Monkey Business FroYo

I wasn’t sure whether or not to put this in the Resourceful Living blog, or the cooking blog. I mean, it is a recipe, but it was created because I found all this yogurt on sale! Silk, Goats Milk and this weird Coconut yogurt. I bought three of the large tubs with the intention of making FroYo with them. So I decided to make a “Yogurt” entry in the Resourceful Living Blog, with links to several different FroYo recipes. A Lovin Spoons right in my kitchen!… I was definitely starting to spend way too much time and money at FroYo places and would sometimes plan my day around what FroYo place I was near…

The Monkey Business Fro Yo I made with the Goats Milk Yogurt and I liked it! Goats Milk Yogurt has a tanginess to it, but it gave more depth to the FroYo. Feel free to be your own chef here though and use different kinds of yogurt. Go nuts (no pun intended).

1 container plain goats milk yogurt
1 cup Hersheys cocoa powder
3/4 cup agave syrup
1 banana, cut length wise and then in pieces
handful of salted peanuts, crushed

Blend the yogurt, cocoa powder and agave syrup in a blender. Cool in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker (I use the Cuisinart one) and churn for 15 minutes. At the 15 minute mark, add the banana chunks and peanuts and churn for another 5-10 minutes. Eat right away for a soft serve textured FroYo, or freeze for a harder, more ice cream like version.
