Cookies and Cream Soft Serve Frozen Yogurt (Fro-Yo)

IMG_1439

Frrroooo-yoooooo.

Does it bother you when people say the shorter version of an actual word. I once called hot chocolate Ho-Cho, and my husband asked me how was my life so busy, that I couldn’t just say hot chocolate. He might have a point … I’m also not 13 … buuutt I’m not 130!!

But FroYo might be different, it’s a thing now – no one actually says frozen yogurt. Well, unless you’re an actual adult and sophisticated and things. Mostly the things part.

How sophisticated are we actually talking, if I stuffed what could have potentially been a healthy snack with chunks of chocolate and oreo cookies?! – you be the judge.

Cookies & Cream Soft Serve Frozen Yogurt (Fro-Yo)

  • 2 cups plain, full-fat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1/2 cup mini oreos
  • 1 cup cadbury cookies and cream bar ( any cookies and cream chocolate bar would work just as well) chopped.
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Place the yogurt, honey, and vanilla in large bowl.
  2. beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy ( approximately 3 minutes)
  3. stir in mini oreos and chopped chocolate.
  4. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture into a saran wrapped loaf pan. Cover with cling wrap, and freeze for 45 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the freezer, and stir mixture ( the corners will start to freeze first, combine with the liquid centre).
  6. Cover again, and place in the freezer for 3 more hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

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.
