Strawberry Froyo

29 Jun

This recipe was time consuming, but the ice cream was pretty yummy. The kids loved it.  I’ll probably make this again, but it’s a weekend recipe (takes some time).  Please keep in mind that this recipe is finicky.  You have to let it freeze just the right amount of time, and it has to be eaten right away, and it’s a lot of work… but i’m glad i made it.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1 1/4 cups 1% milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 TBSP Splenda no-calorie sweetener
  • 1 Cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 TBSP honey

Directions:  

1. Place strawberries in a small food processor and puree until only small chunks remain.

2. Combine yogurt, splenda, vanilla and honey in a bowl. Mix in strawberries and 1/2 cup milk.

3. Pour mixture into a gallon-sized zip-top freezer bag. Lay the bag flat, and spread the mixture into an even layer pressing to eliminate air pockets. Close the bag and lay it flat on a shelf in the freezer.

4. Freeze the mixture 3-4 hours

5. Remove the bag from thee freezer and break the mixture into small pieces.

6. Place the pieces in the bowl of a food processor; add remaining milk and blend until smooth.

7. Pour ice cream into an 8×4 bread pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and return to freezer.

8.  Freeze for 1-2 hours, and serve immediately.  If you freeze it longer, and it gets too hard to scoop, let it sit on the counter for 5-10 minutes or until it’s scoopable.

Editors Note: I actually added 1 drop of red food coloring before freezing the first time.  You don’t have to, but i liked the color 🙂

Faux Fried Ice Cream

2 Dec

I found this recipe on www.skinnytaste.com and it’s so good. I was looking for something fun to do with the kids, and here you have it. It was good enough that I bought more ice cream to make this again in the future.

Ingredients:
– 3 cups of Edy’s double churn vanilla bean ice cream
– 2 cups of corn flakes cereal
– 3 tsp cinnamon

– 6 tsp honey
– 6 tbsp. lite Hershey’s syrup

Directions:

1. Scoop out 6 1/2 cup portions of vanilla ice cream. Round them into balls, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. Place these in the freezer for 2 hours or until they are very hard.

2. Place cinnamon and cereal in the food processer and blend until well crushed. Place in a freezer size baggie.

3. Roll each individual scoop of ice cream in cereal mixture until completely coated.

4. Drizzle each scoop with 1 tsp of honey, and 1 tbsp. of hersey’s lite syrup.

5. You can add whipped topping, nuts, cherries, whatever you like here… I’d encourage you to explore. However, this is where my fried ice cream ended, so this is what my calories will be composed of. (actually I added a few slivered almonds not accounted for here)
