National Soyfoods Month
In celebration of April’s National Soyfoods Month I’m bringing you an awesome Vegan Mocha Frozen Yogurt! It’s dairy free, vegan, healthy, and super yummy!
Sometimes a recipe comes out so yummy that I simply can’t wait to devour all of it! This one is like that. I had a hard time waiting to take the photos because I wanted to eat all of this Mocha Frozen Yogurt!
Make this for yourself, soon!! You’ll be happy you did!
It’s super creamy, with a nice tang from the yogurt. The chocolate and espresso add a nice richness.
I use soy in a lot of my day-to-day cooking. From meatless crumbles that I substitute for ground beef in recipes, to soy milk, to these soy yogurts.
It’s really easy to change out dairy and meat for these great tasting soy alternatives.
I’ll often switch tofu instead of chicken in a recipe (tofu is great with a sauce because it takes on those flavors really well!).
Silken tofu or soy yogurt can replace sour cream, mayo, or cream cheese in smoothies, dips, puddings, or pie fillings.
I learned a lot in reading about soy for this post. Did you know that soy is packed with high quality protein and produced in an earth-friendly way? “Soy is a lean protein and contains less saturated fat than most other protein sources and naturally has no cholesterol. It’s the only protein recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its role in reducing cardiovascular disease.” So it’s heart healthy. And, using soy in your recipes can reduce calories, cholesterol, and fat while adding iron, fiber, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Soy is Environmentally Friendly; “In terms of sustainability, soy uses fewer natural resources such as water and land than any other protein. Soybeans offer 941 pounds of protein per acre of land. On average, land requirements for meat-protein production are 10 times greater than for plant-protein production.” And, in case you didn’t know, this environmental issue is one of the main reasons I became a vegetarian so many years ago.

Mocha Frozen Yogurt Recipe
Mocha Frozen Yogurt
- 1 ¼ cups sugar
- 1 ½ cups Vanilla Silk Soy Creamer
- 4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate chopped into small pieces
- 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
- 3 containers Vanilla Silk Soy Yogurt (5.3 ounce each, about 1 ½ cups)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Place sugar, Silk Soy Creamer, chocolate, and espresso powder in a heavy medium saucepan, over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves and the chocolate is melted. Remove from heat, and allow to cool. Stir in the Vanilla Silk Soy Yogurt and the vanilla extract. Cover and refrigerate until cold, or overnight.
- Stir the chilled mixture, and freeze in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions. When finished, the frozen yogurt will be soft but ready to eat. For firmer frozen yogurt, transfer to a freezer safe container, and freeze at least 2 hours.

I did not know soy was so environmentally “efficient” to produce (compared to meat). And that dessert looks downright dangerous, if I were left alone with it.
Pinned this one – talk about creamy deliciousness!. And that it is dairy free & vegan?!! Can’t wait to try!!
This is a frozen treat I wouldn’t mind indulging in every day! Dairy free milks are so creamy, I love using them in chilled desserts especially. This sounds wonderful! xo, Catherine
