Chocolate Avocado Frozen Yogurt

I had an exciting night last night! Why? Because one of my recipes finally made TasteSpotting! It was my Crowd-Pleasing Chicken Taquitos!

Most people don’t understand why that makes me so happy, but if you’re a foodie, you know that TasteSpotting is a big deal! I talked about it a bit on this post a few weeks ago. Until I started submitting my own photos and recipes, I didn’t think it was that hard to get on their website, but boy was I wrong! They are tough judges. So far, I’ve had 27 photos declined. Until now :) .

On a similar subject, I came across an interesting article this morning discussing another new way that the internet and social media are transforming the way we eat and cook. There is now a Twitter account that gives 24/7 food advice called @Food52. Don’t know what to substitute for an ingredient you’re missing? Just tweet at them! Though, if you tweet your question at 3am, you may have to wait a few minutes for answer (who’s cooking at 3am anyways?!?). I think it’s a neat concept – though I can almost always find answers to my questions like that by googling them. It’s definitely a cool way to make use of Twitter.

Moving on to my recipe for today: Chocolate Avocado Frozen Yogurt.

If you’ve been reading my blog, that may sound a little familiar. Well, it is! All I did was combine the idea behind my Chocolate Avocado Pudding and my Avocado Ice Cream.  I just added a little greek yogurt and milk to my pudding recipe, froze it, and blended it. And Chocolate Avocado Frozen Yogurt was born!

All you do is…

Put all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

Blend until smooth.

Put it in a bowl, cover and freeze.

Run warm water over the bowl to get it out.

Chop it up and put it back in a blender or processor.

Blend until smooth again.

And enjoy!

Chocolate Avocado Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 3.5 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3.5 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup vanilla Chobani yogurt
  • 1/4 cup milk

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. You will probably need to blend a few times and stir it around a bit until you get the creamiest texture.
  2. Put it in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, and freeze.
  3. Once frozen, run warm water over the bottom of the bowl so that the mixture will easily slide out.
  4. Chop up the frozen block and put it in a food processor or blender.
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. Enjoy!

    That looks soooo good! I love the idea of hiding veggies in desserts. :)

  2. Congrats on your Tastespotting debut! Your taquitos certainly deserve to be recognized; they look so good! I’ve actually never been on the Tastespotting site, so I’m definitely going to check it out!

    Avocado frozen yogurt sounds and looks delicious!

  3. Okay, so this recipe had my stomach growling, and led me to your avocado pudding & ice cream recipes. MAN! Who would’ve thought that such a creative dish could be created out of such simple ingredients? Thanks for sharing, Caroline

  4. Congratulations on getting on Tastespotting! And on being persistent enough to try 27 times, that’s what you need to get to your goals! The frozen yogurt looks good and it’s certainly super-healthy with the main fat being from the avocado. I’ve only recently gotten bold enough to try avocado in my smoothie and it worked very well, just adding creaminess but no overpowering flavor. I’ll have to give your avocado desserts a try!

      Avocados in smoothies and desserts are a relatively new discovery for me too – so good! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
