Strawberry Yogurt Ice Cream

Hi Everyone,

Happy Sunday!  Today’s post is a delicious one.  Something my friend Connie told me I should do, I took her idea and ran with it!  he he It’s so good!  But first, you know what I did on Saturday?  I went to Trader Joe’s!!  It’s been almost two weeks since I shopped and that’s not a good thing.  I was running out of everything!  I’m trying to do better on my food budget, since I spend so much, but because I was out of stuff, I spent almost $150.00, eck!!!  Oh well, it’ all good stuff and stuff that will get me through the week!

Whenever I hit up Trader Joe’s I always try to get at least a few new items, so there are a few hidden in there.  Can you guess what ones?  You catch them on my Trader Joe’s page!   I bet from the picture you can tell some of the recipes I’ll be sharing this week.  I bet you can tell I have been craving fruit.  I don’t know what wrong with me, I just want fruit!  Lots of sweet fruit!

Now for my creamy delicious strawberry yogurt ice cream.

One thing you must know about me, when it comes to food I have no patience!  You should let this ice cream sit out for about 20 – 30 minutes for it to get real creamy and soft, but I couldn’t wait for that, I had to try it.  So if you make this, wait if you can!!

The reason I created this, was I wanted ice cream, I wanted mousse and I didn’t want to go to the store.  So I took 1 strawberry container of Chobani Strawberry Greek Yogurt and 1 container of Chobani Vanilla Greek Yogurt, mixed it with one tub of fat-free Cool Whip and threw in some diced strawberries, popped it in the freezer and a few hours later I have this!

This ice cream will be perfect for when the summer months come!  It tastes just like strawberry ice cream.  I am so happy with this, that I can’t wait to make another one in a different flavor.  However I don’t know if I can top strawberry.  As you may be able to tell, it’s one of my favorite, if not my favorite fruit!!

You know what else I love about this recipe?  No ice cream maker needed!  I do plan on buying one, I just haven’t had the chance.  I saw a nice one by Cusinart at Bed Bath and Beyond, I’m just waiting for my 20% off coupon that I’ll get in the mail.  Imagine all of my crazy concoctions that I get to eat and share with you!!  Do you see peanut butter ice cream?  Dam it, now I guess that is the next one I’ll make, but this style!  I can’t wait for an ice cream maker to have peanut butter ice cream!!!

Wasn’t that easy?  Love easy!  Love fast and I love tasty!!  I love my new found love for flavored yogurt!  Certainly beats just eating plain!

I also got my PB2 in the mail and it’s weird.  I am not sure what to do with it.  I haven’t tried it because, well I’m kind of scared to, but I will.  I’m thinking of some recipes that I want to make with it.  Have you ever used PB2?  Will I like it?  After making my own Peanut Butter, not sure if anything will top or match it.  But if I don’t try I’ll never know and it’s only 45 calories for 2 tablespoons, which is pretty nice.

I’m also pleased to announce that this week I finally went over my calorie burned for exercising this week.  I cheated and went on the scale to see if I lost anything, notta!  I have till Monday to lose a pound, if I don’t, than real peanut butter here I come.  This was a very hard strike for me!!!  Thank goodness I got those cookies from Spiffy Cookie on Friday.  It helped with the cravings.  I guess that could be considered a cheat?

My exercises for last week:

Sunday:  40 minutes full body circuit training, 1 mile walk and gardening (I pulled weeds for over an hour.)
