An easy Homemade S’more Frozen Yogurt recipe using only 7 ingredients! S’mores never tasted so good and guilt free!
Let’s celebrate National Dairy Month in the best way possible, with an easy Homemade S’more Frozen Yogurt recipe. Because S’mores and Frozen Yogurt are a must in the summer!
We are officially in the summer months! Can you believe it!?
Summer was always my favorite growing up. For one, my birthday was in the summer, in fact it was this past weekend. Happy Birthday to me! And two, it meant play time all day long!
We lived in a cul de sac growing up and were outside from sunrise till sunset! We would ride our bikes, play street hockey on our roller blades, play kickball using the bases we spray painted on the street, or baseball. We would get in our swim suits and jump from the roof onto a trampoline that had a sprinkler spraying under it.
On a side note, so dangerous… what were we thinking!?!
But every week we would ride our bikes up to the ice cream shop, Boy Blue, a couple blocks away. It was my favorite! They had the best shakes, chocolate banana was my shake of choice. My brother would always get an ice cream cone topped with strawberry sauce or dunked in chocolate for a hard shell. Sometimes we would even take our dog with us and he would get a puppy cone which was devoured in seconds. We would ride back to the house, cones in hand and ice cream melting down our arms.
I have so many happy memories in the summer.
And now, as a mom I want Cason to have those same memories. I want him to be out in the backyard digging holes, playing barefoot, living in a swimsuit, and of course ice cream dripping down his arm because he can’t eat it fast enough in the hot summer sun.
That’s what summer is all about!
For today’s recipe I combined two summer staples. Frozen Yogurt and S’mores!
The best thing about making your own ice cream or frozen yogurt? You get to choose what goes in it. You get to choose what products you want to use. Which yogurt, which milk or cream. Dairy is budget friendly and comes in a variety of forms to meet individual needs; and one of ours family needs is lactose free. We just feel better in the tummy area when we have lactose free milk.
Part of the reason we choose lactose free Cows Milk is because I don’t want to miss out on the nutrients that come in cows milk. Especially with a growing boy who needs his Calcium, Vitamin D, and protein. This kid lives on milk and yogurt. What can I say, I stay true to my Wisconsin roots. Yogurt has been an integral part of our families’ diet for years. It is a good source of protein and an excellent source of calcium, but it also contains probiotics which may support digestive health1.
So, for this Homemade S’more Frozen Yogurt, which of course my son helped me make and by the looks of the picture you can tell he was ready to devour, you’ll only need 7 ingredients! Hola!
I used Greek Yogurt, because I like the creaminess of it. Milk to make it smooth. Honey and vanilla to sweeten the yogurt. Then all the S’more staples … chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows. Ya’ll this recipe is creamy, dreamy and delicious, has 16 grams of protein and 201 calories per serving (1/2 cup). It’s froyo perfection!
This summer, instead of buying your ice cream. Take some time to make memories with your kiddos and make the ice cream … then devour it together!
Bon Appetit ya’ll!
