Intro to Cooking: Fake Pinkberry

||

Is it just me or is life all around better when it’s sunny and fabulous outside?

All the constant sunshine makes me crave ice cream! But if you’re trying to be healthy and still can’t fight off your sweet tooth, fro-yo is a deliciously perfect, calorie-conscious substitute. Unfortunately, all these fro-yo shops popping up charge one-month’s rent for a small cup with a few berries sprinkled on top.

Stop wasting all that hard earned (or hard-begged-for) money, and start whipping this stuff up yourself. It’s cheaper and easier than you think. (Editor’s Note: Funny, that’s what someone said about me once….) This scrumptious recipe will sooth your throat, entice your taste buds, save you money and cool you off in the beautiful spring sun.

Frozen Yogurt (aka fake Pinkberry)

What You’ll Need:
2 cups nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup half and half

What You’ll Do:

1. Mix ingredients together with a hand mixer (or an ice cream maker if you happen to have one lying around that nasty college kitchen of yours…).
2. Freeze for an hour or more.
3. Serve with your favorite toppings: fresh fruit, yummy cereal [drool], chocolate chips, crushed up cookies [drool], etc.
4. Grab a book and a blanket and head outside to indulge in spring fro-yo bliss!

Tips: For an extra sweet taste, drizzle clover honey over your finished product. And for a green tea flavor (like Pinkberry’s) add some green tea powder into the mix!
