I’ve recently discovered that I really like frozen yogurt. I don’t mean the kind in the ice cream section either. I mean an actual 6 oz container of yogurt that you put in the freezer. It happened by accident one day…
The fridge at work was set too cold and my yogurt was partially frozen. I was a little annoyed at first because I had intended to mix fresh blueberries into the yogurt, and it wouldn’t really mix because it was partially frozen. A co-worker commented that it looked like ice cream and that really changed my perspective about it! I put the semi-frozen yogurt on top of the blueberries and had a wonderful food adventure.
Since then, I’ve tried it a few times with several different flavors and I have not been disappointed! I buy the Weight Watchers brand yogurt because it has 3g fiber while most yogurts do not, but I assume it should work with the other kinds too! I will say that you should only freeze it for about 2 hours and then put it in the fridge for an hour or two for ease of eating. I froze mine too long the other day and then it was like rock hard ice cream. It was still good but not as easy to eat. I just had to thaw it at room temperature for a few minutes before I could start. You may prefer it more or less frozen than me. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
I like that it takes me longer to eat. I like that it feels more like a dessert. I like that it is icy yet creamy. I like that it’s better for me than ice cream but still gives me the sensation that I’m really having a treat. I don’t know if I’ll ever eat yogurt straight from the fridge again!
