Now that it is officially summer, the ring a ding ding of the ice cream trucks are a frequent sound in my neighborhood. They actually have a new tune for this summer – a fun little Caribbean tune! It makes me want ice cream so bad!!!! But in order to behave myself, I try to stay away.
So when I found this recipe, I was INCREDIBLY excited. If I can have my ice cream and eat it too, I will be one happy girl. This month’s issue of Self has a recipe for a homemade Fro Yo with all of my favorite flavors.
Peanut Butter, Chocolate and Banana Fro Yo – Serves 4
2 – 6 oz containers of nonfat vanilla Greek Yogurt, divided among ice cube tray sections and frozen
2 small ripe bananas, cut into 1/2 inch pieces and frozen
4 tsp natural peanut butter
4 tsp mini chocolate chips
In a blender or food processor, blend yogurt cubes and bananas on high, scraping down sides every minute, until mixture holds together, 3 minutes. Add peanut butter; blend on high until mixture is creamy, like soft-serve ice cream. Stir in chips. Serve immediately, sprinkled with cinnamon, if desired.
