Summer: get into it, for it has finally arrived. Fresh fruit, juicy, ripe tomatoes and outdoor happy hours — can I get an amen? Warmer temperatures call for cooling foods and activity. This recipe for strawberry mint yogurt is not only healthier than ice cream, it is also easy to make.

If you're watching your waistline, or just want a lighter version of dessert, this recipe is for you. You do not need an ice cream maker or even heavy stirring arm. Use any fruit variation for the recipe — the sky is the limit. Regardless of what you choose, this is a great solution for a muggy afternoon, alongside a good air conditioner. Cheers to summer!
