Soooo you’re all probably wondering how the Great Ice Cream Embargo of July 2012 went. You know, that time last month when I lost my mind and decided to give up the hard (frozen) stuff for the entirety of the hottest month of the year?
Yeah. I didn’t make it through the whole month.
However, the goal I was really trying to meet was to not spend so much money on frozen treats, and to remove them from my daily intake. I did achieve that goal, but took some help from Mark.
Every time I threw up my hands and said, “Screw it. Let’s go to Orange Leaf!” He asked, “Now, Calee, do you want to lie to your loyal blog readers?” And most of the time, my answer was “No.” Once the answer was a resounding, “YES!” But after I realized that I could come clean with you all in August, like I am today, I found myself wondering into Orange Leaf a couple more times. But not 2-3 times a week like I had been. Win!
That all brings me here. To this recipe. A recipe that I’ve been withholding from you for more than a month. I made this frozen yogurt back in June (yes. June). And it has been sitting in my freezer begging to be photographed, and then shared with the world, because that’s how we bloggers do things.
I can’t think of a frozen yogurt more appropriate for summer than piña colada — rum included. Sorry I kept it from you all for so long. But summer isn’t quite over yet.
Pina Colada Frozen Chobani (fro cho)
- 32 oz. Chobani plain 0% yogurt (you could use 2% if you want a creamier yogurt)
- 2 c canned or fresh pineapple pieces
- 8 oz rum of choice
- 1-2 c sweetened coconut flakes — depends on how flakey you are
- Mix ingredients together in a large bowl. I use an immersion blender to get them really mixed together. Alternatively, you could pour into a regular blender and blend together.
- Pour into ice cream maker.
- Follow directions on your ice cream maker and freeze to desired consistency.
And for those who are interested, here is the nutrition information I got based on when I entered into Livestrong — it’s based on this recipe making 10 servings:
Have you made frozen yogurt or ice cream before? What’s your favorite summer treat?
