Frozen Fage yogurt
In this hot weather I've been experimenting with putting my cup of Fage (2%) in the freezer for half an hour before eating it as a sort of frozen yogurt dessert (a bit like Pinkberry, but sourer and, in my opinion, better). So far toppings have included walnuts and honey with cinnamon, crushed peanut butter malt balls, Trader Joe's raspberry/ chocolate chip trail mix, and fresh strawberries and brown sugar. Honey does not seem to stand up very well to the freezing, becoming too gluey. Does anyone have any other good ideas for Fage frozen desserts?
katielp, When Fage went on sale I stocked up and wound up freezing 20 cups..then decided to treat the yogurt like a dessert. Excellent in smoothies this way as well.
Regarding the honey, have you tried warming the honey in the microwave and drizzling it over frozen Fage-really good.
Last time, I warmed sliced bananas, toasted pecans and ginger maple syrup together in a small pan and drizzled it onto semi-frozen Fage.
I've never tried freezing it, but lately, I've been doing a combination in my greek yogurt of a few drops lemon extract, a few drops orange oil, and crumbled dehydrated strawberries. Oh, and a packet of equal (of course you could use sugar). It's quite tasty. I bet it would be delicious when partially frozen.
Put some apricot preserves (love TJ's w/ the chunks in it) into a saucepan, and allow to melt and liquefy a bit, then pour over yogurt.
This is gonna sound weird, but I love salty and sweet, so I would love to mix in some crushed pb filled pretzels from TJ's and/or the chocolate covered pretzels... I love when pretzels suck up ice cream and get soggy.
Similarly, mix in some broken waffle cone pieces, then top with fruit later, or the same with graham cracker crumbs.
Like others, LOVE Fiber One, Granny's Apple Granola, or Raisin Bran Crunch (or Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Cap'n Crunch or Apple Jacks or Frosted Flakes or buttered popcorn) mixed in or on top...
