HAPPY 100TH POST!!!  i can’t believe this is the 100th post, it seems like i just started writing a few months ago.  i just wanted to take a minute and thank you all for your continued support and for those newbies who are just joining in the fun here at three blondes and a tomas!  this blog (even though i’m not always on top of getting posts written) has kept me sane during the rollar coaster called grad school.  i have had such an amazing time coming up with recipes for you all, exploring new foods and continuing to grow as a chef, something i was afraid was not going to happen since i am no longer working in a kitchen everyday.  to celebrate this milestone, let’s celebrate with a little homemade nutella frozen yogurt, and thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your support and encouragement!!

as you all know, i am a nutella lover, through and through – this has been demonstrated through many posts already.  today’s post is yet another ode to my nutella love – homemade nutella frozen yogurt!  i have a bit of a sweet tooth, which i try to ignore most days, but sometimes my inner sweet tooth fairy is just too loud for my to ignore!  on those days i usually end up going to either cookies or ice cream.  this frozen yogurt is me trying to create a healthier option for myself, without having something that is loaded with a bunch of chemicals and preservatives ;)

this frozen yogurt was crazy easy to make – i didn’t even use an ice cream maker because i couldn’t find my ice cream bowl attachment for my kitchen aid so i had to wing it.  i literally threw the ingredients into a bowl, whisked them together and put the whole bowl into the freezer overnight, et voila, tangy, sweet frozen yogurt!

the beauty of this recipe is its simplicity – you could really make it any flavor your little heart desires by changing up a few ingredients.  you could leave out the nutella (gasp!!!), and put in 2 T lemon juice for a tart and tangy mixture, vanilla beans for a simpler take, or even mash some fruit up and mix it all together, the options are endless!

whisk all ingredients together until smooth.  place in a small metal bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  put in the freezer overnight to allow the mixture to set completely and enjoy!
