1.) I LOVE ice cream. It's one food I could eat daily if it wasn't a million calories in each pint.
2.) I HATE wasting food. It's like throwing money in the garbage. And I am a penny pincher!
3.) It's getting warmer out!!!
Those three things inspired THIS:
Last night my son had a greek yogurt with his dinner. He liked it but ate all his pasta first so he was full and didn't finish the yogurt. I didn't want to throw out the rest and covering it with foil is pointless because it usually just ends up in the trash anyways. I've wanted to freeze greek yogurt for awhile now to enjoy like I would ice cream so what better time.
I put the rest in two cupcake liners, topped with some dark chocolate chips because my "ice cream" flavors always need some sort of chocolate in them and put them in a baggie in the freezer.
When we got home from school/work I took them out and they looked great! The liners came off fine and they smelled amazing, I used coconut yogurt. I let them sit in a bowl for a little so they weren't as hard.
Perfect snack for me and my son. They are toddler approved! Can't wait to make different kinds as the weather gets warmer and warmer. My new ice cream substitute! Yum.
I think I will get small containers for the freezer and make this in bigger batches. :)
