Frozen yogurt is one of the best ways to cool down, but those froyo shops can get expensive. Like everything, way cheaper home made. This recipe makes a creamy frozen yogurt pop that’s loaded with crunchy almonds and chocolate.
I’m an so excited to have become a Stonyfield blogger, they’re truly my favorite yogurt company! Their Greek yogurt is a staple in my house, I use it for everything! I love their focus on organic quality ingredients, that’s something that is very important to me. This month they’ve teamed up with Unreal Candy, another great company which also focuses on high quality ingredients: no corn syrup, GMOs, or artificial color in these candies.
I’ll be honest I originally wanted to post a recipe featuring their Candy Coated Milk Chocolates. I had visions of fun colorful treats in my mind. Then I opened the bag and tried one, and well one turned into the whole bag. They’re seriously amazing, I don’t know if I’ll ever eat an M&M again. The colors aren’t as bright due to the lack of artificial colors but that taste is incredible, I couldn’t stop myself from eating them!
This year was my first Florida living in Florida for the summer months, I was prepared to be a little sweat ball throughout July and August. However, I was not prepared for September to seem even hotter. End of October is here, and it’s still pretty warm outside. Where I’m used to fall foliage and layers suddenly I found myself dying of heat! I knew I wanted to do a frozen treat for my October post something to help me cool down. These popsicles are so creamy and delicious a touch of honey and some Unreal Almond Butter cups provide the perfect kiss of sweetness in these pops. The Greek yogurts adds a bit of protein to these low sugar pops making them a great healthy treat.
