Last week was hot and I had a ton to do each day. One night after dinner I was in the mood for a sweet treat that wouldn’t make me feel gross for eating it. I LOVE what I came up with.

I searched frozen yogurt recipes and came across one of my favorite blogs: 101 Cookbooks .

This blog of one of those go-to blogs full of great, healthy, natural recipes!

I modified the recipe I found and it turned out like this:


Strawberry Pinkish Yogurt

  • 2 c. strained plain vanilla non-fat yogurt (The original recipe called for full fat but I didn’t want to use that)
  • 1.5 tblsp agave nectar
  • fresh fruit
  • splash almond milk to moisten the yogurt and add volume
  1. Mix strained yogurt with agave and place in an ice cream maker – or KitchenAid ice cream attachment, like I used
  2. Follow directions for ice cream maker adding yogurt/agave mixture
  3. Mix for about 15 min. until semi-frozen
  4. Add berries and continue mixing until desired thickness has been reached.


I ate mine with some almond butter drizzled on!

This weekend I wanted to make something fun for dessert for our cookout on Sunday. I debated between many things but decided on ice cream sandwiches because we were heading to a baseball game after dinner.

Homemade Low -fat Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

  • 1 pouch of cookie mix – any kind
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 container vanilla (or any flavor) yogurt
  1. Make cookies using applesauce instead of oil and egg whites instead of eggs. Use a large cookie sheet to spread the dough thin instead of a 9×13. Bake for less time than directed.
  2. When the cookies are done, let them cool.
  3. Use a cookie cutter of your choice to cut the cookies out. You will need to 2 cookies per ice cream sandwich (duh, 🙂 )
  4. Put a big spoonful of softened yogurt onto the cookie and place the 2nd cookie on top.
  5. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in the freezer until ready to eat.
