This chocolate chip cookie dough frozen yogurt is so dreamy creamy and tastes just like cookie dough. So incredibly easy to make, you’ll be asking yourself why you haven’t made it before!
Lately I’ve been busting out the fatty jogging bottoms way too often. It’s funny that said jogging bottoms are designed with exercise in mind, yet they’re quite the opposite in this house! In fact, I think my waistline is expanding. I’ve always been one of those peeps that can eat anything in sight and not gain and ounce. That is, until lately, I’ll be 33 in less than a months time and I think my age is catching up with my metabolism. Boo hoo!
With this in mind, I’ve been looking at ways in which I can still have my sugar fix without outgrowing the fatty pants. Oh, and did I mention that lately the giant man-baby looks as though he’s swallowed a soccer ball? Umm, yep.
And I think it’s all my fault. He should be thankful he has such a wonder woman that caters to his dessert needs!
To rectify this ever expanding problem, *pun intended* I bring you chocolate chip cookie dough frozen yogurt. This tastes so insanely creamy and just like cookie dough that you wouldn’t even know it’s not laden with calorific ice cream instead! It really is that good!
Instead of using cows milk yogurt, I used St Helen’s Farm Natural Goats Milk Yogurt. It’s deliciously fresh from their farm (did I mention they have 27 years of experience?), all natural, full of live friendly bacteria to aid with digestion and keep things running smoothly inside, and the price isn’t too bad too for the large 450g pot.
If you have allergies to cows milk, this is such a great alternative. I couldn’t tell the difference and I’m a big yogurt fan myself. In fact, the only problem I came across is that there are only two major supermarkets that stock this yogurt – Sainsbury’s and Tesco. I found it odd that Sainsbury’s only stocked the large size, and Tesco the small.
I’ve been kicking myself asking why I haven’t made this before. It literally only takes around 15 minutes to make, then you bung it in the freezer – that’s it! No ice cream maker needed, no cooking, so easy! I’ll be keeping this in my freezer throughout the summer now… possibly forever!
