Hot Cocoa Frozen Yogurt

The heat wave that clobbered us last week has gone as quickly as it arrived.  We’ve had a couple beautiful warm days and have even been able to turn off the a/c and throw the windows open.  But when we were in the midst of 100+ temps, the kids were screaming for ice cream.  This was a great recipe to make with them because all you do is stir it up and pour it into the ice cream maker for about 15 minutes.  That is literally it.  Quick and easy and a cold treat in minutes.

Recipe:  Hot Cocoa Frozen Yogurt

(adapted from kitchenability)

2 ½ cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
½ cup and 2 tbsp. instant hot cocoa mix
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. marshmallow fluff
2-3 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2-3 Tbsp. Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Bits*  (These come in chocolate or vanilla flavored.  We used chocolate.)

Stir Greek yogurt and hot cocoa mix together until combined.  Add the vanilla extract and marshmallow fluff and stir again until mixed.  Stir in mini chocolate chips and marshmallow bits until everything is fully incorporated.  Transfer to ice cream maker until your desired consistency is achieved.  (It doesn’t take long to reach a soft-serve consistency, so keep an eye on it.)

(If you don’t have an ice cream machine, just pour your mixture into a freezer-safe container, cover, and freeze overnight.)

*The Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Bits can usually be found in the baking aisle.

    This looks delicious! Even though I don’t have an ice cream maker, I need to try making it! Are the toppings whipped cream and chocolate chips?
