Keep Cool With Do-It-Yourself Yogurt This Summer

I’m a huge fro-yo fan, and my dream job may be taste-testing at the Ben & Jerry’s factory in Vermont, but sometimes it’s good to keep your calories in check when you’re craving something chilly for the summer. You know…with bathing suits and super tight dresses, and all.

And so, I bring you a ridiculously easy Yogurt Mousse to curb that sweet tooth without giving up on the flava.

What you will need:

½ cup plain nonfat yogurt

½ cup light Cool Whip

1 capful flavored extract of your choice (Vanilla or almond are great, lemon and orange aren’t bad if you’re craving fruit)

Sprinkle of Sweet and Low to taste

How to do it:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add Sweet and Low as desired (if desired at all). Yeah, it’s that easy.

Mix it up:

If you want it lighter and fluffier, add more whipped cream. Feeling adventurous? Add sliced/chopped berries to the mix, or go with a flavored yogurt rather than using extract. To make this even more delicious, pop a bowl of the mix in the freezer. If you want a little pie, buy a pre-made graham cracker crust (or make your own) and spoon this mixture in it, then freeze until hard.

It’s quite literally mouthwatering.
