Don’t ask me why but I just love being in my kitchen, whipping up goodies for my family.
I love feeding my family and I love feeding them well. I love knowing the quality and love that goes into the foods I serve them and I love finding ways for them to have their cake and eat it too with recipes that nourish them.
Okay, in this case, we’re not talking cake and no, it’s not ice cream BUT, it is a scrumptious frozen treat, fit for the holidays, offering nutritive benefit and a little festive fun along with it all.
If peppermint isn’t your thing or just not your thing today, the chocolate base with the vanilla greek yogurt still makes a perfect base for whatever you want to top it with so have fun with it. Try them with fresh fruits, dried fruits or your favorite superfoods!
- 1 cup organic semi-sweet chocolate chips melted
- 1½ cups organic greek yogurt I used Fage's Lactose-Free Greek Yogurt
- 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup I personally love stockins raw honey; add half the honey and adjust up to desired sweetness
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- organic peppermint candy crushed (about 4 candy canes for me)
- Line baking sheet with foil. Set aside. *See notes
- Melt chocolate and spread across the foil lined baking sheet. If your oven will allow you to do so, you can place them on your pan or in molds and put them in at 125° just until melted. A simple light tap of your pan/mold will even out the chocolate.If not using a mold, you may want to be mindful that there is some sort of rim or edge to contain your melted chocolate so it doesn't just spread all over the place and possibly thinner than you would like.
- Place chocolate into the freezer to harden.
- In a medium bowl, stir together Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla.
- Spread the yogurt mixture on top of the chocolate and scatter peppermint candy throughout the yogurt mixture.
- Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Break into pieces, cut into squares or remove from molds, and serve immediately.
