homemade nutella frozen yogurt for the 100th post!!!
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!
24oz container Greek yogurt (mine was honey flavored, but you could use plain as well)
1/4 cup sugar
1 T vanilla extract
2 T nutella
1/4 t salt
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!
