Summer’s Ending, Make Frozen Yogurt

It’s already the middle of September, and the Pumpkin Spice Latte is already back at Starbucks. I guess that means summer is wrapping up, huh? Well it hasn’t completely started cooling down yet, so I think we can get away with one more batch of frozen yogurt before switching pumpkin-and-apple-flavor-everything.

This weekend has been the most productive couple of days… There was the first home football game  of the season, a complete shut out by our boys! My suitemates switched up roommates, (lots of heavy furniture moving involved) and now I have a wonderful new roomie! The Price is Right Live show was a fun and different way to start a Saturday night, but I sadly walked away empty handed. Then there was my first strength training workout, my first James Bond movie (a homework assignment- I would rather be watching old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy) and a ridiculous amount of homework plus some other fun stuff here and there. I wasn’t ready for this Monday morning alarm clock but here I am, hair curled and all, ready to share a super-healthy-super-sweet-summer-dessert : )

You will need:

1 1/2 Cups Vanilla non-fat Greek Yogurt

1 Cup fresh strawberries, diced

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

1 chocolate bar, broken into pieces

6 graham crackers, broken not crushed

*An ice cream maker

1. Heat diced strawberries, water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until they start to soften. Drain and refrigerate until cool.

2. Once the strawberries are cold, stir in the greek yogurt.

3. Pour yogurt mixture into the ice cream maker and allow to mix together in the machine for 20 minutes.

4. By hand, mix in the graham cracker and chocolate pieces; place the whole bowl in the freezer for at least 60 minutes before serving.

Now we can welcome autumn. Onto all things cinnamon & spice :)
