mint triple chocolate frozen yogurt shake

Share this post:

Remember when I got an ice cream maker for my birthday last year and it was pretty much the most amazing thing ever? I made sorbet and  ice cream and even more sorbet. Well, the much-used summer appliance has been dormant for a few months thanks to the chilly temperatures. But I pulled it out this past weekend after I remembered last year’s Shamrock Shake recipe. I wanted to try my hand at a not-so-sweet, not-so-caloric version and this shake is where I landed.

I really wanted to try literal frozen yogurt. So I scooped out some chocolate Greek yogurt, put it in my ice cream machine and the end result was a perfectly textured, tangy soft serve. I was really happy with the results! In fact, the basin for my ice cream machine is staying in my freezer so I can make frozen yogurt any time I want.

I resisted the urge to just eat the stuff right out of the machine and instead blended it into this milk yogurt shake. This isn’t as sickly sweet as your usual milkshake (you could add a bit of honey if you miss that) but I think the tang of the yogurt makes it interestingly addictive! It won’t completely replace the beauty of a creamy Shamrock Shake, but it does make for a nice everyday treat.
