Sunday’s with Joy: Strawberry Cookie Dough Frozen Greek Yogurt

You know how every Monday I come here and gush over how amazing Joy is – – I tell you she’s cute and funny … and would make such a great best friend.

I plead that you should go out and buy her cookbook, because I read it as my bed time story

every.single.night.

to make sure I have sweet dreams.

Well, nothing is different this week, except – – I’m here to bring you my new-found love affair.

Sunday night got hot and heavy – – you heard me, it was an intense ménage a trois!!

Me

Strawberry Cookie Dough Frozen Greek Yogurt

And A spoon.

HOT HOT HOT

Please tell me you want in on this action!!

If frozen yogurt doesn’t get you hot a bothered, Joy made Strawberry Cookie Dough Ice Cream in her book – – get to know it.

I knew just reading the title alone I would be in BIG trouble if I made a batch of the ice cream.

So I made a couple of adjustments, ( just so I would feel okay about getting personal with it 😀 lol).

I made frozen Greek yogurt instead.

CreamyYES . RichYEESS . HealthySUREE.

I doubled the strawberries and diced them into small pieces. Fruit = health food. Added fruit = more FroYo for me   😀 

I halved the cookie dough – but cut them in tiny pieces so I still got tons of cookie dough in each bite.

It’s all about tricking yourself … and it worked.

The verdict: There’s no more yogurt left 😦 

For the complete ice cream recipe refer to Joy’s lovely cookbook bible.

  1. helllooooo mff (<– that's my new short-form for my favorite foodie, fyi), why do you have to use vodka to make frozen yogurt. i need some schooling 🙂

    1. LOL Sanju, I love you 😉 I find that when I use my ice cream maker and place the finished yogurt in a container to freeze, it always gets too icy. So I added the vodka – since vodka doesn’t freeze – to keep it smooth and creamy. I’m sure you could probably use gelatin instead or agar-agar.
      Even this was still a little icy, so next time – I may add a little more vodka, plus you don’t taste 😀

    1. Thank you my dear!! I think you may be in luck, a certain bloger I know may be giving one away VERY soon 😉 And this recipe is great for bikini season!! Best of both worlds if you ask me 😉
