home made frozen yogurt cupcakes !! 30 calories!

SO YESTERDAY IT WAS HOT AS BALLS IN NEW YORK CITY.

The beginning of death-by-humidity-and-chaffing season here.

ANYWAY- we had a friend over for lunch and we bbq’d so kept it pretty calorie light ( grilling always does, that makes me happy)…but i wanted to make a dessert that didn’t require baking and TURNING THE OVEN ON-UGHHHHHH)

SO I WHIPPED THESE UP! they were SO FAST and SO easy:

YOGURT: i used about 9 oz of plain 0% greek yogurt, that i mixed with a little vanilla extract, and literally a tbsp (which was more than enough) of sugar free/fat free vanilla jello pudding mix. that sweetened it right up, made it taste like CAKE! SO good, and keeps the sugar and cals out of the yogurt. I think the original recipe called for any vanilla yogurt. You can use WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT!

  1. I PUREED, in my food processor: (see photo) 1 banana and about 8 strawberries.
  2. fill half the cups with yogurt, top with the purree so no white is showing
  3. top with a dollop of either yogurt, or whipped cream- ( i did half and half. the whipped cream freezes deliciously, but i think i’ll stick with the yogurt to keep cals down.)
  4. FREEZE for about an hour

the first round we ate a little prematurely, but the outside was froen and the inside was gooey. i honestly preferred it this way, they were DELICIOUS. and the fruit froze perfectly. The second round we ate, were completely frozen. i say let them thaw out for 10 minutes before actually eating. I’d like to experiment with putting these on pops, or sticks.

SO GOOD! enjoy!

    I’m gonna have to try these. I have been looking for some deserts that don’t break the calorie bank, and these are the most appetizing sounding things I’ve found yet!

  2. Looks awesome. I will definitely be trying these out. šŸ™‚
