You know those nights when you're craving something sweet and cold late at night, but just can't justify getting into your car for a DQ run? Not to mention the calories-guilt when you're done binging?
Don't ask me how I know about this.....
Well, here is a quick and healthy way to keep the ice cream cravings at bay.
All you need are a blender, frozen berries, yogurt (I used plain Greek) and some honey. How simple is that?
I got this from Pinterest and Jamie Oliver.
If you have a blender like mine (read: crappy), you will need to stop a few times to mix it together. I swear to myself every time I make something in the blender that I will invest in a new one.
Add honey/maple syrup to taste. Use the minimum if you like a tarter yogurt and more if you like it sweeter. You know, rocket science and all. You can make without the mint, but it really adds a nice flavor and freshness.
1-Minute Frozen Yogurt
1 cup yogurt (I used plain Greek, but use any that you have)
2 cups frozen berries
1 cup fresh berries (I used blueberries)
2-3 tablespoon honey or real maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
A few Mint sprigs
Add 2 serving glasses to the freezer.
When glasses are nice and cold, add yogurt, mint and honey (or maple syrup) to blender. Blend. Add frozen berries and blend until combined.
Add fresh berries to the bottom of each glass and top with frozen yogurt and serve.
