After making Dairy Free Yogurt, I was so excited to be eating yogurt again that I had to make lots of other recipes that featured it. I overheard some people talking about their favorite frozen yogurt shop and I instantly knew that would be a perfect way to use Dairy Free Yogurt. I polled the Living Low Carb…One Day at a Time Facebook page and one of their favorite flavors was Pecan Pie Frozen Yogurt. I had never even heard of a Pecan Pie Frozen Yogurt, but I figured it would be great just in time for Thanksgiving!
I put all of the flavors of your favorite holiday Pecan Pie, into this creamy, dairy free frozen yogurt. It’s the perfect way to enjoy all the flavors of the holiday season in one easy to make dessert.
