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.
Chocolate Avocado Frozen Yogurt
- 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
- 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.
- Put it in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, and freeze.
- Once frozen, run warm water over the bottom of the bowl so that the mixture will easily slide out.
- Chop up the frozen block and put it in a food processor or blender.
- Blend until smooth.
