My son is a little bit of a peanut butter freak.
To be fair, his dad might be a bit of one too.
I would be inclined to say it’s a man thing but I’m into it to, so… there’s that.
Peanut butter chocolate is obviously a tried-and-true combo so combining them for a delicious frozen treat may not be overly unique but, no less, makes total sense.
Mix It Up
Don’t feel like you absolutely have to put that top layer of chocolate on. This is an opportunity, my friend – an opportunity for you to get creative. You might try some fresh chopped nuts, fruit (although, if using banana, I’m going to suggest putting banana between the chocolate and the yogurt so it doesn’t get some funky color to it), shredded coconut or whatever you’re into. Hey, worst case scenario – you scrape it off the top, it looks a little ugly and you shove it in your mouth and enjoy it anyway.
Bon Ding Dang Appétit!
Peanut Butter Cup Froyos
- 1½ cup organic semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
- 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 scoop Orgain Protein Powder, Peanut Butter Cup flavor optional
- 2 tbsp organic PB Fit peanut butter powder see notes
- Line baking sheet with foil. Set aside. *See notes
- Melt half of your chocolate chips 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, peanut butter powder and protein powder, if you're using it.
- Spread the yogurt mixture on top of the chocolate and drizzle or pour the rest of your melted chocolate on top.
- Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Break into pieces, cut into squares or remove from molds, and serve immediately.
