Then, thanks to the balanced life, I found an alternative - frozen yogurt niblets! I decided to try it with Chobani 0% Vanilla. The process is ridiculously simple. Here is what you need:
3. Wax paper/parchment paper
4. Cookie sheet, or...
If you run out of wax paper, and your cookie sheet won't fit in your freezer (this happened when I attempted my second batch this morning), use a large lid to a plastic/glass container - I used one of my Pyrex lids.
5. A small container to store the niblets in. I used two snack sized plastic bags.
Here is what you do: Grab out a yogurt and give it a good stir with a spoon.
Using the spoon, drop about half a spoonful onto your cookie sheet, lined with wax paper.
Place in the freezer for two hours.
Quickly remove from wax paper and place into a container of your choice.
They aren't perfectly shaped, which is fine by me. I ate one bag a few hours before my run yesterday, and I was hooked. After my run, I ate the second bag. It was a nice treat, and it helped cool my body off.
This morning, I decided to make another batch with Chobani 0% Lemon, which is one of my favorite flavors. I'm actually eating them as I type this!
As I mentioned yesterday, I just started Weight Watchers, so this will be an awesome snack. Its frozen yogurt finger food! I also noticed that snacking with these little niblets made my yogurt last at least twice as long, and I didn't even eat them all in one sitting - whereas I always finish my yogurt container within fifteen minutes.
What are some of your favorite healthy frozen treats?
