Maple-Cranberry Topped Frozen Yogurt

Low in fat and in sugar, this Maple-Cranberry Topped Frozen Yogurt recipe tastes like a million bucks—and takes 2.6 days off your RealAge.

Preparation Time:  5 minutes
Cooking Time:  8 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:


1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1 cup fresh orange juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup, such as Trader Joe’s 100% maple syrup
1 1/3 cups low fat vanilla frozen yogurt
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel


Combine the cranberries, orange juice and dried cranberries in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 7 to 8 minutes or until cranberries are popped and sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat; stir in syrup. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled over frozen yogurt. Garnish with orange peel.


2 teaspoons of Cointreau, Grand Mariner or Triple Sec, splashed over the top add an elegant touch of alcohol. Try any or all. Combining fresh and dried fruit is an easy way to double flavor—fresh fruit always has more juiciness, and dried fruit always has more sweetness. Together, they pack a flavor wallop.


Coffee frozen yogurt may replace the vanilla and dried cherries may replace the cranberries. If you use coffee frozen yogurt, and can find a great tasting brand, you can use fat free yogurt; if you use vanilla, choose a 1% fat variety instead of fat free.
