I am a total chocoholic, which is why I decided to give up chocolate for Lent. It is so hard! I have always been the type of person who enjoys having something a little sweet after dinner, and in my mind a Dove chocolate or 2 was never a bad thing. Since I have taken the leap and given it up for right now, I have had to get a little clever with my sweet cravings. Tonight I made “frozen yogurt” and it was tasty, refreshing, light, and delicious. Bananas are always a great base when making mock “frozen yogurt”. For tonights version, I added blueberries and a little carb controlled light vanilla yogurt. I would definitely recommend making this in big batches and saving it in your freezer for the next time you need a little sweet after-dinner snack! Enjoy!
Blueberry Banana Frozen Yogurt
- 2 over-ripe bananas, sliced and placed in the freezer for a least a couple of hours
- 3/4 cup frozen wild blueberries
- 2-3 Tbsp carb controlled light vanilla yogurt
In a blender, add all of your ingredients and blend until smooth (I left a few blueberry chunks, but blend until you reach the consistency you like!). You are going to have to stop and stir the ingredients frequently until the blueberries begin to break down. Try to get your yogurt closest to the blade, it will help! Also, each time you stop, scoop the blended content to the top and push down the bigger chunks of fruit. This dessert is delicious on its own, but some toppings to also consider adding could but nuts such as slivered almonds or pecans, granola, a few white chocolate chips (if you can eat chocolate, unlike me at the moment), or a dash of cinnamon and drizzle of honey!
