I know we've mostly been posting smoothie recipes this week (and summer, in general). However, this one is worth posting because it's really, REALLY fun. Note: It's still in semi-development, but refreshing enough -- as-is -- to share today.
Frozen Greek yogurt -- strawberry style. Tart. Delicious. And at least five steps up from our last attempted version.
What I'll tell you first is that you can't freeze this for seconds once you make it. At least I don't think so. It will get hard as a rock, more like a popsicle.
But that shouldn't stop you from trying it out.
Get ready for it . . . because all you need are two ingredients. Greek yogurt and frozen strawberries. I imagine any other frozen fruit would work well, too. You'll also need a good blender. We're still loving our Ninja and highly recommend it as the poor-(never home)maker's Vitamix.
- Just blend together 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (plain) with 1/2 cup frozen fruit.
- Keep scraping down the bits of fruit until it's all combined.
- Once smooth, add in another 1/4 cup frozen fruit and continue blending to achieve the best frozen consistency.
This recipe is "still in development" because you have to eat it FAST. Even throughout the course of taking these photos, it started melting, which is why in this last shot it looks a little soupy. I also wouldn't recommend putting in the wheat berries -- that was just my sorry excuse to call this dish breakfast.
Happy last weekend of summer. We're off to relax!
