
6 ounces milk beverage of your choice
1 vanilla bean
stevia or other sweetener of choice
1 1/2 cup Greek yogurt or other yogurt of choice
optional toppings

Here's what you do:

Soften the gelatin in water for five minutes. Set aside. Warm until steaming the milk, vanilla bean and sweetener. Whisk in the gelatin. Let stand for 10 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean and cool mixture to room temperature.
Whisk in the yogurt. Freeze the mixture for 45 minutes in a shallow pan.

Once frozen to soft-serve consistency, serve with your favorite toppings to satisfy your ice cream craving with a healthy treat.
