3 Easy Ways to Indulge with Yogurt
As a mother of three, I share so much with my kids, basically everything. But I have a guilty little pleasure that I'm going to let you in on. After the kids go to sleep at night, I like to have a little special treat. All to myself. Heavenly, right? I make myself a snack, and then I get to eat the whole thing quietly without any little greedy hands trying to join in on the action!
I'm a self-proclaimed snack food junkie, but sometimes a girl's just got to indulge her sweet tooth! Ice cream is an obvious and tasty choice, but not-so-easy on the waist band, if you know what I mean. That's why I'm so glad I found Muller's new Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt. The flavors are based off of decadent ice cream flavors, and it really does taste like ice cream! All the indulgent decadent flavor a girl really wants, with added nutritional benefits!
So, while the boys were at preschool, the Princess and I headed out to Walmart to pick up our supplies to make my tasty (secret) bedtime snacks. The Princess was pretty excited when in the yogurt section, so I made sure to pick up some extra for the kids too. Yogurt is one of their absolute favorite snacks, and they deserve a little treat too, right? Plus, it's a good source of protein and has less sugar than other yogurts, so no mommy guilt here!
The kids really enjoyed their yogurt snack and after a loooong, hard day, I finally got to enjoy mine too. So without further ado, here are three easy ways to indulge with yogurt!
1. Easy Yogurt Cake with Ganache and Fresh Berries
What you'll need:
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 (5.3 ounce) containers of Muller's Raspberry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup vegetable or canola oil
- Fresh berries for topping
- 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 6 tablespoons butter
- ¾ cup half & half, cream, or whole milk
Directions for Easy Yogurt Cake with Ganache and Fresh Berries
1. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
2. In a separate, larger mixing bowl, add yogurt, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat until well combined and a little bit bubbly.
3. Slowly beat in the flour mixture. Beat just until combined.
4. Fold in the vegetable or canola oil.
5. Bake in a 350° oven in a 9-inch cake pan or indented tart/flan pan (I used the indented pan so there would be more room for the ganache and berries!) for 25- 40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
6. For the Ganache: Process chocolate chips in a food processor until they're fine crumbs. In a small saucepan, add butter and cream, and bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Slowly pour hot cream mixture into food processor with chocolate chip crumbs. Process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
7. When the cake is done baking, you can pour the warm ganache over the cake and top with fresh berries.
2. Mint Chocolate Chip Parfait
What you'll need:
- Brownie Bites, cut into even smaller bits
- Fudge Sauce
- 1 (5.3 ounce) container Muller's Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt
- Whipped cream
Directions for Mint Chocolate Chip Parfait
1. In a small bowl or ice cream dish, create small layers with bites first, then fudge sauce, then yogurt. Repeat until bowl is full. (I only needed to do this twice.)
2. Top with whipped cream and dig in!
3. Toffee Vanilla Bean Dip with Pie Crust Cookies
What you'll need:
- 1 (5.3 ounce) container Muller's Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt
- ⅓ cup toffee bits
- ½ batch of pie crust, uncooked (You can use frozen, or you can try this easy 3-ingredient recipe!)
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- ¼ cup sugar
Directions for Toffee Vanilla Bean Dip with Pie Crust Cookies
1. In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt and toffee bits. Pop this in the refrigerator to chill for a bit while you make the cookies.
2. Roll out your pie crust on a floured surface. It should be the same thickness as it would be for a pie, but I tried to make mine into a more rectangular shape.
3. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut the pie crust into about 2- inch wide strips. Then go back and cut 2-inch strips in the other direction, so that you have 2-inch by 2-inch square. Cut each square in half, diagonally, like a sandwich. You should have a bunch of little triangles now.
4. With a pastry brush, brush the melted butter over the pie crust triangles. Then sprinkle with sugar.
5. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 350° oven for 7-12 minutes, until the bottoms are golden. If you notice your cookies still look a little translucent, you'll need to pop them back in the oven. They should be baked and flaky all the way through.
6. Once your pie crust cookies are cooled down a bit (or at least enough to touch!), you can grab your Toffee Vanilla Bean Dip from the refrigerator and indulge!
