We eat a lot of yogurt.
Let me rephrase that.
We used to eat a lot of yogurt.
In Germany, this was a common afternoon snack for our children. But this summer, with the temperatures over 100 in El Paso, I’ve favored fresh veggies and fruit – finger food type things that have very little clean up required. And can be eaten on the porch, in the pool, or carried out to the “club house” for a meeting of the three amigos.
So back to the yogurt at hand.
Or the hand at the yogurt?
Or the hand in the yogurt?
Ok. Time to regroup.
Recently while I was unpacking, I discovered my Kitchen Aid Ice Cream maker…
And then it hit me…
I do have a very important tip to remember.
PLEASE be sure to keep the mixer RUNNING as you add the yogurt!
The first batch I made, I dumped the yogurt in the bowl and THEN turned the mixer on? Yeah – almost broke the beater! It instantly FROZE solid! This resulted in me frantically scraping the partially frozen yogurt out of the mixer into a large bowl until it was empty enough to run properly. Then I slowly added the yogurt again one spoonful at a time.
I chose to add only the yogurt so it isn’t as sweet as the store bought frozen yogurt.
But the possibilites for adding fresh fruit or using flavored yogurt are endless!
What are your favorite “Maaah – aaahm!! It’s HOT outside!” snacks for your family?
What is your favorite flavor of frozen ice cream or yogurt?
Note: Did you notice the two syllable name my children have given me?
WHY do all children DO that when it’s hot outside?
